Approval of National Interest Waiver

We were please last week to receive the approval of a National Interest Waiver for an I-140 Immigrant Worker Petition. The applicant is a research scientist for a major university on Long Island who has published extensively in the field of molecular biology and produced several patents that have attracted the attention of industry. The application was originally filed in February of this year and was approved without A Request for Evidence (RFE) even though the application had been previously denied when the applicant submitted his materials without an attorney. His adjustment of status is pending.
