      As an attorney who practices in the O-1 field, I must respectfully question the value or utility of template O-1 letters, or of placing too much reliance on recommendation letters at all, as opposed to other types of evidence listed in the O-1 regulations. In my experience, USCIS examiners have tended to downplay the value of these letters compared to other, more objective evidence, such as published material about the person's achievements in professional journals or major newspapers; as well as prizes and awards in the field, membership in professional organizations requiring outstanding achievement, etc. This is not to say that peer letters are of no value. That is certainly not the case.

      Each O-1 case should be regarded as entirely unique. Trying to fit them into a pattern is not usually a productive approach.
