Russ Molot

Russ graduated from the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law in 1988 and has been practicing in Ottawa ever since. After his call to the bar in 1990 he has worked for both small and medium sized firms and has developed a considerable practice in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and civil litigation.

Russ has appeared at both trial and appellate level courts in Ontario as well as various administrative bodies such as the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Coroner’s Inquests, the Aviation Appeals Tribunal and the Employment Insurance Appeals Tribunal.

Most of the litigation matters that Russ has worked on have been high profile cases including wrongful death actions, cases against the City of Ottawa and OC Transpo and is presently representing clients in the class action against General Motors relating to the defective ignition switch.

Over the years clients have received millions of dollars in settlements because of Russ’s work.

In his off time Russ likes to act and has been involved in community theatre in Ottawa, the Lawyers Play at the Great Canadian Theatre Company and has also acted in movies and commercials. He decided to become a lawyer so he could have a captive audience when making court appearances.

Despite warnings from Russ’ family law clients 24 years ago, Russ has been married to his beautiful wife for almost ¼ century. They have three fantastic kids who are the apple of his eye. All three teenagers ensure that he could never get a swelled head.
