Case Summary:

An associate professor from India contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition. Seeing that EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, he had to garner his employer’s full support before hiring us. Once his employer provided us with the relevant paperwork required to file the petition, our attorneys and support staff immediately got to work putting together a strong EB-1B case for our client. By the time we were ready to file the case, we had accumulated a wealth of information pertaining to our client’s professional and academic background. Here are the selected bits of information that we included in the petition packet:

  • Peer Review Experience: At the time of filing, our client had already participated in 10 reviews of highly acclaimed journals and conferences. This remarkable record showcased his capabilities as a leading researcher in the field of organic chemistry.
  • Citation and Publication Count: Thanks to Google Scholar and other similar references, we determined that our client’s 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles had gathered 150 citations.
  • Research Projects: In order to prove to the USCIS that our client’s work is of inherent value to the United States, we first had to understand every aspect of it. We started by reviewing his research on synthesizing novel compounds with beneficial biological activities. We also established that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding these novel compounds and how they are able to be applied to treating prevalent diseases.
  • Testimonials: To further fortify our client’s EB-1B petition, we included recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field who were familiar with his work. One of them stated, “In short, [client] is a top-notch member of the organic chemistry field whose work has consistently elevated the entire discipline to new heights. It would be extremely challenging to find another researcher who has contributed such significant advancements to the field. With this in mind, it is necessary for [client] to continue his current career trajectory.”

We congratulate our client for securing an EB-1A petition approval and we thank her for choosing to work with our law firm. It was a pleasure helping her with the first step of the green card process and we wish her the best with her continued research in the United States.
