Case Summary:

A Michigan-based teaching assistant hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. His years of experience in the field of computer science led to various professional achievements, which made him a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. When he contacted us, we reviewed his credentials to be sure that we could build a strong case for him. Once we confirmed that we could, we initiated an attorney-client relationship.

Our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it advances cutting-edge connected vehicles technologies, which has far-reaching consequences for many aspects of daily life given the prevalence of automobiles. Some of our client’s most noteworthy contributions to the field include developing algorithms and routing protocols for improving the performance of vehicular networks. We also noted that at the time of filing, our client’s work had gathered 124 citations and he had published 14 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (4 of them first-authored) and one book chapter. We also noted the 10 times our client reviewed the work of his peers.

As part of our comprehensive services, we urged our client to gather recommendation letters from other experts working in the field of computer science. We then included these letters into our client’s NIW petition dossier to support his case. According to one of these experts:

“Research into more efficient vehicle routing techniques is extremely beneficial given the importance of efficient transit to our everyday lives. [Client’s] efforts to develop more efficient routing methods are valuable because they reduce transit time and lower congestion by more effectively directing vehicles to their destinations, which they achieve by taking advantage of sophisticated, rationally designed algorithms.”

We congratulate our client for securing not just an NIW petition approval but also for securing I-485. We thank him for choosing our law firm to guide him through the complex green card process and we wish him and his spouse the best as they embark on a new beginning in the United States as permanent residents.
