Some might say Ron Woessner has a “sixth sense” when it comes to identifying employers’ motivations, and that’s because, for 24 years, he was one. He understands the issues that will encourage your employer to resolve your legal claim as opposed to ignoring it. And, ultimately, that’s the goal: resolution.
Employees often come to Ron after numerous instances of employers ignoring their complaints and concerns, and are looking for some much-needed closure.
Before he turned to advocacy for employee rights, Ron worked with three NASDAQ-listed companies: two as general counsel, and one as CEO. In those capacities, he was in the employer’s shoes and defended against the very claims he brings forth on behalf of employees today. Ron was also Senior Counsel to the Financial Services Committee for the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington D.C. where he served as special advisor to the Committee Chairman for capital formation and fintech matters.
Needless to say, these experiences taught him how to strategize. His leadership in publicly traded companies has given him the unique knowledge of how defense attorneys and businesses think when defending against legal claims. As a result, Ron brings this unique perspective to his legal advocacy for his clients.
Ron understands that negotiation is both an art and a science. He has negotiated hundreds of multi-million-dollar business agreements as well as employee-related agreements such as employment, non-competition, arbitration, stock option, bonus plan, confidentiality, non-disclosure, separation, and severance agreements. He brings this negotiation experience to advocating and negotiating on behalf of his clients.
Ron’s experience as a negotiator and strategist also extends to the public sector. He has served as Senior Counsel to the Financial Services Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., and through this experience, has gained unique insights into how governmental agencies operate. He applies this knowledge to advocate for clients before the EEOC, the Texas Workforce Commission’s Civil Rights Division, the Texas Unemployment Commission, OSHA, and other state and federal agencies.

“I have never had a lawyer nor did I ever think that I would need one. I reached out to Jackson Spencer Law in early April. Ron Woessner took on my case, worked with me at numerous hours assisted me in my hearing for unemployment benefits. The integrity and value this firm holds is truly beyond amazing. After my hearing for unemployment benefits, Ron was amazing. With the information I had provided to him, he helped me win this case. I highly recommend the Jackson Spencer firm to anyone who needs help with employment discrimination or unemployment compensation. Words cannot express how great they are. They treat you as family. Thank you to ALL of you that have helped me at the firm. Especially Ron Woessner. You all have exceeded my expectations. From the bottom of my heart, thank you a thousand times.”

“We were immediately notified by Ron Woessner that he would be helping us with representation at the upcoming appeal hearing with Texas Workforce Commission. We only had a few days to prepare, but Ron helped us to get all the relevant information sorted out in order to present a strong case at the hearing. He put countless hours into helping my husband to prepare and feel comfortable with presenting his case to the hearing officer, and he was granted his benefits after a four month wait. We truly could not have done it without Ron’s help. We will certainly not hesitate to recommend him and the Jackson Spencer Law firm to anyone in need of help.”
