“I have never been more satisfied with a contractor than I am with Murray Associates. They are very professional.”Corp. VP SecurityAgricultural Processor
“Loved the whole approach and low-key attitude conveyed during the evaluation. This went far with explaining things to ‘the boss,’ who was on-hand during the review. The quality of the report is excellent and I love all the references. Great job and keep up the good work.”Information Services ManagerCommunications Tech Corporation
“As usual, it was great working with Murray Associates. While always exceeding expectations, they went above and beyond this time helping us de-bug an AV problem. This team is second to none.”Managing DirectorUS Financial Institution
“We use Murray and Associates exclusively to monitor our high value assets. We are a high profile insurance and investment company requiring great security. They have always done an excellent job. They are prompt and excellent at their craft.”Aviation Security DirectorGoogle+ review
“I met Kevin almost 30 years ago when one of our clients was in need of a TSCM inspection... Other competitors that I interviewed were vague when describing their services... Kevin was extremely forthcoming... On this first assignment I was convinced I had made the right choice and my client agreed. I recommend Kevin and Murray Associates to my clients. He is a recognized expert and the consummate professional.”Licensed Private InvestigatorGoogle+ review
