At Patel Law Group, nothing brings us a stronger sense of satisfaction and accomplishment than when we succeed in helping a client overcome obstacles in the immigration process. When they receive their visa or are informed that they have finally become citizens, we know we've done our job.
One of our most recent victories involves a client by the name of Dr. Takanari Inoue, a Japanese national whose desire to immigrate to the United States began during a visit to Texas during his college years.

Takanari visited his aunt in Texas when he was in college and was intrigued by how everything was jumbo-sized: "the highways, the national flags, and the hamburgers" he says in an essay he wrote for the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science. When he returned to the U.S. for postdoctoral training at Stanford University years later, he says "why I stayed in the U.S. after my postdoctoral work had directly to do with the U.S. jumbo sizes: I witnessed the scientific independence for young investigators here to be grander than that of my native Japan."
Dr. Inoue came to Patel Law Group while he was on a J-1 visa and working at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Our team helped him file an EB-1 petition – one of the toughest business immigration cases for which to obtain an approval. We obtained this visa for him without difficulty and then filed for green cards for him, his wife, and their two children. Takanari then encountered problems with the Consulate because his wife is of Chinese origin, but our firm was able to assist him with these issues, as well.
Today, Takanari Inoue resides in Maryland with his family and is able to live the American Dream of "jumbo-size" opportunities and possibilities. Our team at Patel Law Group is proud to have played a part in his story and looks forward to helping others have the same success in years to come.
