Mr. Ogune has over twenty years of legal experience, gained at the highest levels of legal practice. He began as the only lawyer in his graduating class to have interned and clerked for three trial judges and one appellate judge in the State of Maryland. Mr. Ogune worked for the Late Hon. Roger W. Brown, Sr. of the Circuit Court of Maryland for Baltimore City. He also worked for Judge Charles E. Moylan, Jr., one of the best appellate judges of all-time in Maryland. He then clerked for the Late Hon. Mabel H. Hubbard, the first African-American female Circuit Court Judge in Maryland, and for the Hon. Joseph P. McCurdy, Sr. of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, a trial judge known for his patience, thoroughness, and fairness. Mr. Ogune left law clerkship and began his private practice as an associate of Venable, Baetjer & Howard LLP (now Venable LLP), a premier law firm in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, with offices all over the country. For several years, Mr. Ogune practiced litigation and appellate advocacy as a member of Venable LLP’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group, representing Fortune 500 companies in an array of complex legal matters dealing with commercial disputes, product liability, toxic torts, business torts, employment/labor matters, debtor/creditor rights, and antitrust litigation.

    Mr. Ogune represented an immigration client before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. That case was a case of first impression before that court, the court having not decided the issue at stake before then. Mr. Ogune was able to convince the appellate court to interpret the Immigration and Nationality Act to mean that the “date of admission” of an immigrant is the date he/she was “inspected” and authorized” at the border prior to entering the country, and so that would be the date from when to calculate the five years after which the immigrant’s resident permit may not be revoked for the commission of a crime of moral turpitude. As a result, the Fourth Circuit vacated the removal order issued by both the United States Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals, whereupon the client was allowed to remain in the country.
