Case Summary:

A gifted research scientist from China working in the field of computational chemistry approached North America Immigration Law Group ( for help with his green card petition. After evaluating our client’s credentials, we agreed that he qualified for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Upon receiving the signed contract from our client, we immediately got to work putting together a strong case.

Amongst other things, our EB-1A petition packet contained recommendation letters provided by other influential experts in our client’s field of computational chemistry. These letters furnished the USCIS with additional evidence that our client’s work is indispensable to the United States. Here are several quotes that helped us strengthen this claim:

 “[Client] is an exceptionally talented researcher with extraordinary abilities. His twenty publications have attracted world-wide recognition which is seen in the large number of citations they have received in a relatively short time: 163 as of the date of this letter. These records demonstrate the important contributions [Client] has made to the field of computational design of functional organic molecules.”

  • At the time of filing, our client had published 20 scientific articles and his work had collected nearly 200 citations. We used this to prove that his insights help other researchers in the field advance their research.

“…Considering the fact that review activities for such esteemed journals are reserved for only the most accredited authorities in the field, [Client’s] frequent participation is a clear indication that he is held in particularly high esteem.”

  • This quote supports our argument that our client has extensive experience in the field, making him a suitable candidate to review the work of his peers. When we filed the case, our client had already conducted 60 peer reviews for a myriad of scientific journals.

In short, our meticulous efforts coupled with our client’s strong qualifications lent a hand in the successful presentation of this EB1A case. Because our client selected to file his petition under Premium Processing, he received an approval from the USCIS merely a week after we filed the case on his behalf. We congratulate our client on this milestone, and we wish him the best as he files his I-485 application, the final step in the green card process.
