Case Summary:

An Indian senior engineer quality approached North American Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A petition on his behalf. After our initial case evaluation, we determined that his outstanding credentials have qualified him for EB-1A, one of the toughest I-140 categories to obtain approval. We then customized our client’s petition package based on his unique research background, field of expertise, and accomplishments in order to prepare a strong and comprehensive petition.

One of the first things we did after we began working together was selecting suitable recommenders for his petition. Recommenders are important as they provide subjective evidence of the value of our client’s work to the US. We assisted our client to narrow down the list of potential candidates—all of whom are experts in the field of nanoelectronics—and advised him on how to request recommendation letters from those researchers. 6 experts agreed to lend their support, and one of them stated the following in his letter: “[Client] is one of the foremost scientists currently active in the global field of nanoelectronics. His successful investigations thus far have contributed to the study and development of epitaxial graphene for vertical or lateral devices used in a wide array of applications. It is therefore appropriate to predict additional crucial contributions from [client] in the course of his present and future endeavors”.

Also, we discussed the 198 times his research works was cited, the 38 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 arXiv preprint he published, and the 11 times he had assessed the work of his peers. The petition packet also contained summaries of our client’s various projects on high temperature annealing of ion-implanted silicon carbide, the development of novel graphene-based electronics, and the design of gallium nitride vertical devices in the field of nanoelectronics. In addition, our team has also incorporated visual representations to emphasize his achievements in the scientific community in comparison with his peers. Through illustration of effective graphs and charts, we are able to express complex data in a simple format; and meanwhile improve the clarity and effectiveness of our arguments.

Though our client holds strong qualifications, his cased was issued an RFE (Request for Further Evidence). Our experienced legal team then assembled a convincing RFE response to the USCIS, which successfully dealt with all hesitations about our client’s credentials, and his case was approved in 3 months and 4 days. We are pleased that our hard work paid off and that our client is now one big step closer to his green card.
