You can tell me if there is any chance for EB1-A and can direct me to your website for the fees etc. Please do not tell me you can apply for NIW. I know my case is easy to be approved through NIW but I would like to go for EB1-A premium processing. NO NIW Please!!
I received my PhD in 2006 and have been working since then. Was postdoc for 5 years but recently got promoted. Okay, forget about guaranty! what do you think about my chance?
No competent attorney can ever guarantee a case. If an attorney gives you a guarantee run as fast as you can away and find another attorney. One would have to review the documents in order to determine whether EB-1 is possible.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
I completely agree with my colleague. It is simply impossible to give any kind of guarantee in an EB-1A case. If anybody gives you a guarantee, that's definitely a red flag. Based on the information you provided, it is not clear whether or not you're eligible under EB-1A. There is a lot of different factors to consider in an EB-1A case than a simple list of documents. The only way any competent attorney can evaluate your chances is by talking you, analyzing what kind of evidence can be gathered and reviewing all your documentation. I do not advertise my fees on this forum. Send me a message if you want a proposal. My firm's website: www.bltplaw.com
By the way, I would recommend against filing any kind of EB-1A case under premium processing. There are several reasons for that.
The statement above does not create an attorney-client relationship. It is intended as general information only and it is not a substitute for legal advice. You should consult with a licensed attorney to discuss the specific facts and circumstances of your case.
Please retain an attorney and have him/her review your achievements.
This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. Consult with a qualified attorney before making any legal decisions. Gen Kimura, (832) 247-6932.
In some cases this could work out, in some it would not. It depends on the subject of your work/studies, where cited, where presented, what type of associations etc. etc. Impossible to determine your chanced without a more detailed review.
Please consider scheduling a consultation with an attorney to evaluate your case.
