David Skrobot was born in the Cleveland area and came to Columbus to attend Capital University. While there, David was a member of the Varsity Wrestling Team and served as President of the Student Senate. He graduated summa cum laude in 1969.
After college David began teaching English at Ohio University until he was drafted into the armed forces, spending the next four years in the United States Navy. Following his service, David enrolled in law school at the Moritz School of Law at The Ohio State University. He graduated in 1977 and began practicing that year.
It was at this time that David began his thirty year association with George Fisher. George was a partner with the firm of Krumm Schwenker, which David joined as an associate in 1977. He became a partner in 1981. Throughout those thirty years, the firm configuration has changed several times, and in 1998 the firm began operating as Fisher & Skrobot, LLC, now Fisher, Skrobot & Sheraw, LLC. Between 1981 and 1990, David also served on the Whitehall Board of Education and was President of the Board for eight of those nine years.

His daughter is employed by the History Department at The Ohio State University and his son is a professional musician currently on tour with the country music performer, Pat Green. David lives on a farm in Utica, Ohio with his wife, Georgette, five stray dogs, two stray cats, and one French Alpine goat. His passion in life, after his wife and the practice of law, is old time country/Bluegrass music. His idol is the guitar player, Norman Blake. David plays acoustic guitar to relax, loves to read and cook, and is learning to travel.
