Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved in 11 Days for Senior Research and Development Engineer in New Jersey in the Field of Computational Engineering (PP Requested)


Client’s Testimonial:

“After having an unsatisfactory experience with another law firm wherein no petition was filed, I decided to hire Victoria Chen and associates to file for my self-petitioned EB1A green card, and I could not be happier about that decision! She is extremely meticulous and detail-oriented, and very prompt at responding to questions/concerns. I was very pleased with the management of my whole case. Every statement in the petition letter had evidence to back it up, making the case stronger and stronger with every iteration. Even though the whole case management from start to finish was electronic, I never felt the need to speak to any of her associates on the phone. Although every case may differ, with her assistance, my application was filed within 4 months. She is highly skilled in her field and comes with my strongest recommendation. Thank you so much for your help!”

Case Summary:

Merely 11 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a gifted engineer, the USCIS approved his case. The rapid timeline was mostly thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a paid service offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days. Even so, we have no doubt that our careful preparation and presentation of our client’s credentials lent a hand in case approval.

What did our client’s EB-1A petition packet contain?

A bulk of his petition was composed of details on his achievements in the field of computational engineering. Amongst other things, we noted the 5 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles and 14 peer-reviewed conference articles to his name, the 182 citations gathered from his work, and the 23 times he conducted peer reviews for a handful of scientific journals. We also detailed our client’s Ph.D. in Mechanical and Materials Engineering and demonstrated his expertise in carrying out impactful fieldwork on computational modeling of human lumbar spine movement and the development of computational models that are useful for the development of medical devices.

Alongside these details were six recommendation letters provided by our client’s peers. These experts strongly advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by making statements such as this: “[Client’s] documented accomplishments and experience is exemplary in the field of mechanical engineering and the subjects of finite element analysis and medical device development. [Client’s] work represents an immeasurable asset for the medical device development industry. As such, [Client] comes with my highest recommendation and strongest professional support for the continuation of his research.” Their support further strengthened our client’s case and persuaded the USCIS that his work addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding ways in which to improve medical devices such as spinal implants and needle technologies.

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval, and we thank him for placing his trust in our law firm to help him navigate the complex green card process.
