Margaret Dowd, our founding partner, first opened for business in December of 1979 operating as a sole proprietor with one employee. In 1988 the staff doubled in size growing from one CPA and one staff member to two CPAs and two staff members. In June of 1988 Margaret moved her establishment from 611 Pecan to 1202 State Line Avenue and later reorganized her business to form a single member limited liability company and started operating as Margaret Dowd, PLLC. In 1998 the firm began operating under the name Dowd and Company, PLLC. Dowd and Company continued to grow and took on two more partners in 2001, Chad Dowd and Joe Dowd.
