Case Summary: 

This EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case involved a talented assistant sound designer and arranger who is advancing the artistic field of music composition, arrangement, and performance. She hired North America Immigration Law Group to help her compile and file an I-140 petition and an I-485 application (the two steps that make up the green card process).  

Over the course of her illustrious career, our client has written and performed songs that have won awards, received extensive media coverage, been used in commercials and as theme songs to television programs, and topped music charts in Japan. Her innate talent for piano performance has earned her a spot as one of the most successful pianists to emerge from her birth country of Japan. As part of our strategy, we established that our client will continue inspiring the musical community in the United States. We also demonstrated that it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find another musician who can mirror our client’s contributions to this nationally imperative cultural field.

According to a professional pianist who contributed a recommendation letter in support of our client’s EB-1A petition: “I firmly believe in the unprecedented musical talent that [Client] possesses. Her success has been well-earned, and she has the drive needed to continue growing as an artist and to continue producing new music that touches lives across the U.S., in her home country of Japan, and around the world.”

As our client chose to file her I-485 application while her I-140 petition was pending, she did not have to wait very long before she received a notice from the USCIS informing her that her green card had been approved. We join our client and her husband in celebrating this joyous occasion, and wish them the best in their future endeavors in the United States.
