Dear Mr. Khanna
I have a PhD in particle physics from a top US university. I have 9 publications with around 200 citations. I also have postdoc offer from a national lab. Do you think I have a chance of getting EB1-A. Are you taking new cases right now.

This will need a review, Shashank ji. Send resume to frontdesk at sign domain immigration dot com. There is no charge for resume review.

Hello Sir,

I have a MS and BS in Aerospace Engineering from US universities. I have two research grants, multiple (5+)academic scholarships, one entrepreneur scholarship, four journal and conference papers. My work has been cited twice and my thesis work is being used by two separate universities right now. I am a senior member at one of the professional aerospace organizations, AIAA. I have been working with a private aerospace company and have been picked on the H1b lottery this year.
I have another private company that deals with ITAR work and wants me to work for them. The issue, I believe, is a lack of green card, correct? Is there a way to work on ITAR restricted work on H1b? I don't think export control is enough. Please correct me, if I am wrong.
If green card is the only way and given that my nationality is India, is there a way to get a GC within a few months in my situation?

I will have to review the ITAR regs in detail keeping in view the project. Have you looked into getting government exception to work on ITAR restricted project? Green card through EB-1A looks like a long shot, but send me your resume. The email address is in the message above.

Dear Mr. Khanna,

I am double masters from renowned US universities in the field of bioinformatics and Statistics. I have ~6years of work exp in this field and currently I am working for Mayo Clinic (among top 3 best hospitals in US) for more than 4 years. I have 8 peer reviewed articles published with about 25 citations. I have more than 15 abstracts approved for conferences and some as conference articles. In my 4 years at mayo, I have been involved in numerous high profile projects that have been featured multiple times(more than 20 times) in newpaper articles and news bulletins. Mayo has already applied for Green card under EB2 category, but I was also wondering if I can self-petition for an EB1 case.
What are my chances of getting an approval through an EB1 case? Can i email you my resume also?

Thank you

It looks doubtful, but you can send us your resume for a free review.
