Giving Back

Since the humble beginnings of our firm over 40 years ago, Southwest Florida has been our home. Now, decades later and with multiple offices spanning the tri-county area, it is where our associates and staff live and raise their families. We are therefore inextricably tied to this place and its people—it has become a part of us, and we a part of it.

Always mindful of how Southwest Florida supported the Firm’s development through nearly half a century, Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner tirelessly dedicates its resources to giving back. This is why the distinctive “BLS” logo is attached to so many community initiatives, events, and local organizations.

Today, we fight hard to foster growth, education, civic engagement, and public safety here in our own backyard, and the Firm is at the forefront in supporting numerous worthwhile causes. Whether it’s donating office space for the opening of MADD’s SWFL chapter, rewarding student volunteers with our annual Make a Difference Award, supplying food and supplies to local law enforcement at DUI checkpoints, staffing and supporting the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition, or nearly drowning ourselves in gallons of ice water for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, we set a high bar for community involvement and strive to raise that bar every year.

Of course, Southwest Florida knows how to party, and we love to join in the fun! As regular sponsors of popular area events like Cape Coral and Fort Myers Bike Nights, Viva Cape Coral, KidsFest, and ZombiCon in Downtown Fort Myers, you can find us under our big blue tents mingling with residents, hosting contests and giveaways, and taking pictures in front of the green screen at all the best gatherings Southwest Florida has to offer. We hope to see you at our next event!

Be sure to check back regularly to see what we’ve been up to. Thank you, Southwest Florida, for being you!

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

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.
