Giving Back

Special Equestrians Project

On May 2, 2015, staff from Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner returned to the Special Equestrians facility in Fort Myers to help them buckle down and giddy up! As part of the Firm’s ongoing Community Outreach Project, BLS volunteers once again arrived at the horse farm, equipped with caches of elbow grease and admiration for all of the life-changing work done at Special Equestrians.

To beat the heat, our team got started early, weeding and refreshing the butterfly garden, trimming hedges, cleaning up the front road area, helping with clerical tasks in the office, and even serving the horses their breakfast: delicious and nutritious hay!

The day was productive and fun for everyone involved—even the horses, one of whom we fell in love with on sight! “Freckles,” the gorgeous Appaloosa seen bonding in the picture with a BLS volunteer, quickly cantered her way into our hearts and had us wondering if it’s time for Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, to have its very own mascot!

The BLS Community Outreach Project volunteers returned to the Special Equestrians farm on January 31st for a beautiful morning of gardening, weed-whacking, trimming, cleaning, and some good ol’ horsin’ around! The event was part of our ongoing relationship with Special Equestrians and a great way to gallop into 2015.

We were all pleased to have a small part in maintaining this wonderful place. It is a joy to see the smiles on each and every rider’s face, and a great treat to ‘snuggle’ with some of these incredible horses.

We can’t wait until our next trip to the farm!

Volunteers with a Horse

Horseplay and community service don’t usually go hand-in-hand, but an awesome group of BLS volunteers made that happen during a recent trip to Special Equestrians, a nonprofit organization offering therapeutic horseback riding classes and equine-assisted activities to disabled persons in Southwest Florida!

When Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner heard that Special Equestrians needed help maintaining its 10-acre, 12-horse facility in the Buckingham area of Fort Myers, we were chomping at the bit to lend a hand. On November 15, 2014, our team refurbished two butterfly gardens, trimmed shrubs, battled weeds, and tidied up the horses’ playground at the Special Equestrians farm. The date marked the first of a series of beautification and maintenance projects scheduled to be carried out by BLS volunteers in partnership with the great people at Special Equestrians.

The volunteers got to mingle with some really cool horses and learn all about the meaningful and unique service this organization provides our community. Be sure to check out our pictures from the event and return to our Community page to get the latest on what Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner’s Community Outreach Project has been doing in Southwest Florida!

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.
★★★★★
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.

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.

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!
★★★★★
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.
