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 have heard of lawyers and firms that have a good reputation. I have never experienced one before until coming in contact with Claiborne Ferguson. I contacted him by email about 10:30 pm on Friday with a crisis. I got a response back at 6:29 am on Saturday. I have never heard of firms working outside of Monday thru Friday business hours. I can say this firm does. They went well above and beyond what I expected from any firm. I am well pleased with their prompt responses to my crises situation. He did not stop until everything was taken care of completely. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone that need legal assistance.

Without saying what I was accused of...it wasnt a good case. I didnt di it, they believed me and got the case dismissed. Very pleased. It was a long process, would have liked it to have moved faster but they said time is always on my side. Guess they were right.

Everyone in the office was very kind and professional. The biggest strength of this company is that you get a team & not just someone trying to get rid of a case. I was kept informed step-by-step with my case & new information whenever it came up with my case. This is a great law firm & I would recommend this law firm to anyone.

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.
