Dar'shun is a very hard working and capable attorney. I have known her since she was a student at Oglethorpe University (we are fellow alums), where she was an outstanding student. She has an amazing work ethic, both in her law practice and her work as a legislator in the Georgia House of Representatives. It is a pleasure to endorse Dar'shun.
