Attorney Profile

As a trial attorney at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, PJ Scheiner has dedicated his career to helping people who have been injured, maimed, or killed by the negligence of others. Inspired by the rich American tradition of using the judicial branch of government to forge a better, safer, and more just society, Mr. Scheiner believes that every case has the potential to effect structural change to make our communities and our society safer for ourselves and our children. By fighting for full and fair restitution for each and every injured, wronged, or aggrieved victim, an example is set that careless, dangerous, or irresponsible conduct will not be tolerated in our community. 

Since graduating from Amherst College in Massachusetts and the University of Miami School of Law in Florida, PJ has joined forces with his father to recover numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts, judgments, and settlements.

As an active speaker and presenter at legal conferences, PJ has traveled the country to share the experiences and lessons of his litigation and trial experience. PJ is also a licensed multi-engine commercial and type-rated jet pilot.
