Case Summary:

In this specific case, we aimed to accrue insurmountable evidence assisting in a swift approval for this client. Considering this client worked in the fields of Polymer Science and Chemical Engineering it was important that the criteria set for this case adequately reflect this client’s value in the scope of national interest.

In order to meet this lofty goal, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked closely with this client and his research in order to prove its intrinsic merit. As this client was currently a doctoral student, it was vital that the contributions that he had already contributed to his field of endeavor be well-reflected by experts in his associated field. To accurately and affectively complete this task, we at Chen Immigration Law drafted six recommendation letters reviewed, edited, and signed by experts in the fields of Polymer Science and Chemical Engineering. Once the letters were signed, they provided substantial testimony of the value of this client’s work in his field and the applicable national interest associated with his ongoing research.

Furthermore, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates gathered evidence to highlight the qualifications of this client based on their published works and the influence of these contributions. Through the use of the top analytic programs, we gathered evidence that this client had written several articles with extremely high impact factors related to his field of endeavor. Additionally, this client’s published works had been referenced a total of 55 times in numerous scholarly journals and had been cited at least 90 times. Considering this significant number of citations and recognition from the scientific community regarding this client’s published works, it was important to emphasize his qualifications associated with this recognition.

Reinforcing the merit associated with this client’s research, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked diligently to research all applicable AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) decisions that could strengthen the credentials of this client. While researching these cases we looked for specific cases where petitioners had less significant credentials than this client and still received favorable rulings. Following the citation of these cases, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates took additional time to gather evidence supporting a favorable ruling on this case, highlighting how the national interest would be adversely impacted if this client were forced to acquire a labor certificate.

In order to provide this evidence, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates made note of this client’s in-depth understanding of methods of grapheme synthesis, and polymer synthesis, processing, and analysis, in addition to his high level of proficiency that sets him apart from his peers. Utilizing the testimony from the six recommendation letters, we reinforced the impact this client’s research will have on the fields of polymer science and chemical engineering.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work towards the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on December 17th, 2012.

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!
