Case Summary:


It is typical for I-140 cases to be processed in about four to six months, but this particular case was approved in the considerably shorter time of just one month.


The exemplary client in this case that North America Immigration Law Group – had the opportunity to work with was a post-doctoral research fellow from India who was making contributions to the field of molecular biology.  Her research was concerned chiefly with the phytoremediation of heavy metals and toxicity in organisms, gene regulation by androgenic hormones under aging and oxidative stress in various cancer cells, and the identification of novel proteins involved in the TGF 1 growth factor related signaling in kidney fibrosis.  To achieve success in this case, we submitted an extensive record of the client’s publications and thrust of her research, such as providing 8 articles appearing in leading scientific journals that she either authored or co-authored related to the impressive work she was conducting in her field, along with evidence of her service as an academic reviewer and her membership on editorial boards of journals dedicated to her field.


This was all in the interest of establishing her value to the United States as a scientist and to her field as a whole, a claim reinforced by the fact her work has been cited by her peers an outstanding 142 times internationally.  One of the independent recommenders made this comment about the client’s proven achievements:  “Based on the paramount nature of [client’s] innovative research and contributions, I do not hesitate to confirm that (client) is a distinguished nephrologist and micro/molecular biologist with extraordinary ability at the very top level of her field.  With advanced training in microbiology, environmental science, and biotechnology, [client] is placed in a unique category of individuals with expertise in many different specialties… [She] has developed a high level of competence in conducting intricate molecular and genetic experiments as well as developing animal models that will be of striking importance in the future.”


Through extensive documentation and salient arguments, we here at North America Immigration Law Group – successfully argued that our client would serve the national interest to a greater degree than other researchers with similar education and experience.
