Ineffective Assistance of Counsel

Ineffective assistance of counsel is something that is often mistaken for legal malpractice. Legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer is thought to have operated with their client below an acceptable standard of legal professionalism.

If you were involved in a criminal case, and you believe the reason you lost was because your attorney made several mistakes or was incompetent, this can be used as grounds to appeal based on ineffective assistance of counsel.

If you were involved in a criminal case, and you feel you were misrepresented in this type of way and unfairly lost, then you will want to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you use ineffective assistance of counsel as grounds for an appeal, which may get you a chance at another, more fair trial.

Some of the key indicators that you fell victim to a case of ineffective assistance of counsel include:

  • You had a defense lawyer who would skip consulting with you and go with his own strategies.
  • Notices were filed late or not at all during your criminal case.
  • You noted unprofessional behavior, such as unruly conduct, lying, or tardiness.
  • You had a difficult time communicating with your lawyer.
  • They don’t seem to know what they were doing in the courtroom.

If you live in or around Denver, Golden, Lakewood, Evergreen, Conifer, Arvada, Littleton, Broomfield, Westminster, Wheat Ridge, Thornton, as well as other cities in and around Jefferson and Adams Counties, and you feel that you were unfairly represented in a criminal trial that you lost, then call the Law Offices of D.R.
