Outstanding Researcher Status for an Accomplished Chinese Researcher

Client: Adult Male, H-1B Status About to Expire
Client’s Country of Origin: China
Case Type: EB1-A Alien of Extraordinary Ability
Date of Application: June 11, 2009
Date of Approval: June 19, 2009

Background:
Our client was an accomplished and experienced researcher with a doctoral degree. When we first met, he was almost out of H-1B status which is why he retained the experienced immigration lawyers at Herman Legal Group to file a petition under outstanding researcher category.

Challenge:
An employer needs a great argument to prove why they really need you. It can be difficult to craft an argument for outstanding researcher status which is why it’s important to seek legal assistance.

Action:
Because our client frequently published his research papers, we were able to cite them as significant progress in his field of study. We highlighted his most important achievement: his research led to more accurate diagnostic techniques for neural diseases.

Result:
Herman Legal Group helped our client meet all criteria to demonstrate his extraordinary ability as a researcher. Eight days later, our client secured an offer from the same employer.
