Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group has been known to be a leading law firm that has over the years come to help over 25,000 clients get various kinds of visa approvals. So when we got a client requesting us to help him file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we employed our team to do the required work. They were quick to run a background check followed by a retainer agreement signed by both our firm and the client. This was then taken forward by the appointed attorney, who started preparing his case. He collected relevant data from his CV and transcripts.

  • We quickly discovered that his proposed endeavor is to develop appropriate emergency preparedness plans to ensure timely and efficient responses to animal diseases. Considering the global threat of zoonotic diseases and their ability to cause widespread chaos, his research on disease modeling and the improvement of approaches for the suppression of disease transmission is of great international value. This is why he was able to receive valuable recommendations from other experts in the field, two of which are quoted below:

“[The client] has proven successful at implementing a cross-national disease model and his experience is invaluable to the future of global disease control. I strongly encourage the US to allow [the client] to continue his efforts for the sake of both the national and international well-being.”

“It is of paramount importance that the U.S. remains at the forefront of veterinary epidemiology and has the most up-to-date prevention and containment plans in order to avert economic disaster. The work [the client] performs is essential to this mission and surely will contribute to the improved protection of the agriculture and animal production industries in the United States.”

  • On the other hand, we also put together a list of his academic achievements for his petition packet. This included information on his publications, citations, etc. Knowing that his research has resulted in 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored), was of importance in influencing the adjudicating authorities in believing the value of his work for the academic and for the country at large. His work has also appeared in the proceedings of several notable conferences on an international scale.
  • At the same time, these publications have been cited a total of 63 times, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of veterinary epidemiology. Another touchstone of a researcher’s capabilities is the peer review he has been invited to conduct.
  • Our client has completed at least 21 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable venues like these, it is clear that he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.

Additionally, his study has received funding from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service. This funding supports projects that are applicable in the development of cutting-edge scientific resolutions to solve issues of national and global agricultural importance, indicating how valuable his work is indeed for the country.

Thus when the client received his approval, we were glad but not surprised by his victory. We wish him the very best in life.
