Mollica Gall Sloan & Sillery Co. LPA traces its origins to Bolin & Walker, founded in Athens in the 1950s. After John W. Bolin’s elevation to the Athens County Common Pleas Court bench in 1961, William Parker Walker and Gerald A. Mollica formed Walker & Mollica in 1963. After serving two terms as Athens County Prosecuting Attorney, in 1969 Homer B. Gall, Jr., joined the firm, which became known as Walker, Mollica, & Gall. Gall left in 1991 to become a judge of the Athens County Common Pleas Court.
With the addition of Steven T. Sloan in 1973, James D. Sillery in 1976, and Robert J. Gall in 1982, and following the departure in 1982 of William Parker Walker, the firm took its present name. Since then, Andrew J. Mollica joined the firm in 1989, as did Cherie H. Gall in 1991. George P. McCarthy became an associate in 2002 and, after becoming a partner in 2011 the firm took the name of Mollica, Gall, Sloan, Sillery & McCarthy Co., L.P.A.
In 2013, McCarthy left to become a judge of the Athens County Common Pleas Court, and the firm’s name returned to Mollica Gall Sloan & Sillery Co. LPA. The firm welcomed David J. Mott in 2015 who became a partner in 2020.
