“After having graduated with a PhD degree in Civil Engineering from Arizona State University in May 2016, I waited for almost 3 years to improve my credentials before reaching out to Chen Immigration Attorneys. I heard great things about them through my personal connections, and I finally reached out to them on April 30, 2019 for an evaluation of my profile for a possible green card petition through EB1B. I received a very positive feedback from them within 24 hours. They advised to pursue the option of the self-petition, EB2-NIW along with the employee sponsored EB1B. They went over in detail the merits of this combination, associated fees, payment plans, and the required documents. It took me 6 weeks or so to get everything squared up with my employers, and by mid-June,2019 we had a signed contract and the Chen Associates were officially engaged to work on the EB2-NIW petition. They have a very systematic approach to the document preparation with several guidelines explaining the process flow step-by-step. They self-appoint strict timelines for any major tasks they undertake; and always end up fulfilling them. Throughout this process, they promptly answered all the questions I had; and came across as very knowledgeable of the entire process and very efficient in communicating the requirements in simple language. Once I finished working on summarizing my research contribution in their specific format and prepared the list of recommenders, Chen Associates promptly started working on my case and produced the draft letters by mid-August 2019. Once the letters were signed and finalized, they prepared the draft petition by mid-September 2019. In my experience the time-consuming parts of this process was for me to summarize my research contributions in their specific format and securing the signed letters from the recommenders. Once the petition, recommendation and employment letters were finalized, they provided a complete list of supporting documents which are mainly immigration and professional experience related; and were relatively easy to secure. We finally, submitted the EB2-NIW petition to the USCIS on October 17, 2019. After precisely 164 days, my EB2-NIW petition was approved by USCIS on March 31, 2020; without any RFE’s. I thoroughly appreciate the work done by Chen Associates; and I would highly recommend them for any of your immigration needs.”

A structural engineer from India contacted North America Immigration Law Group (WeGreened.com) to help him file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. After a careful review of his credentials, we concluded that we could help him secure the national interest waiver, and these are the key points we focused on:
- Citation and Publication Count: Thanks to Google Scholar and other similar references, we determined that our client’s 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored) and 3 conference papers (2 of them first-authored) had gathered 172 citations.
- Review Experience: We also noted the 30 times our client reviewed the work of his peers. Only top-level experts in their field are invited to perform this important review work, so this frequent review activity further demonstrates our client’s important standing in the field.
- Research Projects: In order to prove to the USCIS that our client’s work is of inherent value to the United States, we first had to understand every aspect of it. We started by reviewing his research on structural engineering and construction materials. We also established that his research is of national importance because it contributes to the development of infrastructural systems with improved durability, effectiveness, and efficiency. Such systems are fundamental to a number of sectors, including economic prosperity, political stability, social justice, and overall quality of human life.
- Testimonials: To further fortify our client’s NIW petition packet, we included 2 recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field of civil engineering who were familiar with his work.
Overall, the USCIS spent 5 months and 13 days adjudicating our client’s NIW petition before getting the approval. With over 16,000 approved I-140 cases in the bag, our firm is pleased to have helped yet another client get closer to a green card.
