    create table #test(id int, name varchar(100))
    insert into #test values (1,'aaa')
    insert into #test values (2,'bbb')
    insert into #test values (3,'ccc')

    declare @search varchar(100)= 'a'

    select * from #test where 1=1
    and ( name like isnull(@search,'') + '%') --OR @search is null

    select * from #test where 1=1
    AND ( @search IS NOT NULL AND (name like @search + '%')
    OR(@search IS NULL AND 1=1))
