Success Stories: Our Customized Petition Helped a Senior Fellow from India to Secure NIW approval in 7 Months


Client’s Testimonial:

North America Immigration Law Group was referred to me by one of my colleagues. It was an absolute pleasure working with them. A highly professional team of lawyers helped me each and every step of the way. I was impressed by the fact that how methodical they are. A client specific data base was created, where all the documents were uploaded for review. They responded to all my questions including some trivial ones without any hesitation. I have rehired them for my next immigration filing and can’t recommend enough, if you are considering them.”

On February 24th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Fellow in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Washington

Approval Notice Date: February 24th, 2020

Processing Time: 7 months, 3 days

Case Summary:

A senior fellow in Washington hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW petition on his behalf. Our client who has obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry, has extensive experience in the field of biochemistry.

Our job was to compile as much relevant information as we could to build a strong EB-2 NIW case for our client. The data that we gathered demonstrated that our client’s work on the development of functional metalloproteins for carbon neutral energy production and biotherapeutics for treating diabetes and migraines materials benefits the U.S. because it provides new technologies and materials for the early diagnosis of diseases like cancer. We backed up this argument by documenting the impressive 184 citations collected from his 7 publications and his experience of judging the work of his peers 6 times.

To bolster our client’s case, we also included recommendation letters signed by other professionals working in the field. One of these experts stated: “It is estimated that 38 million people in the United States suffer from migraines, 2 to 3 million of whom suffer from the chronic form of migraines. Additionally, more than 100 million Americans have either diabetes or prediabetes. [Client’s] research has therefore benefited and continues to benefit the best interests of the United States, improving healthcare and aiding in the creation of improved pharmaceuticals.”

Exactly 7 months and 3 days after we filed the EB-2 NIW petition on our client’s behalf, he received notification of case approval. We congratulate our client for overcoming such a significant hurdle in the green card process, and we wish him well as he continues to advance the field of biochemistry. Lastly, we thank our client for trusting our services and retaining us for his I-140 EB1A case.
