Jamie R. Mogil
Jamie has spent her career amplifying the voices of everyday people, first as a consumer and investor protection attorney, and more recently as a workplace and election rights lawyer.
She has led large-scale class actions and briefed, argued, and won federal appeals recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for her clients and setting new corporate governance standards. Using that foundational experience, Jamie opened her practice to help small businesses from the ground up and advocate for victims of discrimination and sexual harassment.
Over the last decade, Jamie has focused on expanding voter access, securing our elections, and ending gerrymandering in Pennsylvania. In 2012 she was a legal fellow with President Obama’s voter protection campaign where she worked to roll back Pennsylvania’s restrictive voter ID law. She played key roles for Hillary for America’s voter protection team in South Carolina, New York, and Pennsylvania primaries and in North Carolina during the 2016 General Election. In 2018, she headed the largest nonpartisan election protection coalition in Pennsylvania history, working for Common Cause PA. Jamie has trained thousands of poll watchers, workers, and monitors to protect the vote.
For over two years, she was the Resolutions Coordinator for Fair Districts PA, creating and overseeing the passage of municipal resolutions calling for an end to gerrymandering, which affects nearly 70% of Pennsylvania’s population. As Vice President for Government and Social Policy for the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, she helped pass the first voting reforms in 80 years. These reforms include no-excuse absentee voting and assuring Pennsylvania’s voting machines have an auditable, paper trail. She is currently Voter Services Chair for the League of Women Voters of Lower Merion & Narberth.
Jamie is admitted to practice in New York, Pennsylvania, the District Courts of the SDNY, EDNY, NDIL, and the Circuit Courts of the Second, Sixth, and Ninth Circuits.
Jamie grew up and lives in Lower Merion, PA.
Lauren Vidas has spent her career getting her clients to “yes” with a special focus on navigating complex regulatory systems. Lauren has over a decade of experience working in and around Philadelphia City Government.
As a legislative aide for Philadelphia City Council, she successfully sued Mayor Michael Nutter to prevent the closure of numerous city library branches during the Great Recession. She was then hired by the same Mayor Nutter to serve as an Assistant Finance Director, where she worked on a diverse array of policy issues related to zoning, commerce and economic development, taxation, pensions, and the city’s overall financial health. Her years with the City taught her how to effectively navigate its bureaucracies on behalf of clients.
Following her city service, Lauren served as Pennsylvania’s statewide Voter Protection Director for President Obama’s re-election campaign, where she fought for fair and equal voting access for all Pennsylvanians.
As an entrepreneur herself, Lauren understands the challenges of running a business. Following the Obama campaign, Lauren co-founded a successful public strategies firm that served higher education institutions, community and commercial development corporations (CDCs), medical marijuan organizations, nonprofits, as well as small and large business owners throughout the region. In that role, Lauren successfully represented businesses and nonprofits in obtaining state and local financial support, in seeking legislative or regulatory changes and in identifying business development opportunities. She brings those skills and energy to every client she serves.
A committed do-er and change agent, Lauren is a longtime and active volunteer: she served as Chair of the South of South Neighborhood Association (SOSNA) and its Zoning Committee; helped found the Stanton Community Partners; founded and ran the nonprofit beer festival Bloktoberfest; and was a member of the Philadelphia Land Bank Board of Directors. Currently, she serves as a board member for both the Christian Street YMCA and the Dad Vail Regatta. Lauren resides in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood of South Philadelphia with her dapper Puggle, Alfred and her rescue puppy, Louie.
Lauren is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
