Case Summary:

An engineering company based in California sponsored the EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition of one of its scientists. With a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, ample experience in the field of biochemistry, and an array of accolades to show for his groundbreaking research, he was a good fit for EB1B.

Before taking on the case, North America Immigration Law Group ( confirmed that the company was willing to serve as the petitioner and provide us with the necessary paperwork. Once that was confirmed, we formed an attorney-client relationship with the aforementioned scientist, who furnished us with a comprehensive research summary so that we could better understand his research and prepare a strong EB1B case.

Our client’s EB1B petition contained a myriad of information pertaining to his work on the structure and function of kinesins from pathogenic fungi and understanding small molecule aggregation. We also listed the 152 citations gathered from his 11 publications and the 12 times he judged the work of his peers. Not just that, we incorporated recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field. These experts fully supported our argument that our client should remain in the US to continue his important research. According to one of them: “[Client] is actively leading the field, and is acknowledged as an expert in enzyme engineering, small molecule aggregation, biotechnology, pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry, and biophysics. This marks [Client] as one of those immeasurably important researchers working in the United States.”

As our client opted to file his EB1B petition using Premium Processing (PP), the USCIS approved his case just 5 days later. PP is an add-on option offered by the USCIS that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 days. By paying them an additional $1,225, our client did not have to wait the average 4-9 months.

Overall, it was a pleasure working with our client, and we congratulate him for obtaining EB1B approval. We also thank him for retaining our I-485 services to help him and his dependent adjust their status for permanent residence. We look forward to helping them obtain their green cards, and we wish our client the best as he continues to conduct important research here in the US.
