Case Summary:

A Chinese postdoctoral research fellow in the field of cell biology contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him put together and file a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Although he had strong credentials, he needed our help to present a clear case to the USCIS.

The customized EB1A petition packet which we arranged for our client contained an array of information that highlighted his research achievements. We also included several recommendation letters contributed by other well-known figures in the field. One of the recommenders stated that: “[Client]’s extensive educational and research experience at such prestigious institutions denotes the breadth of his accomplishments in the field.” Another recommender wrote: “[Client] has a distinguished background that helps set him apart from his peers”.These letters supported our argument that our client is an asset to the United States and that his outstanding performance in the field of cell biology has many advantages for the nation. We also incorporated other relevant data such as our client’s citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, the numbers presented were 111 citations, 6 publications, and 41 instances of peer reviews.

The approval of this EB1A petition is yet another example of our outstanding record in helping our clients attain I-140 approval—we have an impressive success rate of over 10,000 approvals. We congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process and we wish him the best as he continues to advance our understanding of the morphogenesis of cancer cell membranes.
