Miller Mayer recently received approval of an initial O-1 extraordinary ability work visa for a professor in political science and South Asian studies. Miller Mayer successfully proved to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services that our client, a researcher and expert in political science, is clearly an individual of extraordinary ability. With a strong initially filed petition and after a successful response to a request for additional evidence, Miller Mayer used its decades of immigration law experience to bring about this positive outcome. Through their major original research contributions to the field, authorship of significant books and articles in prestigious professional journals, employment in organizations having a distinguished reputation, and their experience having judged the work of peers in their field, Miller Mayer was able to craft a winning case.
