When filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case, it is imperative to showcase the intrinsic merit, and national scope of each client’s work. With this in consideration, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates are experienced in how to approach each case to increase the chances for approval.

In this specific case, the client was employed in the field of material science, mechanical engineering and solid mechanics. Although these fields may present a unique and valuable set of skills, this client provided an exceptional challenge as they had only 43 citations and were the first author on only 4 of their 13 total publications.

In order to demonstrate that this client’s work met the criteria necessary to be approved for an EB-2 NIW(National Interest Waiver) petition, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates had to strengthen the credentials of this client through a unique strategy.

These  letters provided testimony of the significant impact this client had made to their fields of endeavor.

In addition, in order to document the significance of this client’s work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates utilized analytical software which evidenced this client’s influence throughout the world in the field of material science and mechanical engineering. We then emphasized the broad scope of this client’s work by citing researchers from China, UK, Italy, France, and other prominent Institutions in the United States who were impacted by this client’s investigation in energy absorption.

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 29, 2013.
