Reviewed on January 30, 2023

I currently work as a Legal Administrative Assistant and have found that my experience here varies greatly from others. While some staff members seem to be favored and receive better treatment, others, like myself, struggle to receive support from management. In fact, the management can be quick to throw employees under the bus and provides very little support

Full time

Reviewed on December 18, 2017

There should be more transparency in how pay is determined - people should feel like their efforts are being rewarded. Take more time to listen to employee concerns and complaints - there are some departments that are basically designed for just this reason that don't do a good enough job.

Benefits are solid. Most people are pleasant to work with and you are treated well around the office - office parties are great. Support staff seems to be dedicated. Work-life balance is decent, and the work itself is somewhat diverse, though you do work quite hard at times.

Certain levels of middle management do not seem to understand employee problems well; some people in HR have a similar issue. Pay seems to range a lot when comparing certain positions that should have similar pay grades - you might be unpleasantly surprised to learn what some other people make compared to you.

Current Employee



Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick was founded in 1925 by Harold W. Fraser (1872-1945), a native of Canada, who came to Toledo, Ohio in 1891 and entered the law office of E.W. Tollerton. Mr. Fraser was admitted to Ohio practice in 1894, although he did not become a United States citizen until 1897. In 1896 Marshall and Fraser (the order of names chosen by the flip of a coin) was formed and became the first tenant in the Spitzer Building, located in downtown Toledo, occupying one large room on the fifth floor. Marshall and Fraser was dissolved on January 31, 1925, and Mr. Fraser formed Fraser, Hiett & Wall consisting of three partners and four associates from the old firm: Harold W. Fraser, Stanley J. Hiett, Hampton G. Wall, Alonzo C. Ruihley, George R. Effler, John W. Winn, Jr. and Roscoe W. Shumaker. The firm practiced at 710 Home Bank Building. In 1952 the current firm name was adopted. In 1960, Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick became the second tenant in the newly-constructed Libbey-Owens Ford Building at Madison and Michigan Avenues. In 1981 the firm moved to a renovated warehouse, formerly known as the American Plumbers Supply Company Building. A new entrance was constructed and a new address assigned: 1000 Jackson. In 1985 the ABA Journal awarded Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick First Prize for Civic Commitment for the extensive renovation and landscaping of the firm’s new quarters in Toledo. The prize was one of several awarded as part of the Journal’s first Law Office Design competition. The building sits on three acres and is just northwest of the Lucas County Courthouse. The completed project cost $3.8 million and represents Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick’s commitment to downtown Toledo. A new two-story 15,000 square-foot addition in 1998 raised office space to 83,000 square feet.
