Dunlap & Associates Celebrates Fifteen-Year Anniversary

While December 1, 2014 marked fifteen years from Dunlap & Associates' start of operations, it was in January, 2000, that the firm welcomed clients and friends to our new offices in the Highpoint Business Campus in Chalfont. During the past fifteen years the firm has experienced steady growth, resulting in the move to new offices at our present location at 1300 Horizon Drive, just around the corner from our original office, and the opening of our satellite office in Quakertown. As we celebrate this milestone we would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and friends. We fully realize that we would not be here without you. Thank you for your friendship, your support, and your encouragement... and thanks most of all for allowing us the great privilege of serving you. We're looking forward to providing you with exceptional client service for the next fifteen years and beyond.
