Case Summary:

An assistant research professor from France engaged the services of the North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him in preparing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. After a careful evaluation of our client’s credentials, we affirmed that he was a well-suited candidate for the national interest waiver visa category. When our client signed the contract with us, we immediately began to prepare an influential case on his behalf.

Represented our client’s research:

We noted that he held a Ph.D. in neuroscience, intending his research on better understanding how the brain processes sensory information to advance therapeutic strategies. Consequently, his research in this area is of great importance because it addresses current problems in available treatments for acute and chronic pain. As a long-term health problem, chronic pain not only includes physical symptoms including pain itself, but complicated symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. Given the severity of symptoms and complications associated with chronic pain conditions, finding effective treatments is crucial.

Included Publications Record, Citation Count & Funds Grant:

We ascertained that our client not only completed his research in this field but also had a worthwhile impact on his peers. His 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored and 1 co-first-authored) gained 458 citations. The statistics around the high ranking of publications in which his work has appeared and the citation numbers for his individual publications are evidence of the quality of his work and its value to other experts in the field. Moreover, we noted that some of the foremost experts in their field are invited to perform important review work, and our client had already conducted 5 reviews for highly discerning journals, confirming his exalted standing in the field of neuroscience.

Added Recommendation Letters:

To validate his petition packet further, we advised him to obtain a few recommendation letters, and he was successful to acquire three recommendation letters from fellow specialists in the field supporting his research on these neuroimaging processes for the identification of cortical areas involved in pain processing and neural responses in acute and chronic pain as it represents a key contribution to this critical work and is providing important new pathways to develop interventions for chronic pain.

Achieved the NIW Success:

We are delighted that we yet again convinced USCIS of our client’s significant experience, expertise, and documented record of success in his specialized field that furthers U.S. interests. Successfully, our client received his NIW approval, and we would sincerely thank our client for choosing us to represent his case and permit us to be a part of his success story.
