Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved for Research & Development Manager in Texas in the Field of Agricultural Science


Client’s Testimonial:


It is my privilege to write this testimonial. As an academician with an unending crunch of time, preparing an effective petition for justifying as an ideal candidate for “NIW” seemed a daunting task. The exemplary professional and tailored approach by the personnel at Chen and Associates made the daunting task look simple without any hassles. Another unique attribute: even until now (writing this testimonial), the professional and timely email responses by the team at Chen and Associates was such that not even once I felt there was a need to talk with them over the phone. The secure website is “one-stop-shop” for all the needs and it made things so much organized. The rapid responses to my questions were equally appreciated. I would have no doubt in my mind to extend my recommendation of Chen and Associates to all my colleagues and friends who are looking forward to apply for a green card. Bottom line, they are simply the best!

Case Summary:

The client that North America Immigration Law had the opportunity to work with in this case was a research & development manager from India. His work has focused specifically on deriving and characterizing bioactive compounds from fruits. We successfully demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would benefit those in his field, as well as the citizens of the United States at large. In order for our client’s case to be successful, we submitted extensive documentation proving his highly significant contributions to his field, including 11 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them first-authored) and numerous conference papers. His publications had been cited at least 83 times at the time we filed the case; nearly all of the citations were by independent researchers around the world, demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field.  The importance of his work was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, “I can conclusively state that this field benefits significantly from [client’s] scientific contributions. His involvements have moved scientists towards creating ways to treat and prevent cancer based on the cancer preventive properties of fruits. …My firm belief is that [client] is a scientist of impressive skill whose research is effectively advancing the health and medical field by reducing the risk of and preventing different infections and diseases in the US” Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW petition was approved in 5 months and 3 days.
