Kem A. Eyo (pronounced “A-Yo”) represents clients in all aspects of family (domestic) law. This includes divorce, adoption, child support, child custody, grandparent visitation, legitimation and paternity, domestic violence, separation agreements, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements. Kem has also historically represented clients in the areas of landlord/tenant law, association law, consumer bankruptcy, and collections law.
Kem received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematical Science from Clemson University in 1995 and a Master of Health Administration from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in 1998. Kem received her “calling” into law while working full-time in the field of health administration. She attended Georgia State University as a part-time student, and received a dual degree – Master of Public Administration and Juris Doctorate – in 2006. During law school, Kem earned litigation honors, served as president of the Black Law Students Association, and was a member of the Student Bar Association and Health Law Association.
Kem brings to the practice of family law a unique and valued balance between compassion and zealous advocacy. She strives to keep clients educated and well informed.

An extremely talented and well respected attorney in the legal community, I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer who knows the law and truly cares about protecting the rights of her clients and getting them the most favorable result possible.
