Case Summary:

The dual approval of this client’s EBIA and EB2-NIW petitions confirms North America Immigration Law Group –’ success rate and highlights our excellent ability to tailor petitions that best represent our clients. This particular client hailed from India with a Ph.D. in Chemistry. His impressive research projects in the United States included amine-based CO2 sequestration, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through non-fossil fuel resources like biomass, geothermal, solar, wind, and tidal energies, hydrogen fuel cell development as a future source of clean energy, and the generation of other clean fuels from biomass to reduce U.S. dependence on imported fossil fuels. This client displayed great prowess in leading innovative projects aimed at combating climate change, though his 26 publications had received just 80 citations. To bolster this client’s case, we submitted thorough evidence of his patents, several strong independent references, and letters of thanks from conferences at which he presented and journals he edited. Thus North America Immigration Law Group – amply demonstrated this client’s research to be original and significant, internationally recognized, and nationally applicable. Though we filed an NIW in addition to the EB1A as a backup, the EB1A petition was approved in under a month! A key strategy was stressing the international ramifications of this client’s research and its multifaceted applications in other scientific capacities. One of his recommenders stated, “…green energy and technology researchers take a special interest in [Client]’s work, but other areas of chemistry benefit as well. His new use of supported amines helps other green energy chemists as they develop CO2 capture methods, since it is such a radical departure from conventional methods. Industrial chemists can use his research, since they specialize in using chemistry in industrial application or to solve industrial problems, which is precisely what the amine adsorbent does. Chemical engineers, who will likely be the ones to design and implement the adsorbent support materials, can also thus benefit.” North America Immigration Law Group – successfully argued this client’s contributions to be extraordinary in scope and meritorious of a green card.
