Texas Service Center (TSC) found our client, a research fellow, to be a deserving candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). The fact that his work aids the United States in understanding the pathogenesis, transmission, and treatment of malaria infections 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 understanding the molecular biology of blood-borne pathogens and parasites in order to treat malaria.
- Citation Count and Publication: Our client’s extensive experience in the field of microbiology had led to the publication of 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter, all of which had been cited a total of 214 times when we filed the case.
- Peer Review Service: To further illustrate our client’s leadership role in the field, we noted the 22 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: “[Client’s] work is a key part of the mission stated by the federal government and the WHO, to reduce, eradicate, and ultimately eliminate this debilitating disease. In order for the U.S. to maintain its lead in malaria research, [client] must continue his research here.” The customized EB-1A petition packet which we arranged for our client also included figures and a customized citation map 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.
Although we presented a strong case to the USCIS, our client’s petition was issued a Request For Evidence (RFE). With our experience of securing over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we put together a solid response which eventually led to the case approval. His case was approved by the USCIS in 1 year and 4 months, we congratulate our client for securing an EB-1A petition approval. We thank him for choosing our law firm to represent his EB-1A case. It was a pleasure helping him with the first step of the green card process and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of microbiology.
