Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and years of experience progressing the field of organic chemistry, our client had suitable qualifications to file his I-140 petition under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). After our client signed and returned the contract, we worked diligently to compile an EB-1A petition packet that highlighted his copious professional achievements. Here are some of the petition’s main points:

  1. Our client’s 14 published papers had collected 327 citations at the time of filing. We used this data to establish that his development of novel treatments of diseases—especially diseases with a high degree of oxidative stress such as cancer and diabetes—are highly regarded by other researchers in the field.
  2. When we filed the case, our client had already conducted 40 peer reviews for an array of prominent scientific periodicals. His impressive review experience denoted the significance of his opinions to other organic chemists.
  3. We helped our client go through a list of his supporters who could serve as recommenders. After thoroughly reviewing their credentials, we selected six candidates, all of whom had worked with our client and/or were familiar with his research. We then urged our client to reach out to them for recommendation letters. One of these experts noted that “[Client] has been conducting groundbreaking research in this regard, and he is one of the few researchers who have impacted this area to a considerable degree.” Another recommender described our client as “… one researcher who has thoroughly examined these compounds in an effort to improve the strategies available for treating cancer all over the world.”

Premium Processing:

Our client elected to file his EB-1A petition under Premium Processing (PP). By paying an additional $1,225 to the USCIS, petitioners can enjoy rapid adjudication within 15 days. In this case, our client only waited 9 days for Texas Service Center to approve his petition. We congratulate our client and wish him well as he files an I-485 application. As the final step in the green card process, an approved I-485 application will lead to a green card.
