Success Stories: We Helped an Associate Nephrologist From India in the Field of Nephrology to Secure an EB-1A


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for all the help in securing EB1A approval for my case.”

On February 13th, 2020, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Associate Nephrologist in the Field of Nephrology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Nephrology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Nephrologist

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: February 13th, 2020

Processing Time: 6 months and 20 days (PP requested)

Case Summary:

Texas Service Center (TSC) found our client, an Indian associate nephrologist, to be a deserving candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). The fact that her work aids the United States in understanding the effects of heparin and insulin on patients with hypertriglyceridemia-and her work on understanding health literacy in home dialysis patients, 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 her veracity. Once we were assured that her credentials qualified her for EB-1A, we counter-signed the retainer agreement and got to work building her 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 her research focus. Largely thanks to the comprehensive research summary which she provided us, we determined that her work is focused on the management of dialysis and the treatment of complex, chronic kidney diseases, as well as diseases affecting the liver, pancreas, and other organs simultaneously. We established that her findings are essential to the nation as they provide a deeper understanding of the successful treatment of these pervasive and often debilitating health conditions.
  • Citation Count and Publication: Our client’s extensive experience in the field of nephrology had led to the publication of 8 peer-reviewed journal articles, all of which had been cited a total of 140 times when we filed the case.
  • Peer Review Service: To further illustrate our client’s leadership role in the field, we noted the 14 times she 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 her peers. These letters confirmed the value of our client’s work to the US and contained statements such as: “[Client’s] work had provided sound evidence that the Rapid Estimate of Adult Literacy in Medicine questionnaire was viable approach to assessing medical knowledge, and these experts have recommended this approach as a reliable method for assessing health literacy for tailoring their syllabus. These guidelines therefore demonstrate that [client’s] work has been directly applied by major medical society to the development of improved peritoneal care.” The customized EB-1A petition packet which we arranged for our client also included graphs and data to indicate that our client’s publications have been cited at a much higher rate than those of other researchers in the field, distinguishing her from her peers.

Her case was approved by the USCIS in 6 months and 20 days, after our client decided to choose Premium Processing (PP) over regular processing. We congratulate our client for securing an EB-1A petition approval and we thank her for choosing to work with our law firm. It was a pleasure helping her with the first step of the green card process and we thank her for retaining us for her I-485 applications.
