Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) has successfully attained over 16,000 I-140 immigration petitions. Our sterling reputation as a law firm that offers customized I-140 petitions and unprecedented insight into how the USCIS adjudicates cases are reasons why clients from all over the world seek our help for their green cards. In this case, a postdoctoral fellow from China hired us to help her with the first step in the green card process: filing an I-140 petition under the EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) category.

Based on her research background and professional achievements, we determined that we would focus on her publication record, citation count, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 9 journal articles (7 of them first-authored), 205 citations and 31 instances of peer review experience. Her specialized research focuses on plant transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation through the analysis of gene expression data. We emphasized that her research in this field is of great importance because it has applications in plant genetic engineering, a field that has undergone rapid development in the last 50 years due to a greater understanding of DNA.

Experts in the field have provided letters of support, which we included in the petition packet, confirming our client’s history of successful research, as evidenced by her publication and citation record that indicates a demonstrated impact on the field and that these accomplishments have well positioned her to continue advancing the field.

We congratulate our client on overcoming this great hurdle, and we wish her the best as she continues to carry out impactful research in the United States. Satisfied with our meticulous service, our client opted to continue working with us on her I-140 EB-1A petition. We thank her again for trusting us and look forward to receiving her EB-1A approval.
