Success Story: EB2 NIW Approval for Opera Singer in 41 Days

Client’s testimonial:

I can’t speak highly enough about [North America Immigration Law Group –], and not only because they helped me to obtain approval for my EB2 NIW petition, in some record 40 days (!), but also because they made the usually stressful and confusing process of preparation the petition as stress-free as possible. Highly professional, punctual, creative, the entire North America Immigration Law Group –  exudes contagious confidence and produces amazing results. I have the highest regard and admiration for this law firm and recommend them to anyone wishing to apply for any immigrant or non-immigrant status.
Thank you, [North America Immigration Law Group –], for everything you have done for my case. It has been an absolute pleasure working with all of you. I greatly appreciate your professionalism, expertise, creativity and… patience with my constant soprano’s lateness 🙂

Case Summary:

While most cases for the I-140 have a processing time of 4-6 months, we often have cases that get the approval sooner than that. This case is a very unique one when it comes to North America Immigration Law Group –, due to the fact that we do not receive many applications for artists. While these cases are rare, we enjoy working on them as much as we do any other client.

This particular client was in the United States on an O-1B status since 2004 and was involved with the media a number of times, appearing on: NPR/WBUR, Good Morning America, CBS, ABC News, Oprah Radio, The Boston Globe, and others. Additionally, this client has her own business which is becoming widely known. One of her independent recommenders reveals: “[Client] covered several different topics in the workshop, teaching the women how to take care of their voices and to how to increase their volume without straining their voices or adversely affecting their tone. She discussed techniques like staying hydrated, beginning each day with gentle vocal exercises, and maintaining proper posture and breathing, as well as some other, more involved ways to change and improve the way we speak. The workshop was well received by its attendees. [Client] has tailored her method specifically to a number of professions, including several techniques unique to lawyers, so she was able to provide clear direction about maintaining voice quality throughout a long day, improving persuasive tones, creating a stronger presence in the courtroom, and reducing the very common fear of public speaking. Attendees were able to see [Client’s] techniques in action; within the time that the workshop took place, she was able to transform the voice of one member who had long been struggling to project her voice in the courtroom.”

Adding on, another independent recommender noted “I have frequently turned to [Client]’s music when making my music selections, as she is one of the most talented musicians I have come across. Not only is [Client] a unique and electrifying performer who is absolutely gifted with an unparalleled and beautiful voice, but she has also used her musical knowledge to write her own vocal adaptions of major musical works.”  With the strong petition letter and recommendation letters we prepared, her NIW case was approved in just 41 days.
