We bid farewell to Judge Phillip Brown, who retired as Hearing Officer with the Division of

Workers’ Compensation late last month. Judge Brown was a Hearing Officer in the Fort Worth

Field Office.

Judge Kara Squier, formerly at the Waco Field Office, has been transferred to Fort Worth to take

over some of its docket. The Division has hired attorney Amber Morgan as the new Waco Hearing

Officer following Judge Kara Squier’s transfer. Ms. Morgan formerly worked at Helton &

Associates in Waco as an advocate for injured workers. She is a graduate of Baylor Law School,

where she received her J.D. in 1999.
