Our History

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.

...established by Cranston Albury McEachern in 1928.

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 recently.
