Korean Engineer Working in Industry Approved as Outstanding Researcher
A Korean industrial research engineer came to us because a U.S. company that manufactured non-proprietary equipment in his field wished to file an EB-1B Outstanding Researcher case on his behalf. The challenges were showing that our client had made contributions to the field as a whole, and documenting the petitioner’s accomplishments in the field since they held no patents. We were able to find evidence in the public record, and took care to structure it into a detailed, coherent picture which showed the case’s approvability. Indeed, it was approved quickly and without RFE.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a violinist whose non-profit employer did not have the budget to pay the required filing fees to support her H-1B visa extension. However, when we examined her resume and interviewed her, we saw that perhaps she had the elements for an approvable O-1 “Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts” case.
