A little about us.
The Juris Agency was founded in 2006 and has grown over the years from our humble beginnings in Westlake, OH, followed by a decade in Lakewood, OH, and now Rocky River, OH. The agency is a first-generation, family-owned independent insurance agency. It was built from scratch and owes its existence to our clients, partners, and staff. Our carriers and process have evolved over the years, and we are committed to continuing to push ourselves to implement technology that serves our clients.
More than just an independent agency.
We are an independent agency, which you may see frequently as the reason that an agency is unique. Given how many are saying it, is it really that unique? We are independent but we are far more unique than just that.
The Juris Agency wants insurance to be better. A well-written insurance policy is a game-changer following a crisis. The policy is just a tool or a commodity. How it is crafted and the service that is provided by the people who work with it can make worlds of difference.
We serve our clients because giving sound advice is the right thing to do. We serve our clients because we care about people and doing the job well. We are not afraid to advocate for our insured and find solutions to their problems regardless of the commission. We provide honest insurance advice and deliver the risk management service you would expect in a corporate board room to families at kitchen tables and small business owners.
Meet Our Principal Agent, Shawn Juris
I founded the Juris Agency in 2006 and continue to handle every aspect of the business. Initially it was the opportunity to build my own business that drew me to insurance. After being told to be careful from the time I could walk, risk management was a natural fit.
Along the way I discovered that being an agent provided so much more than I’d expected. An insurance agent is placed right in the middle of so many events, from buying houses and cars to getting married or starting a family or a business. In each of these cases, a trusted agent can make all the difference. It should not be just about transactions—it can be an opportunity to build a relationship and to offer advice and guidance. After 15 years of working with many of our clients, I can now look back with them over how far they’ve come. I look forward to working with my clients for many more years.
As someone who always wants to understand how things work, the insurance industry has provided me with an opportunity to delve into a wide range of topics. Just like insurance finds its way into so many life events, it’s also tied to legislation, technology, property maintenance, the economy, community events, transportation, and even what pet you own. These topics constantly evolve and this makes it essential to have a strong intellectual curiosity to fit them together.
I have been actively involved in a range of activities, including five years as a councilmember in the City of Lakewood and several legislative trips to Washington, DC, and I have been involved in the Lakewood and Rocky River Chambers of Commerce. I also founded Pillars, a civic group that digs into a variety of topics and has run the Lakewood Wing Crawl since 2006.
I live in Westlake, OH and spend much of my free time with my wife and kids.
