About

Cameron's Lawyers and our history

Where we came from

Camerons Lawyers was established in 1887 and founded by Mr John Sutherland. Mr Sutherland was admitted to practice in Scotland and travelled to Australia to commence practising as one of the first Lawyers in Northern Victoria. The original Camerons Lawyers firm offices were situated on the corner of Maude and Stewart Streets, Shepparton.

In 1921 Mr Sutherland formed a partnership with Mr Frank Cameron; where the famous Cameron name originated from. At this time, the firm held the name “Sutherland & Cameron”.

Shortly after the passing of Mr Sutherland, Mr Frank Cameron practiced alone in offices on Fraser Street, Shepparton. In 1950 Frank Cameron’s first son Bruce joined the partnership then known as “Cameron & Cameron”. In 1953 Frank Cameron’s second son Graeme Cameron became a partner of the firm.

Since the 1950s, there has been a long list of highly regarded partners of the firm including Mr Peter Johnson, Mr Nicholas Graeme, Mr Graeme Ingram, Mr Robert Francis Oldfield and Mr Simon Furphy.

Today the firm is located at 2-4 Edward Street, Shepparton and operated as a company known as Camerons Lawyers Pty Ltd, the Directors of which are Anthony Coote, Jayne Law, Kim Douglass, Michael McIlroy and Owen Lai.
