This is wild violet. In general, wild violets are native and they do have wildlife value. They are the larval food source for fritillary butterflies.
I'm not sure if you are aware of the Pesticide Ban in Montgomery County which includes chemical lawn herbicides.
Go to their website for additional information,

Thanks I am aware of the ban and respect it. I’m interested in trying overseeding this fall

Overseeding sounds like a good idea. Although your lawn looks nice and healthy.
