Kari Hepburn

Associate Attorney

Senter, Stephenson, Johnson, PA has grown and transformed alongside the town of Fuquay-Varina over the last six decades. The original firm, the Law Office of Jack Senter, opened its doors in 1953, ten years before the towns of Fuquay Springs and Varina were combined as a single town. In 1965, Larry Stephenson, Jack’s brother-in-law, joined the firm, and it was refashioned Senter & Stephenson, Attorneys at Law. Their office was in the main building of what is now the firm’s three building offices. Linda F. Johnson joined Jack and Larry in 2001 and formed Senter, Stephenson, Johnson, PA. In 2001 Larry passed away after a diagnosis of aggressive ALS and Jack passed away in 2012. Linda is now the managing shareholder of Senter, Stephenson, Johnson, PA and is assisted by attorney Kari Hepburn and a team of experienced paralegals.

In Memoriam

We fondly remember our founding partners, Jack Senter and Larry Stephenson, as well as Angela Weaver. Angela came to the firm in 2001 with Linda and headed the paralegal duties of the real estate division until she passed away in 2014. These three individuals were foundational members of our team and it is by their example we continue our work today.
