RALEIGH, N.C., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm of Owens & Miller is proud to announce that for the 2nd year in a row, an Owens & Miller case has qualified for the NC Lawyers Weekly's statewide million dollar settlements or verdicts publication. On Feb. 13, 2017, NC Lawyers Weekly published their list of the state's largest settlements in 2016, which listed 18 cases in the entire state in which the lawyers recovered more than $1 million. The list featured one of O&M's successful cases, a $1.85 million settlement from the spring of 2016. The settlement was listed in the edition as the 13th largest settlement in NC. In 2015, NC Lawyers Weekly featured an O&M $1.5 million case on the Top 25 largest verdicts/settlements in the same list.
"There are so many fantastic firms across the state that fight tirelessly for the rights of their clients. It is such an honor to be among those who have achieved this position," said partner Kimberly Turner Miller. "We simply work hard, stay focused on what's important, and never lose sight of the goal — helping get our client's lives back on course. I can't believe that of all of the tried and true, established NC law firms with many years of experience, that our firm could achieve this great distinction. We never 'set out' to make the list. But, it is an honor and one we take very seriously," said partner Will Owens.
