Raleigh Office

TEL (919) 719-4753

FAX (919) 873-1814

Born and raised in Charlotte, Latasia brings her passion for advocacy to Raleigh practicing both workers compensation and employment law. She works with insurance carriers, third-party administrators, and employers, including but not limited to, retailers and healthcare entities. Latasia enjoys identifying the intersection of workers’ compensation and employment law and has experience with motions and hearings before the North Carolina Industrial Commission.

In her workers’ compensation practice, Latasia represents employers, insurance carriers, and third-party administrators across a broad range of industries including retail and hospitality, construction, healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation. Latasia has experience litigating the full range of workers’ compensation claims including injury by accident, occupational disease, death claims, traumatic brain injuries, and even claims involving permanent and total disability. She routinely negotiates favorable settlements through mediation as well as informal negotiations. When unable to reach a settlement agreement, Latasia zealously advocates for her clients’ interests before all levels of the North Carolina Industrial Commission from the administrative forum to the Full Commission.

In contrast, Latasia’s employment law practice is dedicated to compliance and litigation avoidance. Latasia provides conscientious and personalized counsel to business owners, public employers, in-house counsel, and human resources professionals on a variety of employment law issues such as, Title VII claims of discrimination and harassment, retaliation, ADA accommodations and leave policies, and more. Latasia has also been critical in spearheading the development of Teague Campbell’s Employment Law Workshops. These fee-based workshops are offered to public and private sector employers to mitigate risk and address underlying issues that lead to employment law claims.

Latasia’s compassionate nature can be seen in her work as well as her commitment to her community. She is volunteer with the Capital Area Teen Court where she presides over teen court sessions and conducts trainings for the program’s youth attorneys. The mission of Teen Court is to focus on restorative justice and to reduce recidivism. Latasia has volunteered with Dress for Success Triangle NC, which serves employed and unemployed women in the Triangle by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools for women to thrive in the workplace. Latasia also volunteers regularly with various advocacy programs, including those at her alma maters Campbell Law School and Furman University. Latasia is an active member of Teague Campbell’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Most recently, she organized the inaugural Black History Month book drive in 2020, which resulted in the donation of 150 books to Southeast Raleigh Elementary School.

While Latasia has made Raleigh her second home, she will always be loyal to the Queen City and all that it has to offer. In her free time, she enjoys attending Panthers games, traveling, and trying new restaurants. Latasia loves to scope out a good barbeque restaurant and admits that her guilty pleasure is a barbecue sandwich with coleslaw and a little hot sauce from B’s in Greenville.
