Case Summary:

In this specific case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates assisted a client who had worked in the field of pharmaceutical science as they sought permanent residence through an EB1-A (Aliens of Extraordinary Ability) petition. It is important to note that the organization of evidence in order to adequately establish a candidate as possessing “extraordinary ability,” must be provided with the utmost meticulousness taking into account all criteria the client is claiming via their petition.

As we at Chen Immigration Law Associates developed a unique strategy for this case, it was important to take into account that this client had published work in both Chinese and English, establishing her as extremely productive in comparison with the average published works of her colleagues. In order to providing this evidence, it was crucial that top analytical programs were utilized, which adequately established a median for published works among researchers in the field of pharmaceutical science. After emphasizing the total number of published works, (109) we at Chen Immigration Law Associates made note of the contributions and impact of these published works as they had been cited at least 955 times total with 675 citations coming from the client’s English peer-review journals, and 280 citations from Chinese publications.

Above and beyond establishing the qualifications of this client associated with her published works and high citation record, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates established the client’s proof of extraordinary ability through the criteria established by the case Kazarian vs. USCIS. This case sets forth a two-part approach where the evidence is first counted and then, if qualifying under at least three criteria, considered in the context of a final merits determination. In order to provide this evidence, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted six recommendation letters for the recommenders to review, edit, and sign. These letters provided additional testimony highlighting that: (1) this client had lent her expertise as a peer reviewer of at least seven internationally-recognized prestigious scientific journals; (2) this client had original scientific contributions of major significance in her field and; (3) this client had authored scholarly articles in the field, in professional or major trade publications or other major media.

Following the quotation of testimony associated with each of these criteria, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked directly with the client, substantiating each piece of evidence with associated research applicable, to provide further evidentiary support and establish additional qualifications for a swift approval of this client’s petition.

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 in just 31 Days.

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!
