All three prosecutors were sworn in on October 15 before Chief U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn.

Mr. Thomas, who will focus on immigration cases, formerly served as an Attorney at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division. Before that, he served as a Law Clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit under the Honorable Catharina Haynes, and for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas under the Honorable Zack Hawthorn. He earned his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and his J.D. from New York University School of Law.

An alumna of  the University of Texas and  Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Ms. Requenez returns to the Northern District of Texas from the Southern District of Texas, where she prosecuted a range of violent crimes. During a previous stint in Dallas, she served as an AUSA here at the U.S. Attorney’s Office and as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney for Dallas County Criminal District Attorney’s Office.

“I’m proud to have these excellent attorneys on our teams in Dallas and Fort Worth,” said Nealy Cox. “I know they will fight for justice in North Texas.”
