Success Story: EB2 NIW Approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Chemistry in 2 months

Client’s Testimonial:

Dear Attorneys at Chen Immigration, Thank you so much! What great news this is! Especially since only couple of days back I emailed to ask if things are probably going OK! And they were! I will certainly recommend you to friends; in fact I had already recommended you though I don’t know if they’ve contacted you yet. Thank you so much!

On August 29th, 2013, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Chemistry (Approval Notice)

General Field: Chemistry
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher
Country of Origin: Lebanon
Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing:  Michigan
Approval Notice Date: August 29, 2013
Processing Time:  2 months

Case Summary:

The average processing time for I-140 cases is 4-6 months. But on many occasions, we have cases approved far faster than the average processing time.

Another exceptional client that North America Immigration Law Group – had the pleasure of working with was a postdoctoral researcher from Lebanon working in the field of chemistry.  Her work had focused specifically on polyoxometalates, metalloproteins, and the synthesis of small molecules with possible therapeutic applications. We at North America Immigration Law Group – demonstrated that her continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in her field, but the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of chemistry, including at least 11 peer-reviewed journal articles and numerous conference posters. Her publications had been cited at least 638 times at the time of case filing.  Of her accomplishments, one of the recommenders remarked: “A thorough understanding of metalloproteins is critical to biomedical research, as many such proteins have been linked to the cause of disease.  By taking an in-depth look at the ways that they function in a biological setting, we can better grasp how their function differs in the presence of disease.  Overall, I can confirm the importance of [client’s] research to a variety of scientific concentrations, as it has set the groundwork for further investigation into the role of metalloproteins, and could indirectly lead to the development of important treatments and other useful applications.” Through extensive documentation, we at North America Immigration Law Group – successfully argued that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. Her NIW application was approved in just 2 months.
