Case Summary:

A Chinese postdoctoral researcher hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file two I-140 petitions on her behalf: one under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) and the other under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Our client initially hired us to file an NIW petition but later decided to retain our services to file an EB-1A as well. Thanks to customized petitions we put together for her, both her petitions were approved without the issuance of RFE.

Our client’s specialized research has focused on developing new synthetic methodologies to improve drug development efficacy. Her research in the field of organic chemistry is of great importance because of the significance of organic chemistry and its applications in the modern world. As evidence of her research success, her work has resulted in six peer-reviewed scientific articles and one book chapter, which have been cited for more than 180 times, and she has also conducted 7 peer reviews. In the petition letter, we presented the citations she accumulated worldwide through the effective use of figures, which clearly and concisely demonstrated the implementation of her work around the world.

In addition, her fellow experts have provided their insight into her research projects. According to one of the recommenders,

“In order for the U.S. to maintain its prominence in this important global market, it must continue to support researchers aiming to develop optimized, cost-effective chemical synthesis methods. For this reason, [client’s] work falls well within the purview of this nation’s interests, and I encourage your full support of her work.”

The approval of both our client’s I-140 NIW and EB1A petitions is an encouraging sign of the effectiveness of our firm’s legal strategy. The key to our firm’s high success rate is that we always thoroughly review our client’s backgrounds and credentials prior to drafting their letters. We sincerely thank our client for trusting us with the preparation of her I-140 petitions, as well as giving us an opportunity to be a part of her success story.
