• New attorney opens practice to demand justice for everyone
By Linda Green

“Demanding Justice for All” is the motto of a new attorney who opened his doors in Thomson on May 30.
Demetrius T. Abraham, surrounded by members of the McDuffie County Chamber of Commerce, city government and the business community cut the ribbon officially welcoming the opening of his law offices at 203-B Main Street.
In a ceremony that was fortified with Scriptures about success and hard work, Abraham’s general law practice was dedicated as an oasis of help and support of the legal needs of individuals, families and the community across the area.
Abraham, who also has an office in Augusta, will offer criminal defense, DUI defense, divorce, child support, alimony and personal injury representation.
Thomson Mayor Kenneth Usry and Mayor Pro-Tem Alton Belton stood side-by-side at the podium to welcome Abraham and his staff to Thomson.
“It is indeed a pleasure for the elected officials for the City of Thomson to welcome you to our community and wish you the best. We think it will be good for you and for our community,” they said.
In accepting the welcome, Abraham modified the poet Langston Hughes’ question “What happens to a dream deferred?” Hughes, in his 1951 poem, asked if a deferred dream dries up like a raisin in the sun.
Abraham, who began practicing law in 2012, told the audience that a dream will grow if it is fed. “It will grow if you don’t give up, continue to march each day, no matter how difficult it is, if you never give up and never stop believing,” said Abraham.
