Case Summary:

With an M.D., a research scientist intending to advance in the field of neurology approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. After he reached out to us, we started examining his credentials closely. Once we confirmed that we could lead him to NIW success, our team accumulated an array of important information pertaining to his professional accomplishments. Thus, we listed the following key points that paved the way for his case approval.

  • Research Description – Our client’s work focused on the causes and symptoms of neurological disorders to improve their diagnosis and treatment. We concluded that his research is of great importance because it aids in the development of effective therapies for epilepsy. Therefore, his work has significant implications for the management and treatment of this chronic condition which serves well to the interests of the United States.
  • Publication & Citation Count – We detailed our client’s remarkable record of 49 peer-reviewed journal articles (9 of them first-authored), 21 conference abstracts (8 of them first-authored), and 1 book chapter, which had accumulated 247 citations from the other leading researchers in the field. His work has been published in no fewer than 3 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of neurology.
  • Peer Review Experience – We noted, our client has built an impressive record of success, and he had already conducted 9 peer reviews to date for elite journals in the field as a peer reviewer. This exceptional record implies his ability as a leading researcher in the field of neurology.

Our client’s research has also been supported by funding from leading agencies, and this funding includes grants from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The grants that he has gained from this organization point to the exceptional quality of his work and research skills.

  • Testimonials– To strengthen our client’s EB-2 petition further, we also included four of his obtained recommendation letters from other experts in the field. Below is the statement excerpted from one of the letters:

“It is clear from this utilization of his work that [client] has produced substantial results in his research on post-traumatic epilepsy that has impacted the research of his peers.”

Overall, we were able to help our client in achieving the NIW approval within 7 months and 18 days. Even better that he got his I-485 application approved just after 3 months of his I-140 petition approval. We thank our client for trusting us with both of his NIW and I-485 cases. Also, we wish him the best of luck as he continues to progress in the field of neurology.
