Client’s Testimonial:

[Chen Immigration Attorneys] are really great and I really did a right choice retaining them to file I-140 for me. Some of my friends are skeptical and hesitate to retain you for service. They will change their minds and turn to your law firm very soon as they see the approval of my I-140 is so fast.

Another exceptional client that we had the pleasure of working with was a Research Fellow from Taiwan working in the field of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology.  Specifically, the client’s work focused on the development of treatments for cancer. We demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in cellular and molecular pharmacology 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 his field, including at least 5 peer-reviewed articles published in leading field journal. His publications had been cited at least 181 times at the time of case filing.  Of his accomplishments, one of the 5 recommenders remarked: “In my expert opinion, [he] is an accomplished, dedicated scientist, and is one of the top researchers in the field of cancer research. The future of cancer treatment in the country depends upon innovative contributions from researchers like [him]. In my experience, human capital with the ability to innovate is understood as one of the most important assets that a country can possess. Through extensive documentation, we successfully argued that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW application was approved in just 28 days.
