Peter Schmidt

BA, LLB - Partner

I am a partner at BTM Lawyers, with a strong connection to Port Moody, where I live and work. My primary areas of practice are Family and Estate law. I have also worked on a number of high profile criminal trials and was a judge’s clerk at the Supreme Court of British Columbia early in my legal career. In addition, I have volunteered my time coaching law students through the University of British Columbia’s Law Students’ Legal Advice Program, have written a number of papers for legal conferences, and have been a local Board member for a number of years.

I have a calm nature and look forward to helping clients through what can be a very stressful period in their lives.

Practice Areas

Community Involvement, Hobbies, and Personal Interests

My personal passions include biking, hiking, and traveling. I have also coached lacrosse at a minor level in Port Moody (2015 & 2016). I have lived and studied in Halifax, New Zealand, and Germany.
