Question: What does ineffective assistance of counsel mean in Wisconsin?

Answer: Ineffective assistance of counsel is two-pronged. The first deficiency prong is met when counsel’s standard of representation fell below an objective standard of reasonableness. The second prong to prove ineffective assistance is when the attorneys conduct likely altered the outcome of the case. The question is whether there’s a reasonable probability that there would have a different result, but for the attorney’s deficient performance. We have recently had three people released from prison because we were able to show their previous attorneys were ineffective in those respective cases.
