Case Summary:

In this case, our client has already received NIW approval with our help back in 2018. However, in order to be able to file the I-485 (adjustment of status) as soon as possible, our client reached out to North America Immigration Law Group ( again to evaluate whether he was a good fit for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Exactly 9 months and 28 days after we filed the petition on his behalf, the USCIS granted the case approval.

Our client is an expert in the field of mechanical engineering. His specialized research has focused on the design and optimization of manufacturing technology in an attempt to effectively clear machining contaminants from automotive engines. He has made original contributions of major significance to the field, including but not limited to his work on dry-etch selectivity within the semiconductor industry. This work has had an enormous impact on the field of mechanical engineering as well as both the automotive and semiconductor industries.

Since EB-1A is one of the toughest I-140 categories, we made sure to present our client’s various achievements in a clear and concise manner. To begin with, we listed his publications as evidence of his research success-5 peer-reviewed journal articles, 4 conference articles, 5 patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, two book chapters, one technical brief, and one book volume. Moreover, his work has been cited 432 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles and patent publications by the time when we were ready to file the petition. He has also been invited by highly distinguished journals to perform peer review work. So far, he has conducted at least 11 reviews. All the information was carefully displayed in the customized petition to persuade the USCIS that our client qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability and that his entry will benefit the United States.

Four letters of recommendation signed by noted experts in the field were incorporated into the petition packet to further support our client’s petition. The following excerpt is how one of the recommenders describes our client’s work: “[Client]’s landmark work on enhancing the correctness of tool wear predictions has contributed considerably to manufacturing automation, which is of great importance to the U.S. manufacturing sector and contributes to U.S. economic prosperity. It is therefore in the economic interests of the United States to continue supporting [client]s work. Moreover, the continued support of [client]’s work helps the United States maintain its competitiveness in the realm of global manufacturing.”

We are pleased to see that our experience of securing over 15,000 I-140 approvals has once again convinced the USCIS to approve our client’s case. We thank our client for trusting us and we wish him the best as he continues to carry out impactful research in the United States.
