P.J. Scheiner Honored as One of Southwest Florida’s Young Leaders

Gulfshore Business recognizes lawyer on its prestigious 40 Under 40 list.

Preston J. Scheiner - Lawyer FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 3, 2020) – Preston J. “P.J.” Scheiner, attorney with Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, has been named to the prestigious 40 Under 40 list published by Gulfshore Business magazine.

Each year, the magazine recognizes 40 business professionals younger than 40 who are among the area’s most distinguished leaders. This is the 18th year Gulfshore Business has honored these professionals in Southwest Florida.

P.J. Scheiner was also recently named to the esteemed list of Florida Super Lawyers. Each year, Super Lawyers recognizes the top lawyers in Florida through a multiphase selection process involving peer nomination and evaluation, as well as independent research.

P.J. Scheiner’s passion and dedication to his profession are key reasons why he is on the 2020 list. That, and the sage advice from his father, and longtime Fort Myers attorney, Bruce. “My father often told me of a local legal legend named Jimmy Franklin, who could walk into a courtroom, tell the judge what the law was, and-without even reading the case establishing the law or precedent-the court would usually accept his representation and rule accordingly,” said P.J. “My father’s advice was to earn the respect of the local bar and judiciary so that like Jimmy Franklin-when I made a representation in the courtroom, no one would ever have reason to question or doubt its accuracy, integrity or veracity.”

P.J. Scheiner’s commitment to his clients extends into the courtroom, where he has helped secure multi-million dollar jury verdicts on behalf of clients who suffered devastating injuries caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness.

P.J. Scheiner has served as a trial lawyer since 2007, working alongside his father, Bruce L. Scheiner. His devotion to the community shines bright in his efforts for water quality, serving on the board of Captains for Clean Water. He also takes a leading role in his firm’s efforts to help Southwest Florida youth, presenting the annual Make a Difference Award, which recognizes a student from every participating middle and high school in Lee, Collier, Charlotte and Hendry counties for volunteering or engaging in community projects.

Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, was founded in 1971 by Bruce L. Scheiner and his wife, Cheryl Scheiner. Both continue to work alongside their son, P.J. Scheiner, who joined the firm as a trial attorney in 2007.

Today, Bruce and P.J. work in the negotiating room and the courtroom, where they fight to secure full and fair restitution for each and every client they have the privilege of representing. Bruce Scheiner still hand selects each case the firm accepts, personally assembles the team best able to see the case through to settlement or trial, and oversees every case from intake to resolution.

Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, has the knowledge, experience and resources to handle all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims for clients across the state of Florida, including trucking accidents, boating accidents, airplane accidents, nursing home neglect and abuse, construction accidents, defective product claims, premise liability claims and injuries to children.
