Success Stories: EB1-A Approval Obtained for a Senior Indian Bioinformatics Scientist, Thanks to North America Immigration Law Group and Our Team of Diligent Experts


Client’s Testimonial:

“I’ve worked closely with Chen Immigration for a couple years to help draft my EB1A and EB2-NIW and they’ve never once dropped the ball on a query or question. Their lawyers are extremely knowledgeable and understand the nuances of immigration beyond any legal group I’ve worked with in the past. I had heard of positive feedback from two other colleagues on their green card applications through Chen Immigration. They don’t mince their words when reviewing a research summary package and bring out the best in your application by meticulously capturing all evidence and documenting it. Due to their prior case load from handling several green card applications, they’ve encountered various outcomes from the USCIS (most positive) which gives them an edge when handling RFEs. My family and me are very grateful for their kind support.”

Case Summary:

Our firm North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) has successfully represented over 25,000 clients in their EB1, EB2, O1, etc. visa petitions. This means that our team has gathered years of experience working with various kinds of clients from all around the world.

The EB1-A or Alien of Extraordinary Ability visa requires applicants to show that their work in any given area of study is of extraordinary nature and thus significant for the country’s progress too. So when we got a client from India who wanted to apply for her EB1-A visa soon after her NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval with us, our team made sure to go through her academic and professional documents and collect updated data for her EB1-A petition. Some of the facts collected were as follows:

  • She is one of the few leading experts on characterizing the performance metrics of sepsis and viral assays for early diagnosis of infection and pathogen discrimination using bioinformatics, and she has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in these areas of study. She is especially well-known for her work on the diagnostic application of Immunosignature non-natural sequence peptide microarrays for Valley Fever.
  • The field has recognized her authority by inviting her to review and evaluate the work of her peers no fewer than 49 times.
  • Her work has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Moreover, her papers have been published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals in her field.
  • That is, her publications have been cited by researchers in at least 19 countries according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of bioinformatics.
  • She has submitted evidence of 152 citations, along with 5 letters from experts in the field attesting to the importance and significance of her contributions.
  • She has 5 letters of recommendation written by experts in her field of expertise, two of which are as follows:

“[The client’s] widespread impact is confirmed by her collective citation count as well. A researcher’s work being admitted by peer-reviewed publications is a common indication of her leadership within her area of study. With over one hundred citations to date, it is undeniable that [the client] has informed the work of many of her peers in the field of bioinformatics with her novel research. Her colleagues have constantly lauded her publications and affirmed their value to the United States and the world.”

“…to interrupt [the client’s] career in the United States would unnecessarily hinder the advancement of the research community. She is well-poised to make further contributions to her field. Her extensive knowledge and experience will serve her well as she develops a scientific career of substantial quality that would contribute toward extending the leadership role that the United States already plays in global science research.”

These factors weighed in during the adjudication process and made her approval possible in just 3 months and 22 days. We are glad to have helped her and we thank her for her trust in us and for retaining us to file her EB1-A and I-485 after her NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval.
