Argent Law commenced in 2014, and very soon after incorporating with Lawyer Don McKay, whose law firm D.S. McKay & Associates had serviced the Malvern East and surrounding area for over 30 years. In March 2017, the firm needed to expand its operations and chose to relocate to its new offices, located at the iconic Organ House at 2 Stawell Street, Richmond Commencing in 2014, Argent Law, under the Directorship of Melissa Patterson, incorporated with Lawyer Don McKay, whose law firm D.S. McKay & Associates had serviced the Malvern East and surrounding areas for over 30 years. Melissa and her team seamlessly integrated with D.S McKay & Associates, and developed a number of strong relationships with the firm’s clients.
In April 2020 Argent Law incorporated with Remington Wright , Croydon, located in the beautiful and historic bank building at 50 Main Street. The former principal, Tony Wright, serviced the Eastern Suburbs for over 40 years and brings a wealth of experience to our ever-growing team. For years Tony has been involved in the local Rotary club, volunteering his time and resources to many of their worthy causes.It was with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Argent Law continues to support Tony’s work and carries on the legacy of quality legal service and community care.
Every lawyer has a “ why .” Why do they want to do this job? Why do they want to work these hours and take on the pressure it takes to be a good lawyer? What drove them through law school and through the mountain of work and reading required to go from junior lawyer to principal or partner?
For our Principal Melissa Patterson, the answer comes to her without any hesitation or second thought, it is all about advocacy and empowerment. Advocating our client’s position is the ultimate goal in our legal work and this is what Melissa has instilled in all of her staff at Argent Law and is what drives us in everything we do inside and outside of the office.
