On Tuesday, Governor Larry Hogan appointed Chung Ki Pak as the Chief Administrative Law Judge. Pak will take the place of retired Judge Thomas Dewberry who held the position since 2002.
Pak received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Auburn University and a law degree from the Catholic University of America.
“I have confidence that Mr. Pak will be a strong advocate for the law and will serve the citizens of Maryland admirably,” said Governor Hogan.
Pak has previous experience with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and was an Administrative Patent Judge for 23 years. He also works as a Montgomery County License Commissioner, is a member of the Koreatown Planning Committee, and has served on several Asian Pacific American advisory committees.
