Case Summary:

This specific case presented a unique challenge. A well-accomplished guitarist with objectively weak credentials wanted to file for an EB1-A (Aliens of Extraordinary Ability) petition. As this client had been featured in a number of publications with an international viewership, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates believed we could gather enough evidence to substantiate his extraordinary ability.

As each case presents unique challenges, it is imperative that we at Chen Immigration Law Associates work diligently with each client to help procure the best possible evidence for all claimed criteria. As this case dealt with a musician, it was important to provide claim of this client’s contributions. Unfortunately, the idea of contributions associated with music can often be quite subjective; therefore, it was important that these contributions be reinforced through the testimony of exceptional talents and authorities in the field of instrumental world music.

In order to do this effectively, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked directly with the client to secure eight recommenders willing to provide testimony on his behalf. We then worked directly with these recommenders to draft the best possible letters associated with this client’s exceptional and extraordinary contributions to his field of endeavor.

Considering this client had performed at many internationally acclaimed and substantial venues, contributed his work over the publishing and sales of numerous albums, and created a new instrument for musical performance, we referenced these achievements to further provide claim associated with the importance of his ongoing work within his field.

Finally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates cited the awards this client had accrued during his career. Because he had been honored by many foundations and recognized for his original and outstanding contributions to the field of Instrumental World Music, we emphasized the value associated with these awards and the processes for choosing recipients.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on January 18th, 2013.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
