Case Summary

A senior Research Scientist hired Meyer Law Group to file an O-1A visa petition for extraordinary ability in the sciences. The client is an internationally recognized Research Scientist in the field of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. He has a Ph.D. in Computer Science and years of experience in the field.

A Summary of the Petition:

Firstly, we noted the client’s significant scientific contributions to the fields of machine learning, subspace clustering, motion segmentation, 3D vision, and unsupervised machine learning. For example, the client authored 22 articles published in numerous leading academic journals. Other researchers cited his work over 422 times collectively.

Secondly, the petition included six letters of recommendation from other senior researchers in computer science and machine learning. These recommendations confirmed the importance and prestige of the client’s work. Specifically, the letters referenced his novel approaches and groundbreaking solutions.

We also noted that the client has over seven years of high-level and cutting-edge research experience at organizations with distinguished reputations. Furthermore, as an expert in his field, the client judged the work of others at prestigious academic journals and international conferences. Some of the conferences and journals in which the client worked as a reviewer include the International Conference on Machine Learning, the National Conference of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence, and the Journal of Machine Learning and Research.

To conclude, USCIS approved our client’s application within 14 days of filing thanks to the expertise of MLG. Due to the success and quick turnaround of the O-1A petition, the client hired MLG again to file his EB-1B petition and an adjustment of his immigration status to permanent resident. No request for further evidence was needed. MLG is endlessly grateful for the client’s enduring trust in our firm to handle his immigration matters.
