Bruce and PJ Scheiner - Father and Son

The most important thing that I want them to know when they call my office is that I'm available to speak to each and every person that calls the office - if it's important for them to speak to me, if they say "I'd like to speak to Bruce L. Scheiner" they will speak to me.

My dad knows the law better than anyone else and I've had the opportunity to work with some extraordinary lawyers - I've had the opportunity to try cases with probably one of the best trial lawyers in America and my dad knows the law. He invested the time and the effort to study it and to learn it, to read it and to re-read it. You know, when I would walk into his office in the early days of my practice with a question, he'd point at a book on his bookshelf and say "take that book and find the answer".

It's inspirational to be around PJ, because he's so bright and he's so articulate and you know, he's tried cases all around the state of Florida and has set record verdicts, so I'm so proud to be with him. It's just heartwarming.

Going to work every day and having my mom and dad in the same office is the differentiating factor. The same environment that they create for the 3 of us to work together is the environment that they create for the office as a whole and I think that's one of the incredible things about the office - is that, because we work together as a family, our habits are to interact with others as though we are interacting with our actual blood-family.

It's beautiful - you're with the people you love and admire and we work hard, a lot of times we work 7 days a week and you know, it's real nice to see the fruit of our labor pay off.

My dad and I have always been best friends - I mean, best friends. He was always an example for me, he was a teacher, he had really high expectations, he drove me to do my best in everything that I did, he has perfectly transitioned from being the person that sets the expectations and acting as the mentor and the role model to now, you know, cultivating relationship to where we're equal partners.

You know, you always hope that you child will follow in your footsteps. He was inactualed to be a world class trial lawyer - clients love PJ, because he's available, he talks to them and he really, really cares about them.

We can be who were are, because of the work that my parents did. We can who we are, because of all of the hours and all of the blood, sweat and tears that were invested by my parents and building the firm to what it is today and now we have a lot of good people who come to see us seeking our assistance and seeking our help and if you want to be a good lawyer, the starting point is having good clients. The greatest joy that I get in doing what I do is when a client tells me that I have fought for them as hard as they could have ever hoped for me to fight for them.

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 Brooke Krause
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
I found working with the BLS firm to be a very good experience. They kept me informed on my case, answered all my questions, and were prompt when I needed assistance. Wendy Walker
I was in an accident and BLS was very helpful and gave a lot of support. If I had any questions, it was just a phone call away. Everyone in the office is very nice and helpful. Celeste Thompson
We had a wonderful experience with everyone here. The staff and attorneys were friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate. They inquired about our injuries and our recovery. I would highly recommend their services! Heather Bair Daniels
I have nothing but good things to say about this law firm. I can honestly say that I am very satisfied with their work and my end results. I would absolutely recommend these set of attorneys to anyone. Thank you guys for all the hard work! Merida McDonald
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
I was in a car accident and I seen his Advertisement on TV and I was very impressed of how kind and caring he really is to others and I called them and they took my case and they were very caring and understanding .. they were right on top of everything from being to end and the staff that works in the Fort Myers office were very friendly I would recommend them to a friend or family member if in need of a attorney... Thank you for your services and you made me feel like part of your family. Christina Mauro
