"I have worked with Meridian Surveying Engineering, Inc. for several years. They are true professionals in that they have competently and timely completed all jobs, whether on behalf of mutual clients, or in support of pending litigation matters as expert witnesses.

When I have needed additional information, the response has always been prompt and professional. In addition, I regularly teach easement and boundary continuing education seminars, and have been most impressed to see the entire Meridian crew in attendance. In short, I highly recommend Stan Gray and Meridian for surveying and engineering work."
