Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
If you believe that your attorney did not properly handle your case, you may have a claim for ineffective assistance of counsel. This means is exactly what it says – your counsel (another word for attorney) did not effectively assist you with your case.
Claims for ineffective assistance of counsel can take many forms, including failing to properly investigate, failing to discuss the case or your defenses, failing to make proper motions and objections at trial, and failure to follow the proper legal procedures.
Some errors by your attorney can be sufficient enough to actually undo a guilty verdict and get you a new trial, so it’s always worth discussing your rights to see if an error has been made.
