Case Summary:

In this specific case, a client was first author of only 4 journal articles and only 8 papers total. Therefore we at Chen Immigration Law Associates had to prove that with only 8 published papers, this client’s NIW petition was in an area of substantial intrinsic merit with national scope and significance to the United States.

In this low citation and low publication case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates believed it was imperative to draft letters on behalf of experts in the field that would attest to the overwhelming impact of our client’s work in the field of engineering focusing on the impressive industrial impact of his work.

In cases like these, in order to prove the magnitude and importance of our client’s research, it is necessary to incorporate strategies tailored specifically for this client. For this particular case, we drafted 9 recommendation letters, which were then reviewed, edited, and signed by the recommenders. Of these 9 recommenders, 6 of them were independent advisors who had not worked with our client; these independent advisors are crucial for cases with low citations because they help to affirm the impact of the client’s work in their field of endeavor.

After sighting these rulings, we investigated the impact of the client’s work to the United States. In this specific case we highlighted the client’s work with mechanical engineering and human computer engineering.

Although our client’s publications were few in number, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates employed our extensive experience and expertise utilizing Google Scholar and other data systems comparing his work to others in the field of Engineering and drew upon his unique discoveries in the behavior of pheromones. We stressed the importance of this client’s unique continual research and development of new technology to improve healthcare.

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 22, 2013.

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!
