To whom much is given, much is expected. The practice of law has been very good to Will and Kimberly, and their families. In return, Will and Kimberly each strive to give back in any way possible.
Annual Owens & Miller PLLC $1,000 College Scholarship
In 2014, the firm started the Owens & Miller PLLC $1,000 College Scholarship. This annual scholarship is awarded each year to a deserving N.C. High School Senior who will be graduating that year.
The scholarship was created to aid in the education of a rising college freshman who has demonstrated a commitment to serving his/her community through public service. Past scholarship recipients have come from towns like Clinton, Oxford, and Sanford, and have gone on to attend college at UNC Chapel Hill, East Carolina University, and UNC Wilmington.

Wake County Bar Awards, Wake County Bar Association’s Fundraiser for Legal Aid
For the last few years, O&M has been a proud sponsor of the Wake County Bar Awards, which is the local Wake County Bar Association’s annual fundraiser to benefit Legal Aid of North Carolina. The event typically includes a silent auction and a satirical comedy and musical production created and performed by Wake County attorneys. Each year, the event showcases the musical and other performance talents the members of the Wake County Bar.
In 2017, Kimberly served as Chair of the Sponsorship Committee for the Bar Awards. That year, the event raised over $100,000 for Legal Aid for the first time. In 2019, Kimberly was asked to take the helm and Chair the entire event. This included coordinating the sponsorship, silent auction and creative committees. The Event was extremely successful and under her leadership it raised over $130,000 for Legal Aid of North Carolina.
