Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) received an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) evaluation request from a California-based fellow in the field of cardiology. After closely analyzing his credentials and the societal impact of his research, we decided that we could take up his case. His research studies have provided significant breakthroughs in understanding heart disease and coronary artery disease. Additionally, his extensive experience in coronary interventions and treating cardiovascular diseases has given a new dimension to the study and diagnosis of vascular complications.

While preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we focused on showcasing his core strengths and competitive position in the scientific community. In order to demonstrate the influence of his work, we highlighted his outstanding achievements, including his 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles (at the time of filing) and at least 15 peer-reviews he had conducted for high-impact scientific journals. Additionally, we noted his citation record— which amounts to at least 135 citations overall.

In order to further uphold our client’s petition, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by several industry experts. This is what one of his recommenders had to say about him and his work: “[Client] is a well-rounded and impactful cardiologist whose work has promoted ongoing progress in cardiovascular disease research in the United States”.

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP) as well as the clear presentation and effective coordination showcased by our team, we were able to help our client obtain an EB1A petition approval in just 12 days. Not long after his EB1A was approved, we filed I-485 applications for our client and his spouse and secured approvals from the USCIS. We congratulate them for obtaining their green cards and we wish them the very best as they embark on new beginnings in the United States.
