MEXICO – Christopher S. Berryment has been admitted to practice law upon recommendation of the Maine Board of Bar Examiners.

Berryment was sworn in as an officer of the court on Oct. 31 at the Cumberland County Courthouse in Portland. His admission was moved by Attorney Peter E. Rodway in a ceremony presided over by Justice Ellen Gorman of the Supreme Judicial Court.

Berryment is the son of Scott and Lynda Berryment of Dixfield. He is the grandson of Raymond and the late Jean Louise Berryment of Rumford, Elizabeth (Knapp) Morton of Rumford, and Ronald Duguay of Peru. He was raised in Dixfield, attended Dixfield elementary and middle schools, and graduated from Dirigo High School in 2001. In 2005 he received a bachelor of arts degree in economics from Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., and in 2008 he received a juris doctorate from University of Maine School of Law in Portland.

The law firm of Rodway and Horodyski, with offices in Mexico and Portland, has hired Berryment as an associate. He will join Attorney Rodway in litigation practice, focusing initially on criminal defense, family law and civil litigation. Although Berryment will primarily work out of his firm’s Mexico office at 225 River Road, he will also take cases in the Portland office.
