Case Summary:

Just 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a pathology expert from India, Texas Service Center approved her case. Besides chronicling our client’s medical degree, we included other relevant evidence of our client’s unique skillsets and knowledge. By the time we were ready to file her case, we had amassed an extensive list of her accomplishments. These are some examples:

  • We used Google Scholar to determine our client’s citation count, which stood at 134 citations at the time of filing.
  • We noted the 10 scientific articles in our client’s name, all of which were published in well-known journals.
  • The 9 times our client conducted peer reviews was also noted in her EB1A petition dossier.

The EB1A petition we prepared for our client also contained carefully worded summaries regarding her work on defining pathways and molecular signaling techniques for certain major types of cancer. We established that her efforts address some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how certain types of cancer develop and grow, as well as how to effectively treat them. According to a prominent professor working in the field of pathology: “Without [Client’s] continued research, the United States would lose a remarkable and innovative researcher who is aiding immensely in the search for a cure to cancer.” This statement was taken from the recommendation letter which he contributed in support of our client’s EB1A petition. This letter, and the 5 others our client gathered from her peers, played an important role in convincing the USCIS that she is an asset to the United States.

The approval of our client’s I-140 EB1A is an encouraging sign of the effectiveness of our firm. We congratulate our client for obtaining petition approval, and we thank her for retaining our services to help her and her dependent with their I-485 applications.
