O-1 for extraordinary ability
“As a young architect who just graduated from school and was on opt status, I knew that my case was very challenging from the first beginning, since I didn’t have a large amount of valuable materials as foundation for the case. However, I am glad that I found Jane after talking to my friends. The high success rate of this law firm gave me a lot of confidence.
Unlike the lawyers I consulted with before, Jane didn’t lose confidence on my case during the consultation session. Instead, she assessed my materials thoroughly and advised possible ways to improve my background, including a detailed portfolio that presents my professional image. Jane is very professional and helpful. She helped me fasten the preparation process efficiently.
The whole application process for O-1 visa was not easy. But it was also a review process for my previous work and career. I was surprised and grateful that my application was approved extremely fast. Thanks for the help Jane and her team provided during my application!”
Chinese architect Siqi Yang had her first O-1 visa application approved in September 2017. Ms. Yang obtained her Master’s degree in Advanced Architectural Design in May 2016 from Columbia University. Our office helped her change status from F-1 (OPT) to O-1. This case was approved in six (6) days via regular non-expedite processing and without a Request for Evidence (RFE). Ms. Yang writes:
