Miller Mayer attorney Kristal Ozmun recently received an approval for an immigrant visa petition in the EB-1A extraordinary ability preference category. Our client, a computational biomedical engineer from China, received the approval after a response by our firm to a request for additional evidence. In our strong initial filing, we demonstrated that our client made original contributions, authored scholarly articles, performed in a leading or critical role for organizations with a distinguished reputation, and was the subject of published material in professional or major trade publications, among several other criteria. Our expertise in immigration law helped win this approval in a green card category with a very high standard of evidence. 

Miller Mayer attorney Steve Yale-Loehr has written about the EB-1A green card category, explaining the requirements and recent trends. The article is on our website at
