Case Summary:

Just 12 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral associate from India, the USCIS approved his case.

With a doctoral degree and extensive experience conducting research in the field of electrochemical engineering, our client is undoubtedly an extraordinary researcher whose development of nanomaterials for electrochemical energy generation and storage applications greatly benefits the United States. To prove our point, we gathered an array of information pertaining to our client’s accomplishments in the field and incorporated what we learned into his EB1A petition packet.

In a nutshell, the petition we prepared for our client contained carefully worded summaries of his research, his experience serving as a peer reviewer 20 times, and his impressive citation record, which at the time of filing, stood at over 465 citations. We also incorporated an account of his 33 publications. All of this was supplemented by several recommendation letters contributed by other well-known experts in the field, one of whom stated, “His work has and continues to advance the field to an unprecedented degree by pioneering the development of lithium ion battery replacements through environmentally and economically sound means. The United States’ chemical engineering realm is in need of researchers of [Client’s] high caliber.

Not long after our client’s EB1A petition was approved, he retained us to file I-485 applications for him and his spouse. As the final step in the green card process, I-485 approval means a green card. We join our client as he waits for the USCIS to take action on their I-485 applications, and we wish him well as he continues to progress the field of electrochemical engineering.
