Case Summary:

Just 21 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( submitted an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral fellow in the field of medical biology, Texas Service Center approved his case. There is no denying that our conscientious presentation of the client’s work and effective coordination laid the groundwork for this success. In order to establish the credibility of our client, we highlighted some of these key points in his petition:

  • Our client’s research results have been advocated by veterans in the field of medical biology. A big part of his petition’s success was played by the recommendation letters contributed by top researchers in the field. According to one of them: His work has a great deal of translational value in medical research, which distinguishes [Client] as a microbiologist with a strong inclination toward the pharmaceutical application of his findings.”
  • We shed light on our client’s impressive publication record. At the time of filing, he had already published 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 3 patents. Additionally, we focused on his citation record: his work had garnered at least 148 citations in other peer-reviewed journal articles when we filed his case.
  • Our client’s petition also featured his specialized research on the mechanisms behind various diseases and how to take advantage of them for therapeutic applications. His work focused on the treatment and prevention of Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection, protein trafficking defects in diseases, and the treatment of cancer based on TASK3 channels. Based on the information we gathered, we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client’s work is highly valuable in improving widespread public health.

Less than 2 weeks after filing, our client decided to upgrade his EB1A case to Premium Processing (PP). We are pleased that the USCIS did not issue a Request for Evidence (RFE) and instead, gave their approval 9 days later. We congratulate our client for winning his first battle in the two-part process of obtaining permanent residence.
