David J. Mott Biography
David began working at Mollica, Gall, Sloan & Sillery in May 2013 as a law clerk. He worked full-time during breaks and part-time while classes at OSU were in session. David officially joined the firm as an associate following his admission to the bar in November 2015, and primarily practices in the areas of civil litigation and real property matters.
David was born near Salem, Ohio, but grew up mostly in Columbus. He moved to Athens in 2002 to attend Ohio University and received a bachelor’s degree in communication, summa cum laude, from OU in 2005. David then worked various jobs in Athens before attending law school at The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law in 2012. He commuted from Athens to Ohio State during his three years at Moritz and graduated magna cum laude in May 2015.
David emphasized alternative dispute resolution during his time at Moritz and also graduated with a certificate in dispute resolution. In addition to taking several classes with the college’s dispute resolution program, he worked extensively on a project to explore new ways to use mediation to help meet the civil legal needs of unrepresented parties in central Ohio. The project’s final report, which David coauthored with two other students, was cited in the Report and Recommendations of the Supreme Court of Ohio Task Force on Access to Justice.
David and his wife Andria reside in Athens with their three giant schnauzers. They are active in their local church, where David volunteers as the music and worship director. David is also credentialed as a minister with the Assemblies of God.
