Your Drug Charges Can Be Reduced or Dismissed

A Winning Track Record For Drug Cases

Defending The Drug Cases That Matter The Most

Fight Your Drug Charges and Win – Here’s How

Facing drug charges may seem hopeless, but people best their cases every day. At The Claiborne Firm, our mission is to get your charges completely dismissed and keep them off your criminal record. Being arrested for drug charges is not a guilty verdict.

The Stigma of Drug Charges in Our Society

A conviction for drug charges will affect you long after the immediate fines and potential jail time, making it that much harder to get your life back. That’s the truth, but it’s no reason to lose hope. Some of our clients have been rejected by every other lawyer they meet with before they talk to us. We don’t shy away from tough cases because we believe your story deserves to be told. And you should be able to tell it fearlessly.

We defend clients facing even the most serious charges, including:

  • • Possession
  • • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • • Possession with intent to distribute
  • • Conspiracy
  • • Drug trafficking
  • • Drug manufacturing
  • • Drug cultivation
  • • Marijuana charges
  • • Prescription drug charges
  • • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • • Juvenile drug charges

How We Defend Drug Charges

If you want to keep drug charges off your criminal record, your best strategy is to hire a defense team that will put in the work. We aggressively investigate every case we take on, including talking to witnesses, gathering evidence, and thoroughly reviewing police reports, court documents, bodycam footage, video feeds, and communications. Some common defenses we employ when defending drug charges include:

  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Lack of probable cause
  • Lack of reasonable suspicion
  • Law enforcement mistakes during arrest
  • Faulty lab tests
  • Procedural mistakes during testing
  • Lack of possession or knowledge of possession
  • Substance use disorder that requires treatment, not punishment

  • • Working toward the most positive outcome for your case
  • • Keeping your record free of charges

What We Do to Win

  • • Conducting an independent investigation
  • • Working quickly to preserve evidence
  • • Interviewing witnesses
  • • Collecting evidence like video feeds, audio recordings, and forensics
  • • Reviewing police reports, court documents, and bodycam footage


If law enforcement made a mistake, we will find it.
