Eastern District of Michigan U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade made several changes to her office’s leadership, The Detroit News reported today.

Those getting promotions are:

  • Jennifer Gorland
    • New post: First Assistant U.S. Attorney
    • Old post: General crimes unit chief
    • Replaces: Terrence Berg
  • Stephanie Dawkins Davis
    • New post: Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney
    • Old post: Trial attorney
    • Replaces: Blondell Morey
  • Daniel Lemisch
    • New post: Criminal division chief
    • Old post: Trial attorney
    • Replaces: Eric Straus

“These staffing changes will help the office carry out our responsibilities to serve the public,” McQuade said in a statement to the newspaper.

The U.S. Attorney also said Elizabeth Larin will stay on as the office’s civil division chief and Patricia Gaedeke will continue serving as the appellate division chief, according to The Detroit News.

McQuade, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Detroit-based office, took office last month. Her office will prosecute suspected al-Qaeda associate Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who allegedly tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas Day. She succeeded Stephen J. Murphy, who resigned as U.S. Attorney in 2008.
