This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Claiborne’s comment: “The rules say we can't threaten criminal proscution when clients steal from us. WE FIGHT HARD FOR YOU AND ONLY ASK THAT YOU PAY US. Please dont engage us unless you can afford us, we are experts and it costs a bit more but its worth it. Obviously, I respect the opinion of the TN BPR. they were right, I was wrong!”

I hired attorney Claiborne Ferguson after I was arrested and was scared into pleading guilty to a crime I didn't commit and I had hired 2 previous Attorney who was working with the prosecutor's office against me and wen I contacted attorney Ferguson he seemed to have already known wat was going on I let him know that I was innocent of all charges and I put my trust in him that he would not go against me to satisfy the prosecutor who was just trying to find a guilty plea the 1st attorney had me to sign wat I thought was a form for my source hearing for me to get out on bond which he had me to sign for 5 year's without Probation for a crime I did not commit and I'm so happy that I ran across attorney Ferguson website and he totally understand that I'm innocent and he's willing to prove my innocence I've even spoken highly of him on all of the radio stations in Tennessee and bragged about wat he's going to do to help me thank you Attorney Ferguson

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Claiborne is hardworking, smart, and very insightful. We worked together on capital case with difficult facts and the death penalty was not waived. The client received a life-sentence. He is a great teammate and he would be my go-to-guy for any client I had if he/she is alleged to have done anything criminal while in Tennessee. An excellent attorney.
