Louis-Joseph Moll (August 24, 1816 – August 5, 1872) was a physician and political figure in Quebec. He represented Berthier in the Legislative Assembly of Quebec from 1867 to 1871 as a Conservative.[1]

He was born in Notre-Dame de Montréal, Lower Canada, the son of Jean-Marie Moll and Catherine-Louise Finchley, and was educated at the Collège de Montréal and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1841, he married Marie-Joséphine-Valérie, the daughter of Joseph Bondy, dit Douaire. He returned to Quebec in 1845 and entered the practice of medicine at Berthier. Moll was a justice of the peace and a commissioner for the trial of small causes. He was defeated when he ran for reelection in 1871. Moll died in Berthier at the age of 55.[1]
