April 21, 1944 – August 31, 2021
Edmund L. Brunini, Jr. a leader of Brunini Law Firm, passed away on August 31, 2021. He began his law career in 1969 with Brunini, Grantham, Grower & Hewes where he practiced law for 45 years. During that time he had an accomplished career focusing on litigation and regulatory law.
In his early years Mr. Brunini served clients in the oil and gas industry of Mississippi. As major petroleum producers began exiting the state, he transitioned into the practice area of healthcare. He established a relationship with the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois and their mission of St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson. As the need for legal services increased, he was able to provide the counsel and resources they needed to help meet the needs of this mission.
Mr. Brunini also served a wide array of other clients in various industries which included manufacturing, healthcare, general business and local governments.
“I always admired Eddie for his keen intellect, sound judgment, compassion for his fellow man, and truly incomparable wit. We will all miss him and what he provided to our firm,“ said David Kaufman, Partner.
Not only was Mr. Brunini a successful attorney, but he valued and was actively involved in community service. He modeled this through the many leadership roles he held in numerous community organizations.
“Eddie Brunini was an outstanding lawyer and leader of the Brunini Firm for many years,” said Sam Kelly, Managing Partner of Brunini Law Firm. “He reminded us all of the importance of service not only to our clients but also to our communities. He could always be counted on to lighten a moment with his humor and wit. He will indeed be missed, but his legacy at the Brunini Firm will continue for many years into the future.”
