Hi, i am filing my case in EB1-B by end of this month.

Would like to know from experts here who have achieved success in this category with low citation counts especially at Nebraska (maybe less than 100. Most lawyers whom i have spoken to and online research suggest anything less than 100 is a bit dicey for EB-1 cases going to NSC).

However i have seen many get approval with less than that number. So wanted to know what docs/tips have your lawyers used to overcome this #?

you can try secondary citations if your original work has critical input on work of folks who cited you

I was recently approved (EB-1B, less than 100 citations, NSC, PP)

You need to post your profile here for evaluation. To overcome your low citations, your petition must emphasize on your other strengths. Three years of (post PhD) research experience, publications in good journals, and review activities (journals, conferences, competitions) in addition to very strong independent letters are good enough to crack EB-1B if your petition is well written. Needless to say, in addition to these things, you must either be a tenure-track faculty or a scientist/researcher in a good company.

secondary citation is counting citations of papers that were majorly inspired by yours. This is used by lawfirms all the time but you do have to show your work was rockbed of paper/s that cited you (and hence their citation works as secondary)

No...unfortunately most of my citations are mere references highliting a concept, table, graph etc. Not many are majorly inspired by my work. What do I do?

Think of creative ways to argue. EB1 is as much as about being creative with what you have as about anything else.
