"Dugan & Lopatka is a terrific compliment to our companies. They have saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past ten years using incentives that we would not have realized without them. They have offered some great ideas that we have used in estate planning. They are always current with tax laws and estate planning strategies. I could not be happier with an accounting firm." David Ahrens, Terco, Inc.
"Our relationship with D&L started about five years ago as a result of a recommendation by our bank. As the President of Marvel, I was looking for a full services accounting firm, but more importantly, I wanted to feel as though the relationship was one predicated upon more than a ledger of numbers. Now, several years later, I have come to feel as though D&L, and their team is merely an extension of our organization. Their services are professional, up-to-date, responsive, and always patiently articulated to our satisfaction. I consider D&L to be one of our very best providers and would proudly refer them to others." -- Les Branch, Marvel Abrasive Products, LLC
