District 163

mike zabel

Mike Zabel is a lifelong resident of Delaware County who lives in Drexel Hill with his wife, Lauren, their two-and-a-half-year-old son, John, and infant daughter, Lila.  He is an attorney who works in private practice. Mike previously served as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, and also as a teacher at the middle school, high school, and college level. He sits on the board of the charitable organization SJP Man For Others, Inc.

The oldest of six children, Mike grew up in Havertown, where he graduated from St. Denis School, before heading to St. Joseph’s Prep for high school and College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.  He earned his Master’s Degree in Classics from Indiana. After seven years of teaching Latin and Greek, Mike headed to Temple University Beasley School of Law, where he met his soon-to-be wife. He graduated in the top 10% of his law school class (although Lauren did even better!) and was elected class graduation speaker.  Mike and Lauren have lived in Drexel Hill for twelve years, and are proud to be raising their children there.

Mike takes issues that affect the working class to heart, from ensuring quality education for all, to making labor unions stronger, to cutting taxes for regular Pennsylvanians while holding big corporations accountable. He will also seek to find safe and inexpensive solutions to the opioid crisis, to create legislation that protects our environment, and ensure that no one lives in fear of a mass shooting.

Pennsylvanians understand justice and equality; after all, the Declaration that says that all of us are created equal was signed right here. Mike will take that to heart.
