— Michael Kvarme, Managing Shareholder, Weintraub I Tobin
"DCA helped us negotiate a selling price that was, honestly, more than we would have had the confidence to ask for. It would have been foolish for us to try to navigate this sale on our own - I can't even imagine how different the outcome would have been, to our detriment.
I hope this is the last business sale I ever go through, but if it's not, I can guarantee DCA will be involved in the next one!”
—Brian Smith, President, Lighthouse PMG

Thanks to the guidance of our entire DCA team, we are a stronger organization."
—Hayes Barnard, President, Paramount Equity

“DCA Partners’ diligent efforts alleviated the stress of selling the company. Their professionalism during negotiations literally changed my life.
