Expanding our land surveying services into Alabama, Earl Morriss, PLS, JD is one of the newest additions to the W&A family. Earl will be leading our surveying team in Birmingham, Alabama recruiting new talent and forging partnerships in this new market!
Earl joins our team with over 40 years of experience in the field. He earned his bachelor’s in Urban Studies and Affairs from Georgia State University in 1990 and earned his law degree several years later from the Seattle University School of Law. A land surveyor by trade, he has worked with numerous teams all across the country as a professional land surveyor and surveying manager, practiced law as a litigator specializing in real property and land use issues, and taught various subjects, such as boundary, easements, etc., at land surveying conferences.
In his time outside of the office, Earl enjoys spending time with his wife and their cat, Fluffy. He enjoys traveling, hiking, golfing, and mowing his lawn (which, by his own admission, his far too large to mow). His favorite part of being a part of the W&A family so far are the potentials for growth in the state of Alabama, the teamwork present between out various departments and surveying branches, and the “friendly folks” he’s had the pleasure of working with.
We’re glad to add Earl to the growing list of new talent our firm is bringing onto our team and excited to see this new branch grow and thrive in the coming years!
