Rebecca E. Shope

Partner, Diversity Committee Co-Chair

A natural litigator, Rebecca concentrates her practice in the areas of labor and employment, litigation, and family law. She represents private and public entities in a variety of litigation, internal investigations, risk management, and traditional labor matters, such as defending employers in discrimination, harassment, retaliation, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and wrongful discharge disputes. In addition to litigating, Rebecca also assists employers in navigating complex employment laws and regulations. A proactive counselor, she seeks to develop a deep understanding of her clients’ businesses to help anticipate and prevent workplace disputes before they arise.

On the family law side of her practice, Rebecca represents clients in divorce and child custody matters. Her training in collaborative divorce law matters, paired with her connections to the judges in Northwest Ohio, lend to her familiarity and comfort when going to court.

In addition to having a busy law practice, Rebecca enjoys supporting the Toledo community and spending time with her husband and two children.
