Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: March 8th, 2021

Processing Time: 21 months

Case Summary:

A research associate from India holding a Ph.D. in organic chemistry sciences engaged us to build an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition representing his case. As a segment of our legal strategy, we advised him to provide us with the relevant paperwork to ensure his EB1A approval. We determined our client’s research background, expertise field, and further achievements, confirming his extraordinary ability to continue his research work here in the U.S. Finally, we notarized the attorney-client agreement and prepared our client’s petition letter highlighting the below-mentioned details.

  • We described his research on synthesizing supramolecules, novel polymers, and organic materials and how it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the properties of polymers and various types of supramolecules.
  • We noted the 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter published by him in several impacting journals in his field. Further, we validated that he is an active peer-reviewer in the scientific community for highly acclaimed journals, and he has already conducted 15 reviews.
  • Moreover, we detailed the 119 citations his work amassed at the time of filing. The citations to his research come from researchers both in the United States and from around the world. These researchers hail from such prestigious and widespread institutes, demonstrating the international influence of his work in the field of organic chemistry.
  • To support his case further, we attached six recommendation letters in his petition packet. The letters were acquired by our client from fellow experts in the field, corroborating that our client is one of the uncontested leaders in his research specialty here in the U.S. One of the recommenders remarked:

“As an expert organic chemist, [client] is contributing to one of the nation’s most lucrative market sectors, evidencing both the scientific and economic value of his research and work.”

Therefore, we were successful in convincing the USCIS that our client is an asset to the United States, hence our client achieved his EB-1A approval despite a delay. Our entire team would like to thank him for being patient and cooperating with us throughout this journey. Also, we thank him for allowing us to be a part of this success story.
