We help Law Firms of all sizes and specialties across the Greater DC Metro Area gain better business outcomes by leveraging enabling technology to make the most of IT investments and realize positive ROI.


Meridian has more than 30 years of experience working with the DC metro area’s legal marketplace. Our clients take advantage of best practices gained through a dedicated focus on legal industry-specific services, applications, trends, processes and hardware solutions. The skills and technology expertise shared and deployed within our customer base allow our clients to simply focus on practicing law.

The legal industry is known for generating a significant amount of paper, with hard-copy and electronic documents pouring into law firms on a daily basis. In recent years, there's also been significant growth in the need for firms to have a comprehensive technology road map that not only addresses print and document lifecycle management, but also mobility, security, automation and compliance. Handling these items in the most cohesive and efficient manner possible is a key determining factor in a firm’s success and profitability, and this is where Meridian excels.

With a team of specialists with areas of expertise covering each type of legal practice, size and area of the law, our brand-neutral solutions are flexible enough to accommodate the challenges of smaller local boutique firms, yet robust enough to integrate quickly with larger international practice environments.

Partner with us to leverage our experience working with some of the area's most progressive legal professionals — from 24X7 Help Desk Support to Bates Stamping to Locked Printing and more, Meridian has solutions for the Office to the Copy Center to the Courthouse.

ANOTHER HAPPY LEGAL CUSTOMER...

"Anderson & Quinn, LLC has had a business relationship with Meridian since 2012. We were impressed by our Meridian representative's technical knowledge, tenacious yet easy-going manner, and excellent customer service skills. The prompt follow-up and questions asked in order to determine the best products for our company, and the thoroughly researched responses to our own questions made us feel comfortable in our decision to leave our previous digital office solutions company — with whom we had a business relationship for over a decade.

We are extremely happy with our Bizhubs, and with the consistent and prompt service that Meridian provides. Technicians are always very personable and the same core of familiar faces arrive to help us whenever we need service. Furthermore, the technicians always leave their business cards and ask if we are satisfied with the service before they leave.

Recently, another attorney joined our firm and brought with him a Bizhub machine. Our representative presented [trade-in] proposals, in addition to analyzing our current usage, taking into account the third copier.

His honest analysis showed that we were slightly under-utilizing our two machines...and he arranged for the third machine to be inspected, "brought up to speed," and added to our maintenance agreement at no additional cost. We are extremely happy with Meridian sales and service, and look forward to growing with Meridian over the years."
