Moving Up & Stepping Down, Pt. 1

We are pleased to announce that Kara Squier, Administrative Law Judge in Fort Worth, has been promoted to Team Lead for the Division’s northern field offices, including those in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton.  Judge Squier has been with the Division since 2013 and is widely regarded as one of the DWC’s best. We congratulate her on the promotion!
Simultaneously, we are saddened to bid farewell to Appeals Panel Judge Rafael Quintanilla, who is retiring at the end of March 2022. The Division has not announced a replacement and posted the job opening on its website on March 24. We certainly wish Judge Quintanilla well.
