A wide variety of businesses and organizations perform professional, scientific, and technical services for others, including legal services, notaries, title services, accounting, architecture, photography, veterinary services, and much more.

Taggart Law Firm has been in operation since 1876, making it Wayne County’s oldest continuously existing law firm. Critchfield, Critchfield & Johnston has a similarly venerable history in Wooster and continues to offer law services to the community today.

Photographers have set up shop from the early days of daguerreotype photography, when newspaper ads for portraiture by J. D. Vincent (1840), J. M. Jenks (1850), Ross (1850) Dr. M. C. Davis (1852), and J. W. Wyke (1853) appeared. Later in the century, other photographers appeared around Wayne County: V. H. Hamm Art Studio of Shreve, Ohio, Theodore Latimer and J. G. Johnston of Orrville, Ohio, and John Jacob Bringger, Jr. in Mt. Eaton, Ohio.

While lawyers, accountants, and architects have been part of the county’s business landscape for the better part of the past two centuries, newer professional services have popped up around the county as well, from computer programmers to web designers, graphic designers, video producers, and human resources consultants.
