Shumaker COVID-19 24/7 Helpline & Clio $1 Million Initiative


Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP is a full-service business law firm committed to providing quality legal services to individuals, small businesses, health care providers, non-profit organizations, Fortune 500’s and international corporations. The firm has a long-standing history of community involvement and strongly believes in giving back. In line with its values, and in response to the COVID-19 crisis, Shumaker continues to provide support and guidance to the communities it services. 

To do so, Shumaker's team of experienced and knowledgeable lawyers and advisors are diligently focused on the pandemic, the effects it has on our communities, and the continuous and rapid changes being made to the law. To keep its clients and community abreast of these changes and related issues, it created The Shumaker COVID-19 Client Resources Center to provide the most up-to-date legal and legislative updates on demand. Included in such portal are resources related to maintaining, operating and funding small and large businesses; healthcare; employment; bridge loans; business insurance coverage; creditors’ rights; immigration; force majeure; and more. 

Additionally, to provide clients and the community with the highest level of service, the firm established a 24/7 Shumaker COVID-19 Legal and Legislative Helpline. Please call (800) 427-1493 with any legal or legislative questions you have related to the coronavirus pandemic. Fun fact - depending on when you call, you may reach Spread Your Sunshine Founder Melanie Griffin, an attorney of the Shumaker law firm and Senior Advisor, Business-to-Business Relationships with Shumaker Advisors. 

Beyond the legal resources provided by Shumaker, Clio, a platform that allows attorneys to manage their firms, cases, and clients easily from the cloud, launched a $1 million COVID-19 Legal Relief Initiative. Open to the entire legal community, this fund is designed to help create business continuity and peace of mind for legal professionals, as well as to help insure our communities continue to receive the best legal services possible during this time. If your law firm needs support to get up and running, to run remotely, or more, click here for Clio’s helpful, practice resources and more information about its $1 million initiative.

We hope you, or someone you know in need of assistance, receives the legal and legislative help they need from the Shumaker online resource center and 24/7 helpline and/or Clio. If additional support is needed, however, please see our articles about further support available to small businesses impacted by COVID-19 in our March 18thMarch 23rdMarch 24th and March 25th posts. 

And, if YOU have additional information to provide to the SYS community, we want to share it! Please email Spread Your Sunshine Founder Melanie Griffin at or message Spread Your Sunshine on Facebook or Instagram. We love hearing from you, and together, we can have the greatest impact on our communities and those whom we love most.
