Extraordinary Ability Petition (EB-1) for a Nigerian Diplomat

Client: Extraordinary Ability Petition (EB-1) for a Nigerian Diplomat
Client’s Country of Origin: Nigeria
Case Type: EB-1 Petition for Alien with Extraordinary Ability in Arts, Science and Business
Date of Application: January 15, 2003
Date of Approval: August 5, 2003

Background:
Our client, an internationally distinguished economist and academician, retained Cleveland immigration lawyer Richard Herman and his associates to prepare his petition for alien with extraordinary ability.

Action:
We helped our client prove that:

  1. He satisfied all necessary criteria (such as, he was an internationally renowned expert of the field).
  2. His residence alone would continue to actually benefit the United States.

Result:
In less than seven months, our client was able to reside in the U.S. with his family. He continues to engage in Africa-related consulting services, the profession he loves. In addition, the satisfied client continues to refer a number of his colleagues to Herman Legal Group for immigration counsel.
