Schell & Hogan, LLP can trace its beginnings back
to the early 1900s and the founding of the Jacksonville, Florida-based
firm of Smoak, Davis, and Nixon, LLP.
In 1956, the partners of Smoak, Davis, and Nixon, LLP decided to open a branch in Brunswick, Georgia which operated under this name for the next decade.
On August 31, 1967, J. Powell Schell and Terry D. Hogan, both partners of Smoak, Davis, and Nixon, LLP, acquired the Brunswick office and began to operate independently under the name of Schell & Hogan, LLP. Since 1967, our firm has served clients across Southeast Georgia from its main office in Brunswick as well as brief stints in Douglas, Georgia, and Hinesville, Georgia.
