Client’s Testimonial:

“The attorney is very professional and has provided excellent service. All my questions are promptly answered in a very clear and detailed way. Both reference letters and the petition letter are well-written and carefully revised. I sincerely appreciate the efforts and dedication of Chen Immigration Attorneys for my case.”

On May 19th, 2023, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Senior Engineer in the Field of Civil Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Civil Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Engineer

Country of Origin: China

Approval Notice Date: May 19th, 2023

Processing Time: 17 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With an accomplished background in civil engineering, our client, the senior engineer hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him speed up his Green Card process. His current focus is on seismic risk analysis. After evaluating his research backdrop, we deduced that he has already greatly advanced the national interest through his introduction of a probabilistic analysis framework, which also addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including his development of a novel and enhanced structural resilience assessment system, creation of a framework to analyze earthquake-soil interactions, and designing a risk analysis framework for earthquakes.

Additionally, he had received funding from the U.S. DOE and U.S. FEMA. This funding supports projects that protect the infrastructure and energy grid of the United States and aid preventative and recovery efforts for disasters, respectively. Therefore, his research clearly helps anticipate and mitigate the effects of earthquakes on American infrastructure.

We have listed a few relevant points that we added to his petition packet:

  • We noted that his work has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles, published in some of the most authoritative and influential journals in the field.
  • In addition, his research has gathered 189 citations, influencing the field to a significant extent. Since citations represent times that other researchers have used our client’s work to guide, augment, or inspire their own research, and so the fact that he has received so many citations to date is a strong indicator that his work is consistently valuable and impactful for the civil engineering community.
  • Also, it is because of this notable status that academic journals have repeatedly invited him to judge the research papers of his peers as a reviewer. These journals maintain high standards for both papers seeking publication and peer reviewers, ensuring the quality of the works. Impressively, he has been invited to judge the work of his peers more than 35 times and has conducted 30 peer reviews to date.
  • Moreover, four recommendation letters were included to support the relevance of our client’s exceptional expertise, recognized by established peers. One of them stated the below:

“[Client] has significantly improved the quality of literature surrounding probabilistic damage modeling and earthquake risk assessment. His reputation in the field is clearly shown by the high esteem for him among the academic journals that have constantly published his work and invited him to judge the work of others. Underscoring his place of importance in the field of civil engineering is the critical need for his research that improves the resilience of structures during seismic events. Since his work directly impacts the welfare of people all around the world, including those that live in earthquake-prone zones in the United States, it is a priority that his research is supported by any means necessary.”

Our congratulations go out to our client, an exceptional civil engineer with a remarkable track record of research accomplishments and significant influence in his chosen field. With extensive academic and industrial experience, he’s a valuable asset to any institution fortunate enough to have him involved. His hard work and commitment paid off with EB1A approval from USCIS in just 17 days. We wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.
