Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in microbiology and many years of experience delivering discerning research, our client undoubtedly possessed the ability to extend in the field of microbiology. He hired North America Immigration Law Group to build an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We evaluated his academic background thoroughly, and affirmed that we could lead him to EB1A victory by demonstrating the below-mentioned details in his EB1A case:

  • We noted the 845 times his work was cited by other specialists in the field, and this high citation count indicates that his findings have provided an ideal foundation for other efforts in the field and confirms his influential status as a researcher. Moreover, we highlighted the 18 peer-reviewed journal articles (17 of them published and 1 of them accepted for publication) he published. An extremely productive record compared to that of others in the shared field, all of which were published in high-impact and internationally circulated journals in the field. Also, we pointed out that he has encouraged progress in the scientific community by serving as a peer referee for esteemed journals. He has provided his criticism and comments on manuscripts 20 times for highly acclaimed journals. This service to the academic community is only performed by those researchers held in the highest regard by their peers, therefore, his repeated invitations to perform peer review confirm that he is an accomplished researcher in his discipline.
  • Establishing one of the essential elements of our client’s EB1A petition was his research on cancer biology that has also led to a better understanding of cell cycle control and apoptosis in mammalian cells addressing some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the mechanisms by which cancer cells form and survive. In addition, his strong background in bacterial cytokinesis and metabolism has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in the potential identification of alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of pathogenic E. coli and other pathogenic bacteria.
  • Further reinforcing our client’s petition, we added six recommendation letters provided by his fellow expert researchers in the field, corroborating that our client is a preeminent researcher who has uniquely aided progress in his area of expertise, and one of them stated:

“[Client’s] work has served as a basis for the efforts of other scientists, and his achievements distinguish him as a leader among his peers. As such, his work is in high demand. These considerations motivate my belief that he should be allowed to continue his work uninterrupted for the benefit of bacterial cell biology and related scientific disciplines in the United States.”

Conclusively, our client obtained his EB1A petition approval, without any further hurdles. We thank our team and the premium processing service, upgraded by our client for his EB1A petition, which eventually led him to achieve his case approval in less than 2 months. We also genuinely thank our client for trusting our law firm, and now for retaining us for his I-485 application. He is one major step closer to his green card success, and we wish him all the best to achieve his I-485 approval as soon as possible.
