Temi has a true passion for advocacy.

Temi chose a career in law because she wanted to serve as an advocate, with a special emphasis on diversity, serving the Black community and marginalized populations. Her law school fellowships confirmed this interest: Temi served as a fellow for both the Warner Music Group, which focused on preparing diverse talent for business careers in the music industry, and the Homeless Persons Representation Project, where she had the opportunity to testify before Congress against the criminalization of homelessness.

Temi also spent a law school summer as a Husch Blackwell summer associate, pouring her passion for the law into a wide variety of matters, including real estate transactions and tenant laws, cannabis regulations, labor and employment service agreements and lawsuits, international trade requirements for pharmaceutical ingredients, and FDA regulatory approvals. Since joining the firm as a full associate, Temi has focused much of her practice on government contracts and transactional work. She plans to further develop her career in intellectual property and copyright matters. Known for her proactive mindset, Temi aims not only to resolve clients’ present situations but also to prevent future problems.

Clients value Temi’s solid understanding of the interplay between business matters, marketing goals and legal considerations within a corporation. Her fellowship with Warner Music Group brought law, business and marketing students together to examine the music industry from a business perspective, and Temi developed an appreciation for the comprehensive business support general counsel provides to clients. With a passion for collaboration, she aims to work hand in hand with clients’ internal teams and always ensures that clients feel fully involved in and informed about the matters she handles.

Outside the Office

Temi loves to travel and has made it to 5 continents (she’s still working on Australia and Antarctica). So far, her favorite destinations have been Jamaica and Cuba. Someday, she’d love to film a travel documentary showcasing minorities worldwide.

When she’s at home in D.C., Temi enjoys yoga, movies and documentaries, and music. A novice DJ herself, she likes to attend as many concerts and hear as much live music as possible.

Community Leadership

Temi considers public service a high priority and devoted the year before attending law school to Americorps, serving as a student success coach in Dallas. As a law student, she served with the Homeless Persons Representation Project in Baltimore and the Environmental Justice Center and Thurgood Marshall Academy at Howard University.
