Miller Mayer attorney Nicolai Hinrichsen recently received an approval for an I-140 petition in the EB-1A extraordinary ability green card preference category for a client who is an engineer from India. In our filing, we demonstrated that our client has made original contributions of major significance to the field of engineering, has participated as a judge of the work of others in the field, has authored scholarly articles and publications, and has held membership in organizations that require distinguished achievements from their members, among other criteria. This EB-1A petition was approved in just over 3 months for our client without a request for additional evidence from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Our experience in immigration law helped secure 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 read at
