Fast and Efficient
She was fast in her response time and her information was efficient as it was verified when my husband and I contacted another law office in Georgia directly.

Excellect service
Kem Ayo helped my young adult son file bankruptcy and reestablish his financial footing after his car was repossessed and the finance company garnished his wages for the rest of the payments. She kept us informed and diligently worked with us through the process. He was able to get his money back. We appreciate her diligence and professionalism throughout the entire process.

Exceptional Service!
I cannot thank Kem enough for all of her work on my divorce and child support case. Her professionalism and expediency were incomparable! Even more so her sensitivity to my concerns and needs will definitely set her apart from other attorneys in her field. I was stressed and anxious but from the moment I entered her office I felt a sigh of relief and she proved to be someone that I could trust and depend on during the very difficult time.

You can count on Kem
Kem helped me with my child support case. She stayed focused, even during the times when I was emotional, and professional throughout the process. You can bet on Kem to deliver.

Excellent, Young, New, Effective, Lawyer

Very Professional
Kem has represented my family for some time now and has help us get over the legal hurdles that most non-legal folks would only get tangled in. I is good to have someone who looks out for your interests and gets the necessary leg-work done in a professional and timely manner.

Excellent
Kem Eyo was very helpful and understanding of a very unique situation. She is very personable and extremely easy to talk to. Not at all intimidating like most lawyers. I actually used her twice.

Kem Eyo - Attorney
Kem represented my interest in a dispute with a local Home Owners Association. He conducted an extensive research of the laws involving my case and prepared a detailed response that clearly outlined the laws and conditions in my defense. Kem was also very responsive to my questions. She actively kept me informed with me having to request updates on the status of the case. Kem has a wealth of experience with HOA as well as other areas in her speciality practice. I recommend seeking her for legal counsel.

Landlord/Tenant Law
Mrs.Eyo was very helpful in helping out with Landlord/Tenant Law. I would recommend Mrs.Eyo to family and friends. Thanks again

Great Service!
I had settled a debt for approximately $7,200, however, I needed a lawyer to document the agreement and file the necessary court papers showing it was satisfied in the courts. This particular debt collector has a very bad history on the web in regards to making a verbal agreement and then reneging on it. For example, there would be a verbal agreement on the phone and then the people who owed the money would send the debt collector the amount they agreed to. Once the money was received, the debt collector would back out of the agreement and say you still owe us the rest. Kem Eyo was my choice and she kept the debt collector honest and on point in regards to the agreement and following through with the letter of satisfaction in the courts. I would recommend Kem Eyo to anyone!
