 I am not sure whether the 40 days (from our first day to sign the contract to today the 140 get approved) is the shortest time that you ever handled for your clients before, but your professional efficient and patient to answer my questions are really impress me a lot. 

This petition was filed on November 26th 2012 and got approved December 5th 2012. (Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

First of all, we are glad to share that the client had his approval notice in his hand only within 40 days after signing a contract with us. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates always work efficiently and effectively, producing high quality petitions within the shortest time to make sure our clients can get their approval notices within the shortest time.

In this specific case, we were approached with scientist, specializing in Optics and Nanotechnology, with a diverse set of skills and expertise. Considering this client had met the plain language of law of four required criteria for EB1A (EB1-EA), and had over 100 citations, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates created a strategy for the fastest application process ensuring the best possible chances for approval.

As this client had varied expertise in fields not directly correlated with his current research endeavors, we felt it best to emphasize the previous work completed and its importance to developing technologies within the client’s expertise. This evidence helped highlight the importance of sustained and continual residence in the United States.

Additionally, it is important to emphasize that even though the client had published a significant amount of work, the applicability of this research to specific fields was limited.  In this case, it is likely that the criterion of “original contribution with major significance” be challenged. In order to accentuate this client’s research to a select field and make sure no RFE is issued, we developed a unique strategy; providing assistance to this client, we helped them secure a collection of referrals from both national and international experts in associated fields. In addition to this, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted numerous letters for potential recommenders that helped ascertain the important contributions that had been highlighted by the client’s research and his unique and crucial skillset for the sustained advancement of Optics and Nanotechnology. These letters helped identify the individual contributions of the client, applied to the fields we designated as the most important to emphasize.

Narrowing the scope of research, while correctly articulating the demand and importance for its continuation, and presenting the according evidence for this case, our team at Chen Immigration Law Associates was able to secure approval for this petition on December 5th, merely nine days following its submission.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
