“Clients cannot judge the technical qualifications of surveyors; if they were that competent, they would do the job themselves. Judgment of capabilities is usually based on other items such as personal appearance, mannerisms, the ability to discuss everyday events and the command of words”. -Brown 2nd Editions, Boundary Control and Legal Principals, preface
