MEET OUR FOUNDER
Namdar Law PLLC is headed by its founder, Mora Namdar
Before returning to private practice, Ms. Namdar was appointed by the President of the United States to perform the duties of the Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs. Prior to taking that role, Ms. Namdar served as the Vice President of Legal, Compliance, and Risk at the United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM) and as a Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of State working on a variety of global issues. Ms. Namdar worked closely with the White House National Security Council and other interagency counterparts to create and implement effective policy supporting US national security and international human rights interests. Previously, Ms. Namdar worked for Occidental Petroleum (Oxy), a Fortune 500 company, reporting directly to the V.P of Government Affairs and for the Voice of America advising on National Security and Policy.
A Texas native, Ms. Namdar has worked with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and has extensive experience in domestic and international issues. She has successfully represented clients which include individuals, corporations, political candidates, non-profit organizations, and businesses. Ms. Namdar is licensed to practice law in Texas and Washington D.C. and was the founding Editor-in-Chief of the American University's National Security Law Brief. It was in this groundbreaking publication that Ms. Namdar correctly predicted the failure of the JCPOA and became the first person to lay out an effective Iran policy which advanced US National Security interests, global stability and the Iranian people's human rights. This policy paper included a never before articulated argument of 1) no failed deals or engagement with the Iranian regime, 2) no war, and 3) supporting the will of the Iranian people via a combination of smart sanctions like those imposed to end apartheid in South Africa and a non-violent referendum via the same type of "No" campaign that brought an end to Pinochet's rule in Chile. She has continued to make groundbreaking arguments which have become part of the common conversation in policy making circles. She has been published in Newsweek, the Hill, the National Interest, 1945 and more.
Ms. Namdar is currently serving as a Senior Fellow at the American Foreign Policy Council. She has worked on human rights issues for many years and was invited to speak about human rights during the United Nations General Assembly by the U.S. State Department in New York City in 2018. In her spare time, Ms. Namdar is an avid painter.
