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.
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.
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:
We represent clients in some of the most challenging drug cases. Look through our past wins to see firsthand how we’ve defended those clients and won.
Many of our past clients have shared their experiences online, and we’re honored to have helped them. Read through our positive online reviews.

Your side of the story matters, so we start by listening. We’ll start planning for your defense at the meeting. Whether or not you choose to hire us, you’ll leave with a wealth of information from one the toughest criminal defense firm in Savannah, Georgia.
Keeping your record clear is our primary goal. We want our clients to walk away from their charges proudly and return to their normal lives. We achieve that through:
Put simply, we work harder than the opposite team. We prepare more thoroughly than the prosecution and arresting officer, so we are better able to find cracks in their case. Our preparation includes:
If law enforcement made a mistake, we will find it.
When you’re fighting for your rights, you want the strongest team on your side. At The Claiborne Firm, that team includes a former assistant district attorney for Chatham County. Our lead criminal defense attorney spent years prosecuting criminal charges. He knows how the other side fights, including the habits and preferences of the judges, prosecutors, and police officers. His experience gives you an advantage you can’t find at other criminal defense firms.
A criminal record can follow you throughout your life, making it harder to find a job, apply for an apartment, enroll in school, apply for student loans, and maintain your credit score. Keeping your record free of charges means you can pursue the kind of life you want to leave. You have choices. And you don’t face judgement for your past mistakes.
