Case Summary:

It is important to denote that more than 40% of all cases handled by Chen Immigration Law Associates are responses to RFEs (Request for Evidence) or Denials that were previously filed by other law firms or individuals themselves.

In regard to these cases, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates have been able to secure approval for nearly all of our clients who originally filed unsuccessfully filed with other law firms. The reason for our high success rates surrounding these cases is simple, we organize evidence and support for each petition in accordance with the needs for each particular case. Instead of simply using a template and dropping evidence and exhibits for a swift turnover, Chen Immigration Law Associates (1) takes the time to work with each client to strengthen their credentials, (2) drafts recommendation letters on behalf of experts in their associated fields, and (3) researches applicable case rulings and AAO decisions that best reinforce each client’s case.

This specific case is an excellent example of what the correct organization of evidence and mounting evidentiary support will lend to the swiftness of the USCIS rulings. As this client was an Assistant Professor at a relatively small university, it was important to establish that his position was tenure-tracked, he had made significant contributions to the field of Oncology and Hematology, and the importance surrounding these contributions was significant enough to mark him as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability. Although possessing “extraordinary ability” may seem like a relatively subjective qualification, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates have identified all the necessary evidence required for substantiating that a client possesses these abilities.

Most importantly, considering this client had spent a significant portion of his career focusing on Cancer Research through Oncology and Hematology, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates emphasized the contributions this client had made to this extremely important field through the citation of six recommendation letters that we drafted on behalf of experts in the field for review, edit, and signing. These letters helped connect the significant importance surrounding this client’s contributions to the field of Cancer Research, and reaffirmed the requirement for his continual work in his field of endeavor.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on January 3rd, 2013, just 4 days after its original filing.

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!
