Case Summary:

“[The client] has made significant breakthroughs in this area, as the processes that he has created have proven effective for obtaining complex-shaped metal products that are both highly pure and very dense. By making such contributions, he has shown that he is a researcher of national importance.”

These are testimonials issued in support of our client from China, a research engineer in mechanical engineering who needed our help filing his EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) application. He is an established name in additive manufacturing in the field of mechanical engineering. This is why our job of proving his extraordinary ability in the area was relatively easy. Our team made use of his updated CVs, transcripts, and certificates to collect all relevant information. So the petition packet contained the following information along with 5 letters of recommendation:

  • The client’s work has been circulated through 10 peer-reviewed journal articles and 4 peer-reviewed conference papers, many of which rank among the most-cited papers in the field.
  • The client has conducted at least 40 reviews for journals of repute in his field of interest.
  • His publications have been cited 429 times in 35 countries around the world making him in the top 1% of the most cited authors in the field.

In order to make these facts stand out, we made use of visualizations such as charts and maps. So when the USCIS approved his case we were ecstatic. We thank our client for his trust in us and for retaining us to file his NIW petition as well. NAILG wishes him the best of luck in all future endeavors.
