Attorney Jack Waissen has spent the last six years at the Deuterman Law Group as a strong advocate for his clients. He guides them through the complicated workers’ compensation system and passionately argues in their best interests when they have often been wronged by the system that is supposed to protect them.
Jack joined the Deuterman Law Group in 2016 as an associate attorney in workers’ compensation, after graduating law school and working numerous summer associates positions in Alabama where he gained experience in wrongful death, personal injury, insurance defense, and corporate litigation.
He is actively involved in a number of professional development groups, including the N.C. Bar Association and the N.C. Advocates for Justice (NCAJ). Jack is currently serving a three-year term as a Council Member on the North Carolina Bar Association Worker’s Compensation Section Council. As part of his responsibilities, he is on the Continuing Learning Education (CLE) Committee where he plans CLEs on workers’ compensation for the N.C. Bar Association.
Jack has litigated and won cases at all levels of the N.C. Industrial Commission and the N.C. Court of Appeals.
Originally from Basingstoke, England, Jack leveraged his talent as a tennis player to come to the United States on a tennis scholarship at N.C. Central University. After undergrad, Jack attended the University of Alabama School of Law. He worked as a research assistant for several professors, served as articles editor for The Journal of the Legal Profession, and volunteered at Raise the Bar, a sixth grade mentoring program in Alabama.
Jack was admitted to the N.C. State Bar in 2016. At the Deuterman Law Group, he handles workers’ compensation cases out of both the Greensboro and Winston-Salem offices.
