Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group has been responsible for the successful representation of over 25,000 clients at USCIS. With this kind of experience, comes the great responsibility of making sure that every client is well represented. In October 2020, a client from Finland approached us to represent him for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Following our routine background check, we were able to find the immense contributions that he had made in the field of biomedical engineering. His proposed endeavor was to continue his work on the development of biomaterials and tissue engineering. We found that given the prevalence and impact of clinical conditions he is targeting, it was clear that his research on these approaches for these conditions was of immense value to the global medical community.

We collected evidence that he had built an impressive record of publication. As evidence of his contributions, his work has resulted in hundreds of scientific articles. His publications had also been cited an immense total of over 7,000 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications were widely recognized and relied upon in the field of biomedical engineering. In further evidence of his acknowledged expertise in the field, he was also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. He had already been invited to conduct at least 150 reviews in total.

In addition, his research was funded by several important research agencies. Funding from sources such as these makes it clear that he is pursuing research that is nationally and internationally important and that he is recognized as a leading expert in the field.

We were also able to persuade him to obtain multiple letters of recommendation from experts in the field.

The overall value of his research was thus proven beyond doubt winning him the NIW case. Thus, he decided to retain us to file an I-485 petition for his dependents too. We are grateful to him for choosing us and making us a part of his success story.
