Russell Johnston


Russell grew up in Providence, Caswell County on his dad's tobacco farm near the Dan River.  His family has farmed in Caswell County for generations.  After his Dad retired from farming, Russell decided to pursue the other family tradition of practicing law.  His great-grandfather and great-uncle both practiced law in Yanceyville.  Russell utilizes the same work ethic that he learned from his Dad on the farm in the legal profession.

It's an honor for me to live and work in the community where I grew up.  I can now give back to the town that gave so much to me.  Growing up here, I had the privilege of looking up to George Daniel and John Thomas.  They certainly had a profound influence on my desire to practice law and I am fortunate to practice here at home with them.
