Client’s Testimonial:

“I just checked my case on USCIS, it is approved, thank you very much for your work and effort to make this happen!”

On May 12th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a petitioner in the Field of Microelectronics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Microelectronics

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: May 12th, 2017

Processing Time: 11 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A highly qualified microelectronics expert from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her create and file a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. After months of hard work, we filed the case on her behalf. Due to the swift adjudication guaranteed by Premium Processing (PP) services, we received the approval notice just 11 days later.

While preparing the petition, we concentrated on the following areas:

  1. We began by asking our client to reach out to other experts in her field of microelectronics who were familiar with her studies so that they could provide us with recommendation letters. Our client secured five letters, one of which stated: “[Client]’s contributions to the field of microelectronics thus far have granted her the honorable distinction of being at the vanguard of her field, and she has consistently proven that she is able to perform at a level that is far beyond the ability of her peers.”
  2. With the help of Google Scholar, we were able to ascertain that our client’s 21 peer-reviewed scientific articles had been cited a total of 376 times at the time of filing the petition. We also confirmed that she had and two Chinese patents in her name.
  3. Further, we noted our client’s impressive peer review experience of 10 assessments conducted for a variety of scientific journals.
  4. A vital part of our client’s EB1A petition involved details on her research on semiconductor materials and devices, with a particular emphasis on mercury cadmium telluride. We supplied the USCIS with ample proof that her strong background in material physics and semiconductors has varied applications such as the development of HgCdTe materials with improved performance.

Now that our client’s I-140 petition is approved, she must file an I-485 application to secure a green card. We wish her the best with this final step and thank her for choosing us to represent her EB-1A case. It was a pleasure working with her and we wish her the best as she continues to conduct effective research in the field of microelectronics.
