General Field: Biochemistry
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher
National Origin: India
Service Center: Texas
Processing Time: 80 days

Case Summary:

On January 30, 2013 another one of Chen Immigration Law Associates’ EB1A (EB1-EA) cases was approved for a petitioner in the field of biochemistry. In EB1A cases it is imperative to not only prove that the field of study has merit, but that the petitioner has risen to the top of their field of endeavor. Additionally, it is vital that the client who is petitioning for approval as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability is able to demonstrate that their achievements are recognized by other experts in the field as beneficial to the United States

In this particular case, we discussed this client’s work in the field of biochemistry, and specifically his contributions in biochemistry for the prevention and treatment of a variety of gastrointestinal diseases and cancer. In order to argue that this work was “extraordinary,” we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted eight recommendation letters that were reviewed, edited, and signed by the recommenders. Of these eight letters, six were from independent recommenders; experts who did not know or work with this client. Independent recommendations are granted more weight and therefore, their expert opinions provided evidence that this client was an expert compared to his peers.

Sometimes EB1A cases present unique challenges. In this specific case, the client had published a significant amount of works, but was not the first author in the majority of his most cited publications. Therefore, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted testimonial letters that were reviewed, edited, and signed by the first authors acknowledging the equally significant contributions this client had made to the research.

Furthermore, in order to set this client apart, we presented evidence of his positions as peer reviewer and leadership roles in professional organizations. Moreover, we used analytical software that demonstrated that the work of this client in bacterial lip modifications and properties of villin were at the top 1% of researchers throughout the United States.

Finally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates understand how to research and present relevant AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) cases that assist in presenting the best evidence to increase the chances for this client to receive an approval for his EB1A petition. Therefore, we were able to demonstrate that this client met the criteria for an EB1A petition and we received approval for this client in 80 days without premium processing.

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 30, 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!
