The History of Cranston McEachern Lawyers

The History of Cranston McEachern Lawyers

Cranston McEachern Lawyers is a firm with a long pedigree.  It was established by Cranston Albury McEachern in 1928.  Cranston conducted the practice until the outbreak of the Second World War.  

A serving officer in the then militia, Cranston was sent to Singapore where he was captured with Australian forces in 1942 and became a prisoner of war serving on the Burma Railway.  He was later promoted to brigadier.  

Following his release, Cranston returned home to his family and immediately set about re-establishing the firm we know today as Cranston McEachern Lawyers.

Cranston's son David became managing partner of the firm in 1980 and continued in that position until 2016.
