Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) continuously strives to align our legal services with the needs of our clients and to provide them with the right immigration solutions. Thanks to our knack of making informed decisions and expertise in putting together strong I-140 petitions, we enjoyed another moment of triumph as we obtained an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval for a Chinese assistant professor working in the field of mechanical engineering just 7 days after filing.

Highlights of the EB-1A Petition Package:

We proved that our client’s research has paved the way for finding answers to real-world problems in the field of mechanical engineering. He has been working on solutions to some of today’s toughest challenges, such as limiting friction and improving energy sustainability for a plethora of applications to all mechanical settings that involve friction. We used his expansive research and strong background in tribology, lubrication engineering, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering as one of the main highlights of the EB-1A petition. This helped us prove to the USCIS that his cutting-edge knowledge in the field has accounted for the overall development of the United States on the economic front.

Apart from highlighting our client’s significant breakthroughs in the field of mechanical engineering, we showcased his record of authorship in this discipline. Our client’s petition packet included data on the 20 peer-reviewed journal articles and 3 conference papers he had authored at the time of filing. We also listed the 20 peer reviews he had conducted for high-impact scientific journals. Additionally, we noted his citation metrics, which quantified the current societal impact of his research: when we filed our client’s petition, his work had garnered 162 citations.

In order to corroborate this EB-1A petition, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by several industry experts. This is what one of our client’s recommenders had to say about his work: “It is evident that [Client’s] technologies extend far beyond the purview of his own research. [Client] provided further insight into the study of industrial materials”.

Our team’s hard work and dedication navigated this EB-1A petition to an approval just 7 days from the date of filing. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client enjoyed a quick response from the USCIS. We congratulate our client on reaching the first milestone in the two-part green card process and we wish him the best as he continues to drive more innovations in the field of mechanical engineering.
