Case Summary:

On January 31, 2013, we received another approval for an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) that we filed on behalf of an Engineer with experience in Photonics. National Interest Waiver cases require certain criteria to be met and it is vital that each case be handled by experienced professions in order to facilitate the best evidenced case and increase the chance for approval. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates view each client’s case as unique and we do our best to meet each client’s specific needs in preparing their petition.

In this particular case, the major challenge presented concerned the number of first-authored publications this client had published. In order to overcome the lack of first-authored publications and low citations, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked directly with this client in order to create the best possible strategy for their case.

With this in consideration, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted nine recommendation letters on behalf of experts in several applicable fields. These recommendation letters were then reviewed, edited and signed by these experts indicating the significant influence and impact of this client in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Because Independent recommenders, those who do not know the client personally, hold more weight with the USCIS; four of the nine drafted recommendation letters were written on behalf of independent experts.

In addition, it was imperative to demonstrate that although this client was not the sole author of many of his publications, his part was substantial, and his work was broad in scope. In order to provide this evidence, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates used analytical software to evidence the importance of this client’s work in ultrahigh photocurrent. Furthermore, we cited the high-impact journal ratings this client received and how scientists from around the world, spanning from Taiwan to Europe to the United States were influenced by his work.

Moreover, since government supported programs provide inherent evidence of national significance, we cited the numerous government funded projects of which this client’s work was a vital part.

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 31, 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!
