Our firm’s efficient handling of the case undoubtedly lent a hand in securing petition approval. In this particular case, we highlighted the following:

According to one of the experts: “[Client] is one of the few remote sensing researchers who has consistently made concrete progress in this regard, and I have unwavering confidence in her prolonged work on advancing the techniques so ubiquitous and critical to the international geospatial information sciences and engineering domain….”. These letters advocated for the international influence that our client’s research efforts have attracted.
  1. At the time of filing, our client had already published 13 peer-reviewed journal articles and a book chapter. This strengthened her case to a great extent and reflected the overall significance of her work to the field.
