Case Summary:

A research associate hired us to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We started evaluating his credentials after his approach and noted that he is a holder of a Ph.D. in epidemiology and has many years of experience in clinical outcomes and health services research, which made him a perfect candidate to continue pursuing his research work in the field of clinical epidemiology. Our client’s EB-1A petition consisted of the following information:

Research Brief: We discovered our client’s research on chronic comorbidity type and their impact on diabetes care and how his other research work addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including the effects of socioeconomic factors on health outcomes, and role of palliative care in surgical patients. We concluded that his work is of the utmost significance due to its direct applicability in global efforts to address chronic health disparities and improve clinical outcomes..

Citation Count: We also recorded the 345 times his work has been cited by independent and leading researchers from prominent institutions around the world, at least in 35 countries, highlighting that his work has been highly recognized and widely executed.

Publication & Peer-Review Experience: We highlighted the 31 peer-reviewed scientific articles, published in some of the top-ranked journals in the field. Besides, we noted that he has assessed the work of his peers for remarkably acclaimed journals and professional conferences 180 times. Thus, conducting peer reviews for these distinct journals is a testament to his standing as a globally recognized expert in the field of clinical epidemiology.

To further support our client’s petition, we included recommendation letters obtained by him from 4 fellow experts, stating how our client’s work is vital. The following excerpts have been taken from two of the submitted letters:

“[Client’s] advanced data management techniques and his deep look at the connection between socioeconomic factors and treatment outcomes are representative of his critical place within the field of clinical epidemiology.”

“It is without hesitation that I declare he is a prolific and influential researcher. The healthcare sector overall and the health of millions, stand to benefit from [client’s]continued work in the United States.”

With over 17,000 approved cases, we have unprecedented expertise in handling I-140 petitions. When our client approached our law firm, we kept him updated about all the adjudicating trends of USCIS and accordingly customized his EB-1A petition. A big thanks to premium processing (PP) service, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication (the case will be processed within 15 days instead of 9-12 months).

Gladly, our client was able to achieve his EB-1A approval just in 10 days with the PP request. We are happy to be able to help our client and wish him well as he advances in his chosen path.
