General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and many years of experience conducting insightful research, there is no doubt that our client possesses the ability to continue progressing the field of mechanical engineering. When he approached us to build and file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf, we looked at more than just his doctoral degree before agreeing to take on his case. After evaluating his credentials, we confirmed that we could lead him to EB1A victory and proceeded to countersign the retainer agreement.

In preparing our client’s EB1A petition, these are some of the key points we chose to focus on:

  • We noted the 111 times his work was cited by dependent and independent researchers. This indicated the major significance of his findings to other mechanical engineers around the world.
  • We also detailed the 19 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 patent, all of which appeared in well-known journals.
  • Further, we list the impressive 100 times our client assessed the work of his fellow peers. As only the best in the field are invited to judge the work of others, our client’s notable peer review record spoke volumes of his respected status as an extraordinary researcher.
  • Arguably one of the most important elements of our client’s EB1A petition dossier was related to his research on improving, developing, and testing technology. After careful analysis, we concluded that our client’s efforts address some of the country’s most pressing issues in understanding how to produce reliable and effective technologies for oil and gas drilling as well as other industries.
  • Furthermore, our client’s work has been downloaded a total of 3,760 times according to ResearchGate. It can therefore be objectively corroborated that he has made significant original contributions documented by his publications, as his achievements have been widely recognized and relied upon in the field of mechanical engineering.
  • To further fortify our client’s petition, we included recommendation letters signed by several other experts in the field, one of whom stated that “As such, the benefits of [client’s] research to the United States are readily apparent. Bearing in mind the speed with which [client’s] work has gained commercial application and his continual successes in this area, it is apparent that he is deserving of being allowed to continue to carry out his research uninterrupted.”

We are pleased that our hard work paid off and that our client is now one big step closer to green card success. We thank him for choosing us to represent his EB1A case and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of mechanical engineering.
