Case Summary:

A Chinese postdoctoral associate contracted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him attain an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Although he had very strong credentials, he needed our help to fine tune his petition packet and present a convincing case to the USCIS.

The Journey:

Taken together, our client’s Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Neuroscience, 14 publications, 240 citations, and 31 instances of peer review service established his influence in the field of neuroscience. We demonstrated that he is a force to be reckoned with and that he is a suitable candidate for EB-1A. We also included testimonials contributed by other experts working in the field. These experts willingly agreed to advocate for the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by signing recommendation letters. One of our client’s recommenders (a renowned professor) had this to say about his work: “[Client] has performed exceptional, original research towards our understanding of neurological disorders such as ischemic stroke and brain tumors, providing the medical community with critical knowledge and advanced studies that remain unrivaled by his peers. [Client’s] studies are of paramount importance to medical research in the United States, and his steady stream of achievements have thus far provided a veritable assurance that his future endeavors will be as successful as his past undertakings.” By highlighting our client’s work on the molecular mechanisms and pharmacological treatment of neurological disorders, especially ischemic stroke and brain tumors, this professor and his peers demonstrated the importance of our client’s research efforts to the United States.

In Conclusion:

Just 6 days after we filed the case on our client’s behalf, the USCIS approved his EB-1A petition. Our client is now significantly closer to permanent residence and all he has to do is file I-485 applications for himself and his dependent. Once the USCIS approves their applications, they can begin their new lives as American permanent residents. We wish our client the best with this, and we thank him for selecting our law firm to represent his EB-1A case.
