Michael A. Morse and Leslie A. Mariotti to Co-Chair Philadelphia Bar Association’s Federal Courts Committee

February 17, 2016

PITTSBURGH, PA – Michael A. Morse and Leslie A. Mariotti of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP have been named co-chairs of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Federal Courts Committee for the 2016 calendar year. They had previously served as Vice Chairs of the committee in 2015.

The Philadelphia Bar Association, founded in 1802, is the oldest association of lawyers in the United States.   The Federal Courts Committee serves as an informational liaison between the federal courts covering the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the members of the bar association.  The committee also organizes the Federal Bench/Bar Conference held each spring, which not only educates the bar with regard to practice in the courts, but also provides a forum for the interchange of ideas among the bench and bar.

Mr. Morse, a former Assistant District Attorney, serves as Chair of the Qui Tam Practice Group at Pietragallo.  He is also a member of the Government Enforcement, Compliance, and White Collar Litigation Group as well as the Health Care and Litigation Practice Groups.  He has developed a nationwide practice representing whistleblowers, under federal and state false claims acts, who report fraud committed against the government by corporations and individuals. He has represented whistleblowers in some of the most ground-breaking false claims cases in the country, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in recoveries for federal and state taxpayers.  Mr. Morse received his B.A. from the University of Michigan and his J.D. from Emory University School of Law.

Ms. Mariotti is a member of the Employment & Labor Practice Group. She focuses her current practice on representing private and public sector employers in state and federal courts against allegations of discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability and religion, as well as charges of harassment, hostile work environment  and retaliation. Ms. Mariotti frequently counsels employers on workplace issues including hiring, discharge, recruitment and departure of critical employees, drafting and enforcement of restrictive covenants and accommodating disabilities. She received her B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, her M.A. from the University of London and her J.D. from Temple University Beasley School of Law.
