42  We helped a researcher with 20 citations win I-140 EB2NIW Green Card application Approval

We helped a researcher with 20 citations win Approval of I-140 EB2NIW Green Card application.

Recently, our law firm helped a researcher in the research field of biomaterials and nanoparticles receive an approval of her I-140 NIW petition from the USCIS Nebraska Service Center (NSC).
The client received her M.S. degree in Chemistry and has been working as a research associate at a private company in the U.S. Her current research focuses on screening and design of experiment for small molecule drug candidates.

Although her employer may file an employer-sponsored green card application, she made an intelligent decision to file EB2NIW because EB2NIW gives her freedom to change jobs and employers during the green card application process so long as her new job is in her area of specialty and serves the national interest of the United States. Our client realized that job-changing was quite likely to happen in high-tech areas. EB2NIW is a safer play for her green card application.

For filing her EB2NIW petition, Client had prepared the following documentary evidence based on our 'Document Preparation Instructions': 1) about 5 papers published in professional peer-reviewed journals, such as Chemical Communication and Tetrahedron, etc.; 2) 2 conference presentations; 3) about 20 citations of her published papers; and 4) 5 recommendation letters. To expedite her NIW document preparation process, we provided substantial legal services to our Client.

Through the drafting and revision process between Client and our law firm, we helped Client describe in detail in her expert opinion letters regarding how her research results/findings have been used, implemented, or referenced by other researchers in related fields, and identify some prominent or leading scientists citing the applicant’s work and how their work was influenced by the applicant’s work.

For example, novel protected monomers developed by Client were repeatedly used by other research laboratories and companies for biological researches. This was exemplified by providing detailed information on leading scientists who used Client's findings and cited her works. Through her expert opinion letters and citation evidence, Client sufficiently demonstrated that some of leading scientists from around the world have acknowledged the value of her work and its important significance in the field of antibiotics and anticancer therapeutics.

Client's I-140 EB2NIW petition was recently approved smoothly without CIS Request for Evidence (RFE).
