Marie A. Latoff, Esq.

Marie, a northern New Jersey native, relocated to the Philadelphia area in 1998.

Marie earned a B.A. degree in Political Science from the University of Delaware and a J.D. degree from The American University, Washington College of Law. She is admitted to the bar in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

After a Judicial Clerkship in the New Jersey Appellate Division for the Hon. Warren Brody, Marie began her career in private practice as a general litigator. After several years, she started specializing in labor and employment law, litigating all types of employment-related claims on behalf of employers, including discrimination, sexual harassment, whistleblower, retaliation, defamation, breach of contract, restrictive covenant, and wage and hour claims.

Marie also provided employers with advice, counseling and training on a variety of subjects, such as performance counseling, managing a unionized workforce, investigating and resolving complaints, affirmative action, diversity, disability accommodation, compensation, terminations, employment contracts, and downsizings. In addition, she developed and reviewed employment manuals, policies, contracts, and procedures.

After a number of years in private practice, Marie went in-house at a financial services giant in New Jersey. While there, she transferred to the company's Philadelphia-area office.

In 2005, Marie founded VERITA, LLC in response to the growing demand for neutral investigators as both in-house and outside employment attorneys searched for alternatives to conducting investigations themselves out of concern for becoming fact witnesses. This demand, along with the steady growth of outsourced Human Resources services as companies trimmed their workforces, has helped VERITA, LLC's niche business thrive and grow in an extremely competitive business climate.

In addition to her work at VERITA, LLC, Marie is on the Advisory Board for Seton Hall Law School HR Law Certification, and is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Pennsylvania Bar Association.

Marie is also a member of 100+ Women Who Care Chester County.
