Attorney Adelia Mohan was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and raised in Dallas, Texas. Growing up, Adelia had a significant interest in how the legal world interacted with her community.

Only when Adelia was in studying in Pittsburgh, did her community passion materialize in a desire to enter the legal field. Alongside other students, she helped found University of Pittsburgh’s Pre – Law Phi Alpha Delta, and continued to see to its growth by serving on the executive board and chairing the community service committee throughout undergrad. Also while attending the University of Pittsburgh, Adelia was the assistant editor for the Arts and Entertainment section of the Pitt News and helped develop the skill of many young writers.
Upon receiving a scholarship to Capital University Law School, an institution known for its focus on public interest and service work, Adelia ended up in Columbus, Ohio. There she was the programming chair for Capital Equality Alliance, and was the law clerk supervisor in the Adult Felony Unit of Franklin County’s Public Defender’s Office throughout law school. After graduation and admission to the bar, Adelia continued to work in the criminal field but was also cross trained to practice domestic relations. She has practiced in several counties throughout the state of Ohio, and has enjoyed great success in representing her clients. Adelia Mohan prides herself in being a fearless, zealous advocate in achieving client goals. After successfully representing a significant amount of criminal and domestic clients she now is taking skills to fight for the little guy – the voiceless, the overwhelmed, and the frustrated.
