Case Summary:

Nearly 6 months after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a German resident physician, the USCIS granted their approval. With an M.D. and extensive experience specializing in internal medicine, our client met the national interest waiver requirements set by Matter of Dhanasar.

We have successfully handled over 10,000 I-140 cases and have unparalleled insight into USCIS adjudication trends. Not just that, we have ample knowledge when it comes to building customized petitions. No matter how unique a client’s work is, we have very likely successfully petitioned similar cases in the past, which increases the odds of securing petition approval.

We applied our experience to our client’s case and highlighted his work identifying new therapeutic targets and paradigms to protect against kidney disease. Further, we emphasized that our client is a remarkable medical researcher whose findings are important to the American medical sector.

To back up our argument, we listed the 2 times he had judged the work of his peers, the 15 publications to his name, and the 309 times his work was cited by other researchers. We also included recommendation letters signed by other medical experts. According to one of them: “While many researchers only hope for this level of success, [Client] has already achieved it, and thus, it is important that he remains to continue his remarkable research.” Another recommender stated that our client “is a major contributor to medical research on kidney disease.”

We would like to thank our client for selecting us to help him attain green card success. The approval of this NIW petition is another example of our firm’s excellent record of helping our clients accomplish their PR goals. We also thank our client for retaining us to help him and his spouse with their I-485 applications, and we guarantee both of them our continued support.
