We won a case following a Request for Evidence for a scientist. We were able to establish that he is an internationally renowned scientist who is acclaimed and respected in the international research community for his expertise in the area of nanotechnology, magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposites, nanomagnetism, thermoelectric nanoparticles and nanocomposite materials. His unique specialty set him apart from others in the field.
Outstanding Researcher, Professor
We filed a petition under premium processing for the beneficiary, who qualified based on his publication record, original contributions, membership in a professional society and service as a reviewer of others’ work. The beneficiary had more than sixteen years of research experience and thus had garnered an international reputation for his outstanding work. We provided letters of recommendation from various international experts in his field that confirmed his status amongst his research peers.
We first contacted Rajiv in 2011 while seeking an expert advice on our Green Card (GC) options. We were in fact looking to file under EB-1 (a) and most of the attorneys we contacted gave us a postive nod. However, I thought it was only Attorney Khanna who gave us a very honest opinion based on my CV. He told me very clearly that it is better to file under EB-1 (b) and that EB-1(a) could be long shot. He also said that the attorney will get paid irrespective of whether the GC petition is approved or not. And that is what we wanted to avoid and Rajiv was right to point that out. You cannot ask for more honesty in a person especially when it comes to complex legal matters. So it was then upto me to see if my employer is willing to support my case. And there were many issues and Rajiv was there to help me clear every questions that my employer had. I remember sitting in a conference call with at least 6 people from various offices and Rajiv answered every question they had with great patience. And what is humbling is that he did this all for free and without any contract signed. We signed a legal contract with the Law Offices of Rajiv Khanna in the month of June, 2012 and started preparing for filing I-140. You cannot ask for a better case manager than Diane who is always there to help you. You send her an e-mail and there will be a reply before you sign out. It is very important to have a good case manager like her while going through this arduous process of collecting documents, especially reference letters and various other documents (Our I-140 petion weighed at 10.1 Kg :)). Anyways to make the story short, the I-140 petition was filed premium on August 27th at Texas Service Center and we got an approval dated September 6th, 2012. An approval without any RFE is defintely credited to the professionalism that went into preparing the petition. This would not have been possible without the expert guidance and help from Rajiv. So let me take this opportunity to express our appreciation and gratitude to Rajiv and his staff, especially Diane.
I talked with Rajiv about a possible EB1 application and found him to be exceedingly helpful. I appreciate the fact that he took the time to explain to me what more is needed to be done for my application to have a better chance of going through. Thanks!
I should say that I have the highest respect for Mr. Khanna both professionally and personally. I got my EB1 GC (1 year total start-to-finish) some time ago through Mr. Khanna's firm. Worth every penny and I still recommend to all my friends. This is my true feeling. As a matter of fact, I intend to apply for naturalization soon and I had a few questions concerning the same. I just wrote an email to him. Soon he responded back and he proactively gave me a appointment to speak to him at no cost. He was very kind in clarifying all my question in a friendly manner and suggested that I could apply for the same myself. Who in this day-and-age would dispense free advice knowing tha they are not going to gain anything from it monetarily. To this end, I have great respect for him. Even during my GC process, he was very very helpful and gave the right advice during all the twists-and-turns. I know that many of us are not millionaires, at least staring our lives as non-immigrats in this country. In that regard, while applying for my GC, his services fees were appropriate and the extreme value that he provides. I know that because I inquired with quite a few attorneys at that point in time and was shocked by the extremely outrageous service fee that they demanded. Furthermore, I know for a fact the immense help he provides indirectly through this forums and free conference calls to the public (not only his clients). I use his forums heavily to do my deligent research related to immigration. Furthermore, he has the website dedicated only for his clients where he was very much accessible via personal chat sessions and enabling people to share a wealth on knowledgebase. I know that there are other forums and none can compare to the one at immigration.com. Finally, I would like to conclude by saying that when it comes to immigration, Mr. Khanna is the man.
I hired attorney Khanna for my I-140 case in EB1 category and worked with Diane Lombardo for my case. She gave me immediate feedback on whatever question i have. I filed in premium processing and got my case approved within 2 weeks. I will say She prepared a strong case for me. Thanks to Diane and Rajiv Khanna.
Petitioner is a university that sought to employ the beneficiary permanently in the United States as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Biostatistics. In this respect, the university sought to classify the beneficiary as an outstanding researcher pursuant to section 203(b)(1)(B) of the INA. USCIS initially denied the petition on the grounds that the beneficiary had not achieved the outstanding level of achievement required for being classified as an outstanding researcher.
We filed a petition premium processing for the beneficiary who qualified based on her extraordinary engineering contributions. Her substantial and highly scientific contributions paved the way for commercial manufacturing of flexible displays by major, well-known display manufacturing companies.

We filed a petition premium processing for the beneficiary who qualified based on his original contributions, publication record, featured research work in the media and service as a judge of the works of his research peers.

We supplied the most recent financial report of the petitioner, a letter from the CFO as well as copies of the beneficiaries W2 and most recent pay stubs.
