Case Summary:

The client that North America Immigration Law Group ( had the opportunity to work with in this case was a Chinese PhD candidate and researcher in the field of Epidemiology. With our unprecedented insight into what the USCIS is looking for when adjudicating petitions, we are able to provide convincing argument and thorough documentation to the immigration officers, and his NIW petition was approved in less than 7 months.

Our client’s work had focused specifically on epidemiology of chronic conditions like cardiovascular diseases as well as psychiatric symptom prognosis and healthcare resource utilization for critically ill patients. In order for our client’s case to be successful, we submitted extensive documentation proving his highly significant contributions to his field, including 16 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them are first and co-first-authored). His publications have been cited a total of 202 times at the time we filed the case; nearly all of the citations were by independent researchers around the world, demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field.

In addition, we have assisted our client in selecting the list of recommenders to affirm his contributions, and the importance of his work was confirmed in the following quote from one of the recommenders, “[Client] has been highly effective in his field of research, which is reflected in part by the number of research projects that he has completed and disseminated to date. Distinguished journals, including (…) have published his research, and altogether he has produced 17 peer-reviewed articles to date. Equally impressive is the positive reception that [client]’s peers have accorded his publications.”

With our rigorous methods of customizing our client’s petition, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. We successfully demonstrated that his continued engagement in the field would greatly benefit the development of his field, as well as the citizens of the United States at large. We are pleased to list him as one of our 12,000 approved EB-1A, EB-1B and EB-2 NIW cases.
