Case Summary:

Our client is a Ph.D. holder in engineering who is a postdoctoral fellow. He approached the North America Immigration Law Group because he knew that our law firm would help him secure his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. According to our services, we suggested him to send more evidence in addition to his recommendation letters to bolster this case. Consequently, after looking over his credentials, we were genuinely impressed and decided to take his case to USCIS for further adjudication.

Following the filing of his I-140 NIW petition, our client hired us to assist with the filing of an additional I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa petition. Without hesitation, we agreed to draft another petition on his behalf. We also outlined special arrangements in each case and included the following information:

One of the foremost aspects we noted was his research on multiscale modeling of advanced materials, addressing some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, and artificial intelligence. Therefore, his unique and expansive expertise has enabled him to contribute significantly to the field of mechanical engineering, extending the reasonable expectation that he will continue to do so within the United States.

Also, we discussed the 282 citations accumulated from 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 first-authored and 3 co-first-authored) and 1 preprint, he published in international journals. Not only has he effectively finished and published the findings of his field research, but his discoveries have also influenced his fellow peers. In other words, his publications have been cited by researchers in at least 32 countries, have mentioned his works shows how well-known and trusted he is in the field of mechanical engineering.

Besides, he has conducted at least 27 reviews to date, affirming his real and active involvement in evaluating the work of other experts in the field of mechanical engineering.

Moreover, his extraordinary ability in the field is additionally reflected by his significant contributions to research funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Department of Energy (DOE), and the National Science Foundation (NSF), all of which are agencies of the United States government.

Considering all the mentioned facts above, we were certain that our client has an impressive background and a strong record of past achievements. His unique knowledge is relevant to his current and future work, indicating that he qualifies as an alien of extraordinary ability and that his entry will substantially benefit the United States. We are thrilled to have managed both his I-140 petitions and to have been a part of his success story since he obtained his I-140 NIW and EB-1A approvals just two months apart. Thanks to the Premium Processing service upgrade for his NIW and EB1A cases, which were adjudicated in just four days, and seven days respectively. Our team’s efforts and diligence in both of our client’s cases paid off well. We congratulate him as he advances in his field of expertise.
