Are URL redirects the best way to deal with Google and moved pages?

We migrated our site from straight-up file-based system to Drupal.  Unfortunately, many links in Google point to our old site.  If I search for Murray Richtel, for example, I get a hit for this address (the old URL).

http://www.jaginc.com/pages/richtel.php

Murray now lives here:

http://jaginc.com/arbiters/mrichtel

This issue exists for many of the pages in the site.  Do we handle the issue with simple URL redirects?
