About The FirmBrannen, Searcy & Smith, LLP, a Martindale-Hubbell AV-rated firm, was organized as a partnership by Perry Brannen, Sr. (1903-1984) in 1937. For almost 80 years, the firm has grown and prospered, achieving success and a reputation that demands respect in the legal community. The firm’s members share a deep commitment to professionalism and improving that reputation for its many loyal clients.
Brannen, Searcy & Smith, LLP has its offices in midtown Savannah, located at 22 East 34th Street, on the corner of Drayton Street and 34th Street. The firm is housed in the former mansion of A. B. Hull. Mr. Hull built the stately three-story building in 1897. Dr. Fulmer, a local physician, had his office in the building and lived upstairs until the late-1970s, when the building was purchased by this law firm. The main building is on the National Register for Historic Preservation. The firm’s Mediation Center is located in the carriage house, across the private parking lot at the rear of the building.
Savannah and Chatham CountySavannah, with all its historic charm, is also a thriving economic center growing at an impressive rate. Although tourism is at the heart of its economy, the Savannah ports and numerous large industrial facilities call Savannah home. Savannah is also culturally alive, with an active professional orchestra, numerous semi-professional theatre groups, numerous museums, and four large academic college institutions. The City of Savannah also plays host each March to one of the world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day parades.
Strongly committed to this community, Brannen, Searcy & Smith, LLP encourages its members to participate in community activities. Partners and associates alike are involved in not only legal organizations, but also many philanthropic and civic organizations that give back to this community. Brannen, Searcy & Smith, LLP continues to grow as Savannah grows. We are committed to the development of new practice areas, while maintaining the firm’s historic expertise in the fields of civil litigation, real estate, and resolution of business disputes. The firm’s active mediation practice strives to assist clients and counsel in resolving all types of disputes, both pre- and post-litigation.
