Case Summary:

Whenever we at North America Immigration Law Group are approached by a client to help them with their immigration petition to USCIS, we take utmost care in conducting a thorough background check of their credentials and then suggesting the best way forward. So, when a System Performance Engineer from Ghana approached us, we made certain that he received the best legal aid for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) case.

  • That his work has resulted in 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them first-authored) and 4 technical reports (3 of them first-authored). Moreover, some of these papers have been published in one of the top journals in the field, reflecting his peers’ recognition of the value of this research.
  • These publications have been cited a total of 102 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of civil engineering.
  • In further evidence of his acknowledged expertise in the field, he is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. He has already conducted at least 4 reviews, including reviews for leading journals in the field.
  • His research has been supported by funding from 3 leading agencies, demonstrating the recognized value and importance of his work. This funding includes grants from the Wyoming Department of Transportation. His work has also been supported by the Mountain Plains Consortium and by the Indiana Department of Transportation. These grants are reserved for research directly addressing critical problems in civil engineering and the larger society

Apart from these achievements two of the several recommendations he received had the following to say about his work:

“Through this analysis, he found that major vehicular crashes are preventable in many instances with clearly marked advance warning signs and similar traffic control devices. Such devices, however, must be properly placed and maintained in order to be effective. Since [the client] made novel discoveries in this area, it is evident that his continued research is vital to public safety in the United States.”

“[The client] has already made an important and commendable addition toward reducing the number of highway car crash deaths and the costs associated with inadequate and unsafe highway structures. Consequently, I believe that he is a uniquely qualified figure operating in the civil engineering field today and an asset to the United States.”

We are certain that he is more than capable of furthering the knowledge base in the chosen field and continuing his work here in the United States of America. We thus wish him the very best in life and success in all endeavors that he takes up.
