Jesse J. Bañuelos has won thousands of difficult accident and immigration cases. For more than 30 years, he has fought for the rights of thousands of people by obtaining 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 removal or deportation; etc. To win difficult cases requires hard work and tenacity. Mr. Bañuelos knows how to work because in Las Moras, the ranch in Mexico where he was born and where he lived during his childhood, he started toiling on the fields with his father when Mr. Bañuelos was five years old. He is also a fighter because, given his very humble origins, to become an attorney in the US, he had to overcome innumerable obstacles.


In Mexico, my parents taught me to work hard, and to value and respect honest work. Thanks to what I learned in Mexico, I’ve been able to take advantage of the countless opportunities that this great 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 because it’s also the story of countless other immigrants who, like me, came to this country from very 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.
