Case Summary:

“…[Client] has shown himself to be an indispensable researcher for the field of atomic and particle physics, providing experimental evidence of the incredible nature of quantum systems. Through his contributions, our understandings of these systems have been amplified, and the field as a whole has benefitted immeasurably.”

This impactful quote is one of many statements made by specialists in our client’s field of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. These experts contributed recommendation letters to support our client’s EB-1A petition. North America Immigration Law Group helped our client, a postdoctoral associate from China, gather these testimonials, and we included them in the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition we filed on his behalf. As our client asked us to file his case using Premium Processing, the USCIS sent an approval notice six days later.

In our petition packet, we included information that demonstrated the importance of our client’s continued research to the United States. For example, we discussed his work on the quantum properties of cooled atoms to test quantum mechanical theories. We established the importance of understanding cooled atoms in order to integrate cold atom technologies into superconductors and other highly-relevant advanced technologies. As part of our organized approach to an effective petition, we also included our client’s peer review, citation and publication record. At the time of filing, this record reflected 10 instances of peer review experience, 208 citations, and 4 published papers.

By presenting a clear case, we proved that our client’s work plays a crucial role in advancing innovative technologies.
