Dr. Pham filed for EB-1 status as an alien of extraordinary ability for her expertise in the field of education, primarily in the research of progressive instructional practices and policy. Her work has impacted and contributed to a better educational experience for students.


Dr. Pham’s case was challenging because she had no recommendation letters to help support her case. Thus, in order to really highlight her strengths, we supplied lots of primary documentary evidence of her various achievements and what they signified in her field. For example, not only did we discuss Dr. Pham’s receipt of two Fulbright scholarships, but the prestige of the Fulbright program in academia overall.

Dr. Pham’s case was initially issued a request for evidence (RFE) that asked for further documentation regarding published materials featuring Dr. Pham. To respond to this, we not only provided every instance that Dr. Pham and her work were featured in the media, but also the significance of the article and the distinguished nature of the media outlet publishing the article. This helped prove that Dr. Pham was featured in major media of a distinguished reputation.

The RFE also requested evidence regarding the associations that Dr. Pham was a member of. In order to prove that Dr. Pham clearly met this category, we provided evidence of Dr. Pham’s membership in numerous reputable organizations through membership cards and the association’s bylaws.

Additionally the RFE requested evidence that Dr. Pham’s work as an editor at peer-reviewed journals went beyond that which was normal for someone in her field. To demonstrate this, we provided the impact factors of the journals, as well as demonstrated that she had worked for several leading publishers. On top of this, we provided information regarding every instance a journal had solicited Dr. Pham for her editing expertise.


Dr. Pham’s RFE was submitted, and her EB-1 petition was approved shortly after.
