What Do You Have to Show for Ineffective Assistance?

If you’ve received a guilty verdict in your federal criminal case, it’s important to remember that your legal battle is not over—It’s actually only beginning. Now is the time to consider your options and come up with the best course of action for your future. You may want to consider filing an appeal to get your sentence reduced or conviction overturned, potentially clearing your name entirely. While appeals are difficult to win, it is possible to receive your desired outcome with the help of a skilled federal appellate attorney. You can also file a post-conviction motion. Your lawyer will review every detail of your case and determine the most effective strategy, which may include proving that your initial trial attorney was ineffective. When you enlist the help of the Grabel & Associates team, you can rest assured that we will explore every option and come up with a unique approach that gives you the best shot at justice.

Winning an Ineffective Assistance of Counsel Challenge

The constitution outlines your right to an effective lawyer. If you believe the attorney that represented you during trial did not do his or her job, you may be able to present this to a judge and potentially have the outcome of your case reversed. If you want to successfully prove that your federal defense lawyer was ineffective, you need to show two things. The first is that your lawyer did not do their job as well as he or she should have. The second thing you need to show is that your attorney’s mistake mattered and had a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Your appellate lawyer will determine the best way to demonstrate these two things, putting you on course to receive a fair hearing.

When you work with a lawyer from Grabel & Associates, he or she will look over the details of your case and identify ways that your attorney did not do their job effectively. For example, if your lawyer did not interview witnesses to prepare your defense, they did not meet a reasonable standard of representation. Your new lawyer will then see how this shortcoming affected the outcome of your case, hopefully showing that if you had a skilled attorney, your case would have turned out differently. Bringing a seasoned federal defense attorney onboard for your appeal is extremely important and may mean the difference between an excessively harsh punishment and clearing your name. If you’ve received an unfavorable verdict in your federal criminal case, don’t hesitate to contact Grabel & Associates for more information about how we can help you succeed in the post-conviction stage of your case.
