Mottl was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Miroslav Václav Josef Mottl (1899-1945) and Anna Huml (1903-1990), a couple of Czech descent. His father, an immigrant from Po?aply, died from chronic valvular heart disease when he was 11. His mother, born in Pittsburgh to parents from Kva? and Mýto, remarried to Václav Schovánek (1907-1987) from Kladno. Mottl attended the University of Notre Dame for which he played baseball in 1955.
He is a lawyer, and served in the city council of Parma, Ohio from 1960 to 1966 and the Ohio state legislature from 1967 until 1975, before serving in the United States House of Representatives from 1975 to 1983. A conservative Democrat, Mottl was an ally of Ronald Reagan's legislative agenda.
He lost the Democratic primary to Ed Feighan in 1982, thereby losing his seat. He then returned to local politics, serving on the Parma school board from 1985 until 1986, and as president of the school board in 1986, until he was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives, where he served until 1997.
He now lives in North Royalton, Ohio, and was an unsuccessful candidate for Mayor of North Royalton in 1999.
