Mr. Mohney has been engaged in the general practice of law in DuBois, Pennsylvania since 1993. After working in a law firm in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania after his graduation from the Dickenson School of Law in 1991, he accepted the opportunity to return to his hometown. After working for a long-established law firm in DuBois for 10 years, during which time he was a part-time assistant district attorney for Clearfield County, he opened his own law office in 2003. During his time as a part-time prosecutor, Mr. Mohney worked closely with law enforcement in all stages of criminal prosecutions. This experience as a prosecutor has assisted him in providing legal advice and counsel to persons who are not only being investigated, but have been formally charged, for having allegedly committed criminal acts. Mr. Mohney has the unique experience of having successfully prosecuted cases to juries and successfully defended clients at trials- both jury and non-jury. He has successfully argued criminal cases in front of the Superior Courts of Pennsylvania and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

 While the emphasis of his practice is representing people charged with crimes, Mr. Mohney also welcomes the opportunity to represent people who have been injured in accidents. For the first portion of his legal career, Mr. Mohney was primarily counsel hired by an insurance company to represent persons alleged to have been the cause of accidents in which another person was injured. He now focuses his personal injury practice on representing persons injured. He has handled well into the hundreds of real estate transactions, representing both sellers and buyers. Mr. Mohney routinely assists clients assemble their estate planning documents, and represents person representatives in fulfilling their duties to administrator estates. Matters of starting a business and general civil litigation round out his practice. Mr. Mohney prides himself on striving to work closely with each client to deliver timely, professional and personalized legal advice and services.

When he is not working, Mr. Mohney is an avid road bicycler and mountain biker, as well as an alpine skier. He has been involved as a coach with Little League baseball from 2009 through 2016. He also enjoys fly fishing, reading and cooking.
