EB-1 and NIW applications in the Raleigh-Durham Research Triangle

The research triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) has been a dynamic engine of growth for North Carolina's health care, biotechnology and education sectors. The technology corridor known as the Research Triangle Park (aka: RTP) boasts some of the nation's most cutting-edge and well-respected companies. Critical to the continued development and emergency of the area's economy has been the continuous flows of immigrants to the area. RTP's focus on the high-tech sector has resulted in flocks of H-1Bs, L-1 and O-1 visa holders to the area, which ultimately has paved the way for permanent residency filings, through the EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 process. The region has seen a boom in the number of EB-1.1 Individuals of Extraordinary Ability, EB-1.2 Outstanding Researcher and EB-2 National Interest Waiver applications filed, all of which have helped countless individuals obtain permanent residency in the United States.

Brown Immigration Law has a large and devoted practice to these specialty applications and has a track-record of success in constructing and submitting these filings. We have counseled out clients to think of such applications as handmade suits: tailored and fitted to the unique specifications of each individual's case. A "cookie-cutter" type of approach is hardly a recipe for success; therefore, Brown Immigration Law has placed an emphasis on ensuring that an application is fully completed before submission, as is the case with all filings. Correctly determining whether an individual fits into the EB-1 or NIW categories is an important first step, as a misdiagnosis could result in months of lost time and expense. Preparing a detailed resume or Curriculum Vitae is an important first step in providing a thoughtful analysis as to whether the EB-1 or NIW category is a proper fit.
