How important is to get independent letters for EB1-OR?
I am having some trouble getting folks who do not know me writing me letters, My lawyer (company hired) told me today that those letters are not even necessary? is that ture? Unfortunately, the lawyer is always too busy to answer any of my questions.

one year on my current job in a pharmaceutical company.
13 papers (3 first author, 8 second author (the first is my post-dco boss) and 2 third)
papers have been cited about 60 times.

awards in graduate school as students only.
