Case Type: EB-1 Immigration Petition for Aliens with Extraordinary Ability in Science, Arts, Business or Athletics
Date of Application: February 23, 2007

Our client was an internationally recognized academician and practitioner in developmental economics. He was the chief economist of a prestigious institution when he retained us to file an extraordinary ability petition under EB-1 category on his behalf.
We helped our client prove that he met all criteria to demonstrate extraordinary ability in developmental economic research, as shown in extensive authorship of books and frequently cited papers, and working for decades as a leading expert for premier international organizations responsible for regional, or even continental development.
Eleven days later, the case was approved. As a result, our client now lives in the U.S. with his family and engages in his passion of economic consultancy. As a satisfied client, he has referred a number of his colleagues to Herman Legal Group.
“Herman Legal Group’s team is outstanding and clearly one of the best in the field of immigration law, based on my experience and those of my friends whom I have subsequently referred to them. If you want the best lawyers working on your case, including moving/working in the U.S., this is the place. I recommend the firm without any hesitation.”
