Success Stories: Thanks to Our Unique Legal Strategy, a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Electrical Engineering Obtains NIW Approval


Client’s Testimonial:

“I still cannot believe that I got the result early like this… Thanks a lot for your great help!”

On December 3rd, 2020, we received another I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: Vietnam

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Virginia

Approval Notice Date: December 3rd, 2020

Processing Time: 10 months, 20 days

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral associate engaged our proficient services to file an I-140 petition under the EB-2 category (National Interest Waiver) on his behalf. With a Ph.D. in power electronics and ample experience progressing the same field, our client was surely eligible for this visa category. After we filed the case, our client received the approval within 11 months.

We Attached the Following Required EB-2 Petition Documents:

  • As our duty to help our client in showcasing his academic and professional achievements, we documented our client’s impressive record of citations count (32 citations at the time of filing) as well as publications (8 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 first-authored), 5 peer-reviewed conference articles (3 first-authored), and 1 first-authored patent). Furthermore, our client reviewed the work of other researchers in the same field 30 times, thereby demonstrating his acknowledged expertise in the field. We appraised his research work thoroughly and represented it to the USCIS that our client aspires to continue his research on developing novel modulation control and topologies in power converters, thereby increasing power density and improving the efficiency of power converters used in electric vehicle motors.
  • In leading him to the EB-2 victory, the petition packet also contained five recommendation letters that steadily supported the approval of his case. One of the recommenders described our client’s research as:

“[Our client’s] research reduces the amount of power used, thereby reducing the global need for energy. Additionally, his work contributes to the development of renewable energy sources, which do not release greenhouse gasses or pollutants and are much less dangerous for workers. His research is thus highly advantageous to public and environmental health.”

Favorable Outcome:

We successfully convinced USCIS to grant the NIW approval to our well-deserving client. We would like to thank our client for choosing us, and we congratulate him as he continues to flourish in the field of electrical engineering.
