How to Fight Back Against Ineffective Assistance of Counsel

One of the best parts of being an American citizen is that we are all legally obligated to effective counsel in a court case, even if we can’t afford it.  In the majority of cases, the attorney provides a high level of assistance to the client, acting in their best interest from start to finish.  In some cases, counsel is found to have acted poorly or that they were prejudicial when defending you.  These types of errors in a court case won’t result in a fair outcome and most cases result in unfair convictions and heartache for everyone involved.  There are ways to fight back against this injustice, with the help of an attorney you can trust.

Ineffective assistance of counsel is a real problem in today’s court systems.   With these types of cases, the defendant will file a claim stating that they lost their case and were convicted because there were errors made by the attorney during the process.  When these types of claims are found to be true, the conviction is thrown out, or as the courts refer to it, the conviction is “reversed,” making it seem like the whole episode never happened allowing you to get back to your life.

If you were convicted of a crime and your attorney didn’t fully investigate important acts and details of your case, or if they give you bad advice or failed to tell you about a plea bargain option, then you may have a case.  While you will have to prove that inefficient counsel directly resulted in your conviction, this can be fairly simple in many cases.

You deserve an attorney who will represent your rights and push for justice.  If you feel that you’ve been the victim of ineffective assistance of counsel, contact a legal team who can take a second look at your case.  It’s worth looking into when it could mean your freedom and your future.  Don’t let a wrongful conviction destroy your life and your family’s life.  Contact an attorney today for help.
