General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Case Summary:

Merely 1 week after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition on behalf of a Chinese principal system engineer, the USCIS approved his case. The reason for the swift adjudication is because our client opted for Premium Processing (PP) with his I-140 petition, where he submitted a Form I-907, and paid $1,410 for the premium processing service. Not only did our client have a doctoral degree and ample experience working in the field of mechanical engineering, he also had the full support of his employer—a US company—who served as the case’s petitioner.

After carefully going through his research summary, we concluded that our client’s specialized research addresses some of the United States’s most pressing issues in understanding how to effectively harness the power of optics and photonics to achieve new heights in scientific and technological development. As is the norm, we worked closely with our client to customize his EB-1B petition, and we did this by basing our legal strategy on our client’s research background, accomplishments in the field, and expertise. With nearly 15,000 case approvals in the bag, we have informed numerous clients with the firsthand knowledge of any changes the USCIS makes when adjudicating cases. Furthermore, the likelihood of us securing petition approval was very high as we had petitioned multiple cases with similar backgrounds in the past.

By the time we were ready to file our client’s EB-1B case, we had gathered an array of information related to his work on developing optical and photonics sensors for both fundamental science and industrial applications. We convinced the USCIS that our client’s work is being implemented by a wide range of fields and industries that range from particle physics research to medical therapies and much more. In other words, our client’s work is indeed influential, especially in regards to theoretical studies and experiments in this area by proposing applications utilizing state-of-the-art optical and photonics sensor technologies with unprecedented performance and economic value.

Aside from detailed summaries of our client’s notable research projects, we also discussed the 110 times our client’s 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles were cited along with the 19 peer reviews he performed. Our client’s published articles have been extensively referenced by other scientists, which has left a positive and lasting impression on his field and has generated progress in a range of independent research endeavors among his peers.

Another way we persuaded the USCIS to approve our client’s EB-1B case was by incorporating recommendation letters into his well-crafted petition dossier. These 5 letters were signed by other influential mechanical engineers and highlighted the fact that our client possesses considerable experience and expertise in a highly-specialized field. According to one of these recommenders, “[Client]’s efforts are clearly having a transformative effect on ongoing efforts in the field. In my professional opinion, the leadership that [Client] has shown in his specialized area makes him an indispensable researcher whose work must continue to be fully supported.”.

We are pleased that our diligent efforts led to EB-1B petition approval, and we thank him for choosing us to represent his EB-1B case.
