An electrical engineer with 10 papers and 17 citations had his EB2NIW
petition approved in 2 months and 11 days.
Recently, our law firm helped a researcher in the field of software
engineering and telecommunications who had only 10 published papers and 17
citations obtain an approval of his green card petition in EB2NIW in 2
months and 11 days (71 days). His I-140 EB2NIW application was filed on
October 17, 2012 and approved on December 27, 2012 without a Request for
We have prepared is a synopsis of his case based on the following EB2NIW
a) Areas of National Interest
The client, who is the chief software engineer at a US engineering company
providing VSAT communication systems for maritime use, works in the field of
software engineering and telecommunications. We persuasively argued and
presented evidence to prove how the client’s research work would be on a
national scale, not just limited to a single region or entity, and how his
leading edge work has important/practical significance and direct links to
the U.S. long-term interest in satellite communications research.
He is a critical research engineer to develop novel, affordable marine
stabilized antennae. Due to high cost of current stabilized antennas, the
majority commercial ships still cannot have high-speed internet connections
and enjoy the benefits of this state-of-art communication can bring to them.
The client’s research is focused on investigating the reliable and
affordable solutions of providing cost-effective high speed internet for
maritime sectors. His outstanding research and development has produced a
cost effective and high-quality antenna for maritime uses which will likely
advance satellite communications for U.S. marine industries.
b) Advanced Degrees
The client proved that he has earned a master’s degree or higher in his
area of specialty in order to meet this required criterion. He received his
Ph.D. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical
c) Evidence to Establish Applicant’s Uniqueness and Innovativeness to
Serve the National Interest
For this important criterion, we showed that 1) the client possesses
distinctive technical skills, knowledge and research abilities that cannot
be articulated on an application for labor certification, and 2) his
expertise and prior research experience are required for his current and
future research projects that are connected to the U.S. national interest.
We argued that his current position and the ongoing projects rely on his
previous research findings and expertise in system optimization, remote
device management, and web-based user interface, as well as his intellectual
power and broad professional experience in satellite communication-related
areas that are rooted in his past and current research discoveries.
To present such arguments, we helped the client prepare a current supervisor
opinion letter in a careful and thorough manner. The client’s past and
current research, and their links to national interests were precisely
delineated in the opinion letter of the expert who are very familiar with
his work and areas of his specialty. We also drafted and prepared five (5)
opinion letters of independent experts who have not worked with the client
and have no direct knowledge of him, but who are able to evaluate and
discuss his knowledge, expertise, and research abilities in view of national
d) To Prove That Applicant’s Prior Achievements Have Some Degree of
National Level Benefits and Impact/Influence on the Field as a Whole
We helped our client establish his research accomplishments are so
significant that the degree of benefits and impact demonstrated by his
research is greater than most of his peers in the field. This can be proved
by documenting the applicant’s actual accomplishments in the field.
Through our comprehensive evidence preparation system, we thoroughly
documented his 4 first-authored papers, 6 co-authored papers, 17 research
citations, 6 opinion letters, among other documents.
When we prepared the client’s documentation, we paid close attention in
organizing his evidence in a way that the CIS review officer may find
critical evidence easily and quickly. Our evidence preparation system
ensures that our clients present all their evidence according to the legal
requirements of EB2NIW.
e) Waiver of the Labor Certification Requirement
In expert opinion letters, we provided a detailed explanation of why a labor
certification application is not appropriate in the client’s case. To
show that the client’s absence in his current research activities would
adversely affect the U.S interests, we helped him describe his roles in the
projects, and the fact that the future progress of the current research
projects depends on his continued research and development of new stabilized
antenna technologies based on his prior research discoveries.
The successful adjudication of the client’s EB2NIW petition without a RFE
reflects the fact that the client’s case was well-prepared and well-
organized by our systematic evidence preparation.
