In order to accomplish this task, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates assisted with the drafting of six recommendation letters on behalf of experts in associated fields of endeavor, to provide testimony associated with this client’s achievements.

In addition to this evidence, it was important to highlight this client’s qualifications established through her advanced degrees in Medical Science and Molecular Genetics completed at top tier universities.
