On December 18th, 2012, we received another Approval for a EB1A (Aliens of Extraordinary Ability) case ONLY 9 Days after initial filing. (Approval Notice)

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Material Science Engineer

Case Summary:

EB1a (Aliens of Extraordinary Ability) petitions require a significant amount of evidence, as each case must prove that the candidate has made extensive contributions to their field of endeavor, which can be considered “extraordinary.”

Because these cases require such a meticulous gathering of evidence, it is recommended that candidates do not attempt to file on their own. Nearly 40% of our business at Chen Immigration Law Associates stems from petitions filed incorrectly by other law firms or by the petitioners themselves.

In this specific case, the client had a particularly strong case including a high citation count and a significant amount of peer-reviewed published journals. Although this case was strong, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates meticulously gathered evidence to present this case in the best way possible for a swift decision.

With this in consideration, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates researched applicable AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) rulings that provided further support for this client’s case. Additionally, we procured 10 recommendation letters from experts in the field of Material Sciences and Engineering to reinforce the significant contributions this client had made on these fields.

With a solid support established through these letters we highlighted the largest contributions this client had made to his perspective fields and established his influence through the citation of each piece of evidence.

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 December 18th, 2012, just 9 days after its 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!
