Firm History

The Firm of Divine, Blalock, Martin and Sellari LLC (DBMS) traces its ancestry all the way back to Wilbur F. Divine, III – one of the very first CPAs licensed in the State of Florida.

Mr. Divine (holding CPA Certificate #31) started practicing public accounting in Palm Beach County in 1932. He was joined in practice in 1943 by his son, Wilbur F. Divine, IV, CPA. In 1968, James A. Blalock, CPA, joined with Wilbur F. Divine, IV, CPA, to create the Firm, Divine & Blalock, P.A.

The Firm remains committed to the same ideals of personal service that our predecessors had pursued. In that respect, we believe old-fashioned good service and concern for the client as a person is simply good business.

Today’s principals and their respective admission dates are Gary B. Sellari, CPA (1982), J. Ronald Anderson, CPA (2001), Scott A. Stein, CPA (2010), B. Charles Sellari, CPA (2019) and Suzi Rapp, CPA (2019). DBMS continues to experience steady and sustained growth – in clientele, revenues and expertise.

Our Firm’s business decisions on matters such as office accommodations, access to research materials, commitment to ongoing education, placing a heavy emphasis on making and/or saving clients’ time and money, hiring technical expertise when needed, encouraging specialization and retaining only the best of employees, plus the embracing of information technology have all proven to be beneficial for not only our clients but also our Firm.
