I say the answer is: yes.
Mr. Darden was a fine public servant and a city attorney long before he began advertising for personal injury cases. In fact - he has a distinguished record of service to this community which includes serving as city attorney for Hinesville and Walthourville, as well as Juvenile Court Judge for this area. For what it's worth, I also know Mr. Darden personally as we served together in the Fort Stewart SJA office in the early 1980s. I can assure you that he is far from an "ambulance chaser." His career bio is here:
The fact of the matter is that lawyers - just like anyone else - have to earn a living. Used to be that they couldn't advertise. Now they can. I find some of the legal advertisements "unsavory" at best, but in the business world (to which lawyers belong), you still have to gain your competitive advantage where you can is you want to do well. I don't think we can fault Mr. Darden for taking advantage of today's media technology.
I agree. Mr.Darden is a fine public servant. I've had the honor of working with him too. He is firm but fair.
