Circuit Judge

The DWC’s new Austin-based Administrative Law Judge, Hsin-Wei Luang, started on June 26.  Judge Luang received a degree in engineering from the University of Illinois, then her law degree from St. Mary’s School of Law in 1997. She combined her legal acumen and engineering background for a career in technology, business, and intellectual property.  

Among her prior employment, Judge Luang served as senior counsel for Honda and vice-president of IP at Lone Star Circle of Care.  She owns a business & technical writing service, and since May 2021 she has used her expertise in technological and legal writing to produce a blog helping entrepreneurs start and run small businesses.  We congratulate her on accepting the position with the DWC and certainly look forward to reading her decisions.
