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 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 U.S. citizenship; by defending many others against deportation, etc. To win difficult cases one has to be a hard worker and a fighter. Mr. Bañuelos knows how to work because in Las Moras, the ranch in Mexico where he was born and where he lived during the years of his childhood, he began to toil on the land with his father when Mr. Bañuelos was about give years old. He’s also a fighter because, given his humble origins, to become an attorney in the U.S. he had to overcome innumerable obstacles.


In Mexico, my parents taught me how to work. Thanks to what I learned there, I’ve been able to take advantage of the innumerable opportunities that this Great country has given me to make something of myself. Thanks to those opportunities, I’ve done what I never even imagined when I lived in Las Moras. The Greatness of this country is that my story isn’t unique. 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 own countries. Jesse J. Bañuelos.
