John Cantril is a native of Scottsbluff, Nebraska and has spent time in many states before making North Carolina his home. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Later, he earned his JD from the University of Nebraska College of Law.
In his free time, John enjoys exploring North Carolina making trips to the mountains and the beach every chance he gets. As a former golf teaching professional in Minnesota, he is an avid golfer who enjoys the beautiful courses in Raleigh and the ability to play all year. He’s even taken on the herculean task of assisting partner Kyle Smalling with his golf game (god bless him).
John also enjoys watching basketball and football. As a newbie to tobacco road, he is having the time of his life experiencing ACC basketball in the Triangle. He is also still open to suggestions about what team in the area he should root for despite the workplace bias toward NC State.
John handles various practice areas for Capital City Law including commercial litigation, contracts, family law, and real estate law. He also assists startups and small businesses with drafting and reviewing contracts and other early-stage business issues.
