Lake Shore Insurance Agency

Lake Shore Insurance Agency was established in 1971 by Charles Wajahn near Lake Erie’s shore in Euclid, Ohio. It was further developed by now CEO’s, Dan Wajahn and Bill Rodgers. While the first office was located in Euclid, Mayfield became the new permanent home for the agency and has continued to expand to offices throughout Ohio in Chardon, Akron, Northfield, Newton Falls, Summit, Strongsville, Amherst, Mentor, and Chesterland.

Collectively, we have decades of experience in creating customized solutions for our personal insurance, business insurance and employee benefits clients; with our specialties including, Auto Insurance, Home Insurance, Business Insurance and Individual Life Insurance.

We’re an independent insurance agency offering a comprehensive suite of insurance solutions to protect your business and your life from the unexpected. We don’t just sell insurance. We work closely with clients to help them make important and informed decisions every day when it comes to protection and their future.

Because we’re independent, our priority is you – not the insurance company. We represent many different insurance companies which offer a wide variety of coverage options and price points. Our goal is to deliver the right blend of price, coverage, and service.

Our insurance advisors make it their business to know your world inside and out. They are there to help you through all the changes in your life and your business, whether you’re going from renting an apartment to buying a home, adding a partner to your business, getting married, renovating your home, adding a teen driver to your auto policy or revamping your employee benefits plan.
