Case Summary:

We are thrilled to be a part of this success story, as our client, an instructional assistant professor from Mexico working in the field of electrical engineering secured his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval 11 months after we filed his case. At the time he hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him file the NIW petition, his work and research had 68 citations from the 2 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored), the 13 conference articles (10 of them first-authored), and 1 book (first-authored) he published in some of the leading journals and conferences in the field of electrical engineering, reflecting his peers’ recognition of the value of this research.

Our incredibly adapting team members helped him complete the I-140 process by gathering the most relevant information to be put in his petition packet:

  • We established that his research focuses on developing new controller designs using his expertise in system stability and control systems, which seems to be of great importance as it improves control systems for numerous applications.
  • We noted that the control systems are a major factor in the development and advancement of modern technology. Nearly every aspect of daily life is impacted by control systems to some degree. Thus, his proposed research of developing new controller designs ensures the optimal performance of system applications in industrial processes and renewable energy operations, therefore displaying both substantial merit and national importance.
  • Attributable to his knowledge and expertise in the field, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for elite journals in the field and has completed at least 2 peer reviews to date. Since only the respected researchers in the field are invited to assess the work of their peers, it is evident that our client is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.

As we are well versed in the intricacies of immigration law, our aim was to prove our client’s professional and educational background extraordinarily for his further case adjudication. We made sure that every aspect of his petition preparation was done efficiently and on time. Above all, our team collaborated with him and supported him thoroughly in writing excellent letters of support. Two fellow experts were ready to sign his recommendation letters, corroborating that his research holds significant value for the United States industrial and renewable energy sectors.

We are happy that our client chose our law firm to represent his I-140 NIW petition to the USCIS and also retained us for composing his I-485 application to get him the green card successfully. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
