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.

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!”
