about DavidX+X+

Public service and people define the foundation of David Moser’s practice. David is passionate about helping public officials and government entities navigate daily legal issues that spring up while serving and protecting citizens.  He strives to offer friendly, focused, and creative results for public clients throughout Ohio. 

As an Associate at Isaac Wiles, David has represented villages, cities, townships, counties, and state agencies on matters ranging from daily advice to federal litigation.  Early into his IW tenure, he second-chaired a three-day jury trial in federal court involving hostile work environment claims brought against a county client, resulting in a unanimous jury verdict in favor of the client and dismissing all claims.  David’s labor and employment work for government clients has also taken place outside of the courtroom while successfully defending against charges brought before the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  Further, David regularly issues advice and offers training to local officials on open meetings requirements, public records, public contracts, zoning and land use regulations, personnel policies and social media strategies. 

A former prosecutor at both city and county levels, David has extensive courtroom experience.  He enthusiastically provides advice to police agencies and has represented law enforcement officers in Section 1983 litigation.  At IW, he currently serves as Assistant Law Director for several municipalities and prosecutes misdemeanors in mayor’s courts across Central Ohio.  He also represents judges in professional liability matters assigned by the Department of Administrative Services.   

Outside of the firm, David enjoys spending time with his family and dog, Nolan.  An avid reader, cook, and aspiring workout enthusiast, David is presently preparing for his first sprint-distance triathlon.
