Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in civil engineering and many years of experience leading insightful research, undoubtedly our client can continue advancing in the field of civil engineering. When he approached us to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we looked at more than just his doctoral degree before accepting to prepare his case. After assessing his credentials, we confirmed to countersign the retainer agreement and began filing a solid petition on our client’s behalf by demonstrating his meticulous testimonies.

Here are some of the key attributes we chose to focus on in his EB-1A petition:

  • We noted that his findings have had an exceptional impact on the civil engineering field, as evidenced by his citation record. His publications have garnered 319 citations, reflecting the prime quality and efficiency of his efforts.
  • We also detailed the 29 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 patent, all of which have consistently been published in top-ranked journals, proving that his work has been recognized as some of the best in the field.
  • Further, we listed the remarkable 140 times our client evaluated the work of his fellow peers. Only the top-level experts in the field are invited to assess the work of others, our client’s noteworthy peer-review record relays his reputation as an extraordinary researcher.
  • Arguably one of the most essential components of our client’s EB1A case was related to his research on developing sustainable infrastructure materials to address some of the country’s most pressing issues in leveraging sustainable materials and technologies such as asphalt pavement technology for use in revitalizing the U.S. transportation infrastructure.
  • To solidify his case further, we included recommendation letters signed by several other experts in the field, one of whom stated that:

“It is this incalculable merit that lends urgency to the work of [our client], a pioneer and leader in the field of civil engineering whose investigation of the use of geopolymer materials in pavement and other applications has notably advanced innovation in infrastructure.”

We are delighted that our vigilance paid off, and our client achieved his EB-1A approval in just 5 months, thanks to premium processing service. We thank him for trusting us in managing his I-140 application. We wish him all the best as he continues to progress in the field of civil engineering.
