Jesse J. Bañuelos has won thousands of difficult accident and immigration cases. For more than 25 years, Mr. Bañuelos has fought for the rights of thousands of people by obtaining fair and just compensation for accident victims; by helping many to get a green card; by helping others who had it, to keep it when they were about to lose it because of a criminal conviction, a violation of the immigration laws, etc.; by helping others to obtain US citizenship, by defending many others against deportation, removal, etc. To win difficult cases requires hard work and tenacity. Mr. Bañuelos is hardworking because his father taught him to work by laboring on the land when Mr. Bañuelos was only 5 years old. In Las Moras, a small ranch in Mexico where Mr. Bañuelos was born and where he spent his childhood, everyone had to start working at a very early age because life was very hard. Furthermore, Mr. Bañuelos is tenacious because, given his very humble origins, to become an attorney in the US he had to overcome innumerable obstacles.


In Mexico, my father taught me to work at a very early age. Thanks to that lesson, I’ve been able to take advantage of the innumerable opportunities that this amazing country has given me. Thanks to these opportunities, I’ve done what I could never have even imagined when I lived in Mexico. The greatness of this country is that my story is not unique because it’s also the story of innumerable other immigrants who, like me, came to this country from very humble origins and who, like me, have also achieved what they could never have even dared to dream when they lived in their country. Jesse J. Bañuelos.
