The Firm

Located in Ashland, Oregon since 1979, our CPA firm of 5 experts focuses on small businesses, individuals, estates, trusts, and non-profits.  We provide services for tax returns, financial statements, accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, and consulting.  Many clients are in Southern Oregon but we also have a loyal following of clients from other states.  We are QuickBooks ProAdvisors.

Originally founded by Gary Hooper, he was later joined by Chuck Watson in 1993 to form “Hooper and Watson, P.C.”  The firm expertly and seamlessly transitioned ownership during the last decade so that Gary and Chuck could enjoy full retirements.  As a result, the name changed to Dawson P.C, but we are the same great firm.

The managing partner Dwaine Dawson was directly mentored by Gary Hooper and Chuck Watson. Dwaine also has extensive public accounting and industry experience. Dawson P.C. is poised to provide the same consistently superior services of the last 30 years for the next 30 years.

We hope you find this website to have easy navigation and be full of useful tools. We're not attempting to impress with long narrative or clever adjectives. Rather, we're presenting a crisp, efficient resource that is a representation of how we manage our firm and client relationships.
