Ferris & Flinn, LLC is proud to announce a corporate name change to Ferris, Flinn & Medina, LLC.  Jose D. Medina, RPLS (Joe) became a partner in 2007 and as of 2012 became fully vested. 

 Joe began his career in the US Marine Corps in 1983.  After an Honorable Discharge in 1989, he began working as a Rodman on a survey crew in South Texas.  After working his way up to Survey Crew Leader, he decided to become a Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) and achieved his goal in 2003.  Shortly thereafter, he came to work with Ferris & Flinn, LLC to start our Surveying Department.  Ferris & Flinn knew the only way to provide the best Civil Engineering Service was to have our own Surveying Department.  Joe has been a true asset to the firm with his unique field experience and ability to read and understand deed records as they apply to the field.
