Case Summary:

EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions often present a unique set of challenges. In this particular case, the petitioner had both a low number of published articles and a low citation count. In these sort of cases, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates work directly with the client in order to develop the best possible strategies for each approval.

In order to evidence this case with so few articles and limited citations, we drafted six recommendation letters that were reviewed, edited, and signed by the client’s recommenders. Considering the USCIS places much more weight and emphasis on independent recommenders, we drafted four out of the six recommendation letters to be independent letters of recommendation.

In addition, in order to demonstrate that the client’s work was national in scope, we stressed the prestigious researchers and prominent institutions around the world that were applying this client’s work. Furthermore, in the strategy that we developed for this client’s petition, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates emphasized the importance surrounding this client’s individual research associated with governmental funding through highlighting this client’s work that was implemented in a five year $50 million Department of Homeland Security contract.

Additionally, we used analytical software to validate this client’s influence in high impact journals. With this information, we argued that this client’s work was significant in computational neuroanatomy as compared to his peers. In conclusion, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates cited relevant AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) decisions that helped improve the credentials of our client based on previous cases that received favorable rulings with less impressive qualifications.

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.

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!
