Client’s Testimonial:

“I came to know about Chen Immigration from web search and decided to choose them since I learned from other client’s testimonial that they were very good at finding shining points for each unique case. I thought this was crucial to an I140 application.

I was impressed by the provisions of immigration law and previous cases they cited in my petition letter. Such a highly professional article definitely cannot be completed by myself in two weeks. I will recommend the Chen Immigration to my colleagues, especially to those who have limited time and want to speed up their application.”

Case Summary:

A gifted research fellow from China hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. After carefully evaluating his credentials, we confirmed that we could build a strong case for him and initiated the contract. As EB-1A is one of the toughest visa categories to obtain approval, we worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client deserved to have his case approved. These are some of the key points that we focused on:

  1. We noted his 4 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 technical reports, and 3 conference papers and demonstrated that various researchers around the world have access to his findings, which by extension, progresses the entire field of industrial engineering as a whole.
  2. Our client’s citation count was also highlighted. At the time of filing, his work had already gathered an impressive 123 citations.
  3. Furthermore, we listed our client’s extensive peer review experience. When we filed his EB-1A petition, he had conducted 30 peer reviews for a variety of high-impact scientific journals.
  4. To further strengthen his petition, we urged him to obtain recommendation letters from other experts in the field. To our delight, our client returned with six strong letters, one of which contained this statement: “[Client’s] placement at this prestigious institution validates his status as a leading researcher and further proves he is among the most talented and skilled researchers in our field.”

Besides the points listed above, we were also able to demonstrate to the USCIS just how important our client’s research is to the United States: we determined that his findings are applied in the transportation industry, supply chain systems, power industry, and manufacturing. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 4 days for the USCIS to approve his petition. We are glad that the USCIS was persuaded to approve his petition, and we wish him the best as he awaits a decision regarding his I-485 application.
