Case Summary:

The client that we had the opportunity to represent in this case was a Research Associate from India working in the field of materials science.  He had made original and significant contributions to materials science through his leading work on soft/hard material assembly and structural characterization.  At the time of case filing, his work had resulted in at least 25 peer-reviewed articles published in leading field journals; these publications had accumulated at least 232 citations at the time his case was filed, serving as objective evidence of his sustained international acclaim, as well as his major influence and impact on his field.  Furthermore, he had experience with judging the work of others in his field, having reviewed at least 7 manuscripts for internationally-recognized prestigious scientific journals in his field.  A noted figure in his field had the following comment about his research aptitude: “[He] is among a select few scientists in the world with a mastery of the immensely sophisticated techniques of X -ray scattering necessary for in situ studies. [. . .] He stands far above other comparably trained physicists, and his contributions have already been exceptional.” It was our aim to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability, as he sought to remain in the United States to continue working in the field of materials science, and that his continued work would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the documentation that we provided, his case was approved in just 4 days.
