Miller Mayer attorney Kristal Ozmun recently received an approval for an I-140 petition in the EB-1A extraordinary ability green card preference category. Our client is an expert in the field of medical research from China, specifically in the area of cancer research. In our strong filing, we demonstrated that our client has made original scientific contributions of major significance to the field, has participated as a judge of the work of others in the field, has authored scholarly articles and publications, and has performed in a leading or critical role for organizations with a distinguished reputation, among other criteria. USCIS approved this EB-1A petition in just one week for our client without a request for additional evidence.

Our expertise in immigration law helped win this approval in a visa category with a very high standard of evidence. Miller Mayer attorney Stephen Yale-Loehr has also written about the EB-1A immigrant visa category, explaining the requirements and recent trends. The article can be seen at
