环保工程师 24 篇引用文 NIW 1个月顺利批准
An environmental engineer with 14 papers and 7 review citations had his
EB2NIW petition approved in 31 days.
Recently, our law firm helped a researcher in the field of environmental
engineering, specializing in Contaminated Groundwater and Soil Remediation,
who had 14 published papers and 7 review citations, obtain an approval of
his green card petition in EB2NIW in 1 month (31 days). His I-140 EB2NIW
application was filed on August 30, 2013 and approved on September 30, 2013
without a Request for Evidence (RFE).
We have prepared is a synopsis of his case based on the following EB2NIW
a) Areas of National Interest
The client, who is Senior Corporate Engineer at an industrial and commercial
water treatment company in the U.S., works in the field of environmental
pollution with applications to environmental engineering and science. 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 on contaminated water
treatment has important/practical significance and direct links to the U.S.
long-term interest in water quality and public health.
He is a critical environmental engineer to develop novel water treatment
technology for fracking water and sea water to convert to reusable quality
and for potable purposes. As water is becoming an increasingly scarce
resource, ensuring sufficient water to meet the needs of households,
agriculture, industry and the environment is a growing concern across the
globe. Many parts of the United States already face serious water shortages
and even drought. Population growth and the changing climate are putting
additional stresses on water supplies. The client’s research is focused on
investigating the treatability of oil and gas industry wastewater. His
achievements and expertise on chlorinated solvent bioremediation and
modeling soil and groundwater contamination has benefited and will continue
to benefit important national interests of the United States in
environmental pollution, public health and water.
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 M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering.
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 expertise in chlorinated solvent bioremediation and
modeling soil and groundwater contamination, as well as his intellectual
power and broad professional experience in contaminant removal, water
chemistry, and chemical engineering that are rooted in his past and current
To present such arguments, we helped the client prepare two (2) advisory
opinion letters from recognized government organizations, such as the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We also helped him prepare six (6)
testimonial opinion letters of independent/non-independent experts who are
able to evaluate and discuss his knowledge, expertise, and research
abilities in view of national interest aspects.
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 12 first-authored papers, 2 co-authored papers, 7 review
citations, 24 research citations, 8 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 critical
roles in the projects, and the fact that the future progress of the current
research projects depends on his continued research on further development
and implementation of sound and economical environmental pollution control
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.
The EB2NIW applicants who are outside the United States do not need a U.S.
employer to sponsor a green card application. The applicant needs to have
a U.S. institute provide a ‘Letter of Intent to Offer’ to USCIS to prove
that he/she will be offered a research position in his/his field of
specialty in the United States after obtaining a green card.
Our law firm has substantial experience for more than 18 years to help
postdoctoral researchers, professors, engineers, and other advanced degree
professionals apply for nonimmigrant status in O1, H1B, etc., and green card
applications in EB1A, EB1B and EB2NIW. For more information, you can visit

We provide Free Evaluation services. If you are interested in a Green Card
application, please email us your resume, the number of citations of your
works, and your main contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject: Green
