Jesse J. Bañuelos has won thousands and thousands of difficult accident and immigration cases. For more than 30 years, he has fought for the rights of thousands and thousands of people by obtaining just compensation for accident victims; by helping many to get a green card; by helping others who had a green card 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, etc. To win difficult cases one has to be hard-working and a fighter. Mr. Bañuelos knows how to work because in Las Moras, the ranch in Mexico where he was born and where he spent his childhood, he learned to work by toiling in the fields with his father when Mr. Bañuelos was a young boy. He’s also a fighter because, given his origins, to become an attorney in the US he had to overcome innumerable obstacles.


In Mexico, my parents taught me how to work, and the value of an honest day’s work. Thanks to what I learned in Mexico, I’ve been able to take advantage of the countless opportunities that this country has given me. Thanks to those opportunities, I’ve done what I could never have even imagined when I lived in Las Moras. The greatness of this country is that my story is not unique. It’s also the story of countless other immigrants who, like me, came to this country from humble origins, and who, like me, have also achieved what they never even dared to dream when they lived in their country. Jesse J. Bañuelos.
