Hsin-Wei Luang has joined the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) as an administrative law judge (ALJ) in the DWC’s Austin Field Office. She graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with an aerospace engineering degree. She then went to St. Mary’s Law School, where she originally intended to work for the family business after graduation. Instead, she worked for a couple of law firms and then went in-house, working mostly on intellectual property, commercial contracts, and patent litigation and licensing matters. Most recently, she ran her own freelance writing business as well as her own small business advice website. That she is now an ALJ for DWC is proof that life indeed is full of unexpected twists and turns.
