Jason Torchinsky is a partner at Holtzman Vogel, specializing in campaign finance, election law, lobbying disclosure and issue advocacy groups. In addition to his practice counseling clients on compliance with campaign finance, ethics laws, lobbying disclosure and election laws, Jason has served as lead counsel in a number of litigation matters dealing with First Amendment freedoms and election law and redistricting issues.

Jason has filed numerous cert petitions, jurisdictional statements, and amicus briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court.  At the Supreme Court, Jason has won a summary reversal from a redistricting case out of Michigan, and was counsel in a rarely granted petition for cert before judgment in another redistricting matter.  His amicus briefs on behalf of the NRSC and NRCC was cited in the Court’s opinion in McCutcheon v.

Oliver Roberts, an associate with Holtzman Vogel, focuses his practice on Constitutional Law, Tax Law, Political Law, Government Investigations, and Commercial Litigation.
Oliver's experience includes winning two oral arguments in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. His most recent victory resulted in a precedential opinion breaking from 99 years of Tax Court and appellate court precedent regarding taxpayer compliance with the 90-day deficiency petition filing deadline. His first victory in the Third Circuit overturned a Tax Court decision that imposed a six-figure tax bill on his clients. He has also advised clients in international and domestic contract disputes.
Prior to joining the firm, Oliver was a litigation associate with two of the largest AMLAW 100 firms and the founder of a tech startup.
