Success Story: Approved EB1B, EB1-OR (Outstanding Researcher/Professor)after RFE (Request for Evidence) for Post Doctoral Researcher (Only 40 Citations)

Client’s Testimonial:

I cannot thank enough for your diligent and intelligent work that you have devoted to my case. I have encountered 8 attorneys either working on or consulting for my immigration case in the past three years, but none of them has brought such joy that my family and I have received today. I have to say without any bias that you are the best attorney I have ever met. I will absolutely recommend your legal firm to anyone who is seeking a legal assistance in terms of employment based immigration matter.

On 12/06/2012, we received notification of an EB1B, EB1-OR (Outstanding Researcher/Professor) case approval. This case had been unsuccessfully filed by another attorney and the client retained us after receiving an RFE (Request for Evidence).(Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

We at Chen Immigration Law Associates constantly respond to RFE requests for cases filed by other law firms or clients themselves. The fact is, 40% of cases worked on by Chen Immigration Law Associates, were not appropriately filed or handled by other law firms, attorneys, or clients themselves. We accept these cases with knowledge and experience required to fix these problems, and offer the best possible chances of success for our clients.

In this specific case, we were approached with a unique set of challenges. This particular client had previously submitted a petition with another law firm that did not establish enough evidence to be approved. Although cases have varied challenges, it is crucial to establish individually tailored strategies for each and every case in order to provide the fastest, best possible outcomes. For this reason, we often work with candidates whose petitions were submitted by other law firms whose methods may not have presented evidence tailored specifically for their client’s case, and therefore were not accepted. Critically important in this case, the client hoped to remain in the United States to continue their research, as opposed to moving back to China.

For these special cases, we develop unique strategies and identify the methods used by other law firms that were incorrect or ineffective for application in these cases. Specifically for this case, we found that the client had authored and been cited through a relatively low number of articles (40 times). Unfortunately, the previous law firm failed to emphasize the importance of the clients work in regard to the field of Molecular Diagnostics.

First we worked to draft four testimonial letters on behalf of experts in the field. These letters were reviewed, edited, and submitted by the independent recommenders. Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates, highlighted the impact this client’s work has had through the field of Molecular Diagnostics, noting the scholarly recognition reinforced through Google Scholar. Above and beyond this crucial evidentiary support, we emphasized previous decisions under the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) that reinforced the means required to demonstrate the significance of the client’s work cannot be independently determined by the number and volumes of citations associated with the clients research.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, our team at Chen Immigration Law Associates was able to secure approval for this petition on 12/06/2012, roughly two weeks after we submitted the RFE. 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!
