Case Summary:

Texas Service Center (TSC) found our client, an Indian postdoctoral fellow, to be a deserving candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). The fact that his work aids the United States in understanding liver cancer undoubtedly paved the way for EB-1A approval. Before establishing an attorney-client relationship, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) carefully studied our client’s credentials to determine his veracity. Once we were assured that his credentials qualified him for EB-1A, we counter-signed the retainer agreement and got to work building his case. Here are some of the key points we focused on:

  • Research Details: In order to prove that our client’s work is important to the United States, we first had to account for and understand his research focus. Largely thanks to the comprehensive research summary which he provided us, we determined that his work is focused on analyzing the mechanisms of the liver. We established that his findings have an enormous impact on bioanalytical chemistry, the medical industry, and pharmaceutical development.
  • Citation Count and Publication: Our client’s extensive experience in the field of bioanalytical chemistry had led to the publication of 36 peer-reviewed journal articles, 1 pre-print article, 1 peer-reviewed conference article, and 1 book, all of which had been cited a total of 325 times when we filed the case.
  • Peer Review Service: To further illustrate our client’s leadership role in the field, we noted the 20 times he had conducted peer review for various high-impact scientific journals.
  • Additional Evidence: Like any legal case, we had to present evidence to support our argument that our client deserved to get one step closer to a green card. We did this by urging our client to collect recommendation letters from a handful of his peers. These letters confirmed the value of our client’s work to the US and contained statements such as: “In no uncertain terms, the United States drug review and discovery system is stymied by underdeveloped drug analysis approaches. To this end, I must uphold the value of [client’s] presence in the United States. His work leverages novel methods of drug analysis to accelerate the rate at which many drug categories are testable. [Client’s] expertise here is a direct answer to a significant problem in the United States medical industry, which is sufficient reason to support his work.” The customized EB-1A petition packet which we arranged for our client also included graphs and figures to indicate that our client’s publications have been cited at a much higher rate than those of other researchers in the field, distinguishing him from his peers.

To our surprise, his case was approved by the USCIS in just 3 months and 22 days without Premium Processing (PP). We congratulate our client for securing an EB-1A petition approval and we thank him for choosing to work with our law firm. It was a pleasure helping him with the first step of the green card process and we thank him for retaining us for his NIW petition too.
