About the Firm

BPS is a premier boutique law firm, and a leader in the San Diego legal community. Our firm emphasizes business, real estate, insurance defense and coverage, and employment disputes, as well as real property and business transactions.


Our three principal attorneys, George Blackmar, Timothy Principe and Gerry Schmelter, have more than a century of combined legal experience, and are all rated AV® Preeminent™ by Martindale-Hubbell. BPS is dedicated to the highest standards of professional excellence and service to its clients. Because of its small size and the experience of its principals, BPS is able to provide its clients with extraordinary hands-on service, solving problems with creative and practical approaches to meet the needs of each client and each situation, and avoiding the time and expense of litigation whenever possible.


BPS is privileged to provide legal advice and counsel to individuals and businesses nationwide, including pre-eminent commercial property owners, insurers, lenders, construction companies, and other discerning clients who demand the very best, and have found it at BPS.
