Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved for California-based Postdoctoral Researcher from Iran in the Field of Biomechanics

Client’s Testimonial:

“I started my NIW process with Chen Attorney on August2015, I submitted my NIW application on Dec 2015, and my case got approved after 8 months. I think Chen Attorney is the most successful attorney in NIW approval and they know what to do, what to write in letters of recommendations, and your application letter, and what documents to submit. It was very convenience working with them in the whole process and when I had a question, it usually took me less than 2 business days to receive a response back from them. The letters of recommendations and the cover letter were very different than what I thought could be, but I trusted the way they wrote it and just spent some time to edit them. Of course they were not expert in my field and some parts required major revision. In general NIW application requires a lot of your time and money. In the end, I am very happy working with them and comparing with my friends’ cases working with other attorneys, I really recommend Chen Attorney for NIW application. Also, they usually give you a “do it yourself package” for filing I-485 for free, which is almost all you need to file I-485. We used that package and filed our I-485, and we got approved 4 month after the NIW approval.”

On September 8th, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Biomechanics (Approval Notice).


General Field: Biomechanics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: Iran

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: September 8th, 2016

Processing Time: 8 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

A gifted postdoctoral researcher from Iran engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to build and file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case on his behalf. After carefully evaluating his credentials, we determined that we could build a strong case for him and proceeded to establish an attorney-client relationship. These are some of the key points included in our client’s petition dossier:

  • We paid special attention to his publication record and the total number of citations gathered from his work. At the time of filing, our client had published 6 peer-reviewed journal articles, 11 conference papers, and numerous conference presentations. Furthermore, his work had been cited 69 times.
  • Our client’s Ph.D. in Civil Engineering was also noted. We used this to prove to the USCIS that our client has the training and knowledge needed to carry out impactful research that benefits the United States.
  • To further fortify our client’s petition, we detailed his work on the mechanics of biological membranes and demonstrated that he is one of only a small handful of researchers whose research results are essential to the United States. We proved that his investigations have directly contributed to improved scientific understanding of cell mechanics, which in turn supports the ability of other scientists to address diseases and disorders that are cellular in origin, while also refining out understanding of other complex small-scale structures and phenomena. Additionally, our client’s specific research efforts are contributing to the United States’ efforts to further scientific knowledge, particularly as it relates to cellular biology, medicine, and nano- and micro-scale materials.
  • In a show of support, five of our client’s peers contributed recommendation letters. According to one of them: “[Client’s] mathematical models, computational simulations, and biomimetic experimental setups already count as some of the field’s most radical breakthroughs in recent years. [Client’s] research ability is virtually unmatched, and it is in both the national and scientific interest to permit a continuation of his work.”

Overall our client waited 8 months and 10 days for the USCIS to take action on his case. We congratulate him for securing the national interest waiver, and we wish him the best with his continued research.
