Back to 2008 Main Page

2008 winners were selected from more than 50 applicants in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Glades, Charlotte and DeSoto counties.

They volunteered time and money for the numerous community organizations and causes so critical to the area's welfare, including Special Olympics, Salvation Army, Big Brother/Big Sisters, Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Abuse Counseling and Treatment, feeding the homeless, road and beach cleanup, stocking food banks, visiting nursing homes, collecting holiday presents for the needy and contributing to the fight against world hunger and poverty.

Applications were based on written essays submitted by graduating eighth- and twelfth-grade students. Members of the firm awarded 17 high-school and 9 junior-high school students with framed certificates at their school graduation ceremonies. Winners also were invited to join the firm at a summer luncheon and received U.S. Savings bonds.

Client Reviews
Bruce L. Scheiner and his team were the most friendly people I've ever met they genuinely cared about me... I highly recommend them
★★★★★
I was really satisfied with services I received. Bruce is not only an attorney, but like family. He got me three times what I thought I would receive and was always there when I needed an answer on something. I'd say he is the best attorney I have dealt with in my 68 years. Harry Zulauf

BLS was incredibly helpful with my case, even during the hard challenging periods of my case Bruce & PJ were always just a call away. Even though they couldn't answer my call at that direct moment, they ALWAYS made a point to call me back. The staff at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner were always helpful and friendly, if they didn't have the answer they would always call me back with what I needed to know. Robert Drawdy
