Ikemesit “Kem” A. Eyo joined Reese-Beisbier & Associates in March 2020. Kem has been practicing law since 2006 and has worked exclusively in the area of family law since 2008.
Kem obtained a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Science from Clemson University, obtained a Masters in Health Administration from Tulane University, and worked in health administration for several years before applying to law school. She then worked full-time while enrolled in the dual-degree program at Georgia State University to get her Juris Doctor (JD) and Masters in Public Administration.
In the nearly one-and-a-half decades since tailoring her career to domestic law, Kem has successfully represented clients in over 30 counties throughout Georgia. When settlement has not been possible, Kem has fervently represented clients in litigated court appearances. Regardless of the setting, Kem brings a unique and valued balance between compassion and zealous advocacy. She strives to keep clients educated and well-informed. A hallmark of Kem’s career in family law is her unparalleled engagement and active participation at every level. Her dedication and leadership are unmatched among peers; she is a tireless advocate who gives generously of her time and expertise to advance the interests of the families and children she represents.
When not working on client matters, Kem relishes being an aunt to her four wonderful babies (three nieces and a nephew). In fact, one of her favorite things to do is to spend time with her extended family. Some of Kem’s other free-time activities include traveling with her closest friends, watching movies, reading novels, woodburning, and painting. Kem also donates her time to various charitable organizations.
