Right to Post-Conviction Relief Following Ineffective Counsel

If you were represented by a West Palm Beach post-conviction lawyer with whom you are dissatisfied, and you were convicted and sentenced after a plea or trial while represented by this attorney, you may be entitled to relief under Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure 3.850 or 3.800.

This maintains that the judge can vacate your judgment and sentence if counsel was deemed to be ineffective, or in other words, if your criminal defense lawyer at the time failed to defend your case within the standards required under Florida law.

Examples of ineffective assistance of counsel include:

  • Failing to investigate your case
  • Failing to call essential witnesses
  • Failing to properly cross-examine witnesses
  • Failing to make significant objections
  • Failing to request applicable jury instructions and raise applicable defenses
  • Failing to communicate plea offers rendered by the state prior to trial
  • Providing affirmative misinformation about your case or the consequences of you entering a plea of guilty

Motions for post-conviction relief are often the last avenue of relief for defendants in Florida courts. Post-conviction issues are complex, requiring an in-depth review of the work done by previous counsel, as well as the development of a sound legal strategy designed to effectively show that the verdict result would have been different if trial counsel had not been ineffective. Post-conviction motions are also time-sensitive, as they must be filed within 2 years of the judgment in the case becoming final.
