Everyone has seen the huge bright yellow billboards with ads screaming, “DUI? Duncan!”
The advertisements of the prominent DUI law firm, featuring local attorneys James Duncan III and Tiffini Chambers, are hard to miss.
So are the SUVs racing around town with the same slogan plastered all over them.
In fact, the SUVs are particularly hard to miss when they are casually waiting in a drive-thru window of a liquor store to buy alcohol.
Check out the photo for yourself.
Here this is an extremely high-profile law firm that handles serious DUIs on a daily basis and one of its employees is actually using the company vehicle in a drive-thru at a spirits store?
How clueless can she be?
It’s like a bad joke.
Now, the Insider isn’t implying that this employee was drinking and driving or doing anything illegal, but somewhere common sense has to hit you in the forehead.
It was extremely bad judgment for this person not to simply park the company car and walk into the liquor store.
This employee is risking the firm’s reputation and that’s not something that should be taken lightly.
After all, this isn’t the first time the Duncan Law Firm has caught the Insider’s attention.
Back in August, the Insider wrote about a strange occurrence in accountability court, where staff from the court administrator’s office reportedly spent some time during an introductory session singing the praises of DUI Duncan.
Operated out of the Richmond County State Court, accountability court is for people with addiction problems that led them to get a DUI.
During an introductory session, a new group of admissions was given a rundown about what the 18-month program expects from them.
The impression left upon the new admissions was: you’re in accountability court because you didn’t hire DUI Duncan.
So, if the Duncan Law Firm has pretty much cornered the market on DUI cases in Richmond County, why risk that reputation by using a company car in a liquor store’s drive-thru?
Or was the employee hoping to pick up some new customers for the law firm while waiting for her booze?
Whatever the reason, it was thoughtless and beyond stupid.
Maybe next month the Duncan Law Firm can loan out its company car for a pub crawl in downtown Augusta.
Nothing like bar hopping to drum up some extra business.
