Case Summary:

An assistant professor from Turkey hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client is an expert in the field of psychology who has worked tirelessly on human behavior and attitudes in organizations. To convince the USCIS of the national importance of his work, we adopted the line of argument that his research significantly enhances the efficiency and performance of employees. Therefore, his expertise in this area is of inherent benefit to a plethora of organizations across the nation and around the world. We worked diligently to prove that our client’s findings are directly linked to job performance and how it naturally benefits the United States workforce and economy.

Among other things, we listed the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 Letter to the Editor (first-authored) published by our client. We also listed the 31 times his work was cited by other researchers in the field. It is unquestionable that our client is highly regarded in his field. We also included the 7 times he judged the work of his peers.

Our client’s NIW petition was further strengthened by 6 recommendation letters that were signed by other notable researchers and experts in the field. One of these recommenders recognized our client as “It is no overstatement to say that [client] has unique and uncommonly strong insight into how the employment hierarchy and responsibility chain of a government agency should be formed to reach maximum performance. As a result, he is clearly a national asset within the field.”

Although our client had a strong case, the USCIS issued an RFE to which we responded promptly and successfully dealt with the hurdles. We truly appreciate our client for trusting us with the preparation of his NIW case and for giving us an opportunity to file the I-485 applications for him and his family. We wish him the best as he continues to work in the United States.
