Case Summary:

When an Iranian adjunct professor approached NAILG (North America Immigration Law Group), we noticed the immense significance of his work for the United States and the world. We assured the success of his immigration petition by rigorously studying the information he provided and aided the application by providing additional details in it about his publication record, citations, review experience, etc. in his petition packet:

  • We showcased his publication record which stood at an enormous 200 journal and conference articles resulting from his research work in the field.
  • We showed that his publications have been cited a total of 3,481 times according to the Google Scholar tool, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of applied optimization.
  • In further evidence of his acknowledged expertise in the field, we referred to the 8 peer reviews he conducted for several highly acclaimed journals. Since only the foremost experts in their field are invited to perform this important review work, this frequent review activity further demonstrates our client’s elevated standing in the field.
  • Also, it was inevitable for us to include that his research has been supported by funding from leading agencies, demonstrating the recognized value and importance of his work. One of these fundings includes grants from a leading federally funded Canadian organization supporting critical research in service to society.
  • We finally noted that his expertise and experience have also been recognized through his appointment to leadership positions within the field of endeavor, thus, we incorporated his employment letter confirming his current position and a signed statement from him describing his future research plans.

We are thankful to him for retaining us to present his I-140 NIW case to the USCIS. We are more than confident that he is capable of making immense contributions to his area of expertise in the United States. Therefore, we wish him well in his future endeavors.
