Along with the town of Fuquay-Varina and the surrounding areas, Senter, Stephenson, Johnson, PA has grown over the decades. The original business, the Law Office of Jack E.

Their office was located in its current location on Raleigh Street in the newly incorporated Fuquay-Varina. Linda F. Johnson joined Jack and Larry in 2001, and Senter, Stephenson, Johnson, PA was formed.
