Case Summary:

An Indian postdoctoral scholar hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to build a customized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for him. In preparing our client’s EB1-A petition, we took into consideration USCIS adjudication trends at the time as well as our client’s background, achievements, and contributions to the field of nanoscale engineering.

Our client’s specialized research in nanoscale engineering has focused on the development of affordable and reliable nanomaterials used for printable and flexible electronic devices, lithium batteries, pacemakers, defibrillators, polymer nanocomposites, heterogeneous catalysis and adsorbents for oil and gas, and conductive inks. His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the application of nanoscale materials needed to improve productivity in conductive materials, oil and gas refining, and the energy sector.

At the time we filed his case, he had published 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles, one trade secret and reviewed the work of his peers 22 times in several highly distinguished journals. Our client’s research work also led to technology commercialization and receiving a major US department of energy (DOE) grant. Our team carefully investigated the 186 citations he accumulated, and found out that the citations all came from leading academic institutions around the world. In our customized petition letter, we have presented extensive documentation to prove that our client is not only extending the frontier of nanoscale engineering, but is also gaining knowledge and innovations for the US. We also included graphs to illustrate the outstanding nature of our client’s citation record when compared to the field as a whole.

We also encouraged our client to contact experts of the same field for recommendation letters. Here is how one of the recommenders described our client and his research: “Nanotechnology is playing a defining role across many application areas, and [client] continues to deliver new findings in this exciting area. His previous research has received widespread acclaim from the research community around the world, and his current research has taken new technologies into practical applications that benefit both the economy and the environment. Overall, [client] occupies a prominent role among his scientific peers.”

We are pleased that our efforts paved the way for his EB1A petition approval. We congratulate our client for completing this significant first step in the green card process, and we are glad to list his case among our 16,000 success stories.
