Strickland v. Washington, 466 U.S. 668 (1984), was a landmark Supreme Court case that established the standard for determining when a criminal defendant's Sixth Amendment right to counsel is violated by that counsel's inadequate performance. The Court, in a decision by Justice O'Connor, established a two-part test for an ineffective assistance of counsel claim: * Counsel's performance fell below an objective standard of reasonableness. * Counsel's performance gives rise to a reasonable probability that if counsel had performed adequately, the result would have been different.

Holding
  • To obtain relief because of ineffective assistance of counsel, a criminal defendant must show both that counsel's performance fell below an objective standard of reasonableness and that counsel's deficient performance gives rise to a reasonable probability that if counsel had performed adequately, the result of the proceeding would have been different.

has abstract
  • Strickland v. Washington, 466 U.S. 668 (1984), was a landmark Supreme Court case that established the standard for determining when a criminal defendant's Sixth Amendment right to counsel is violated by that counsel's inadequate performance. The Court, in a decision by Justice O'Connor, established a two-part test for an ineffective assistance of counsel claim: * Counsel's performance fell below an objective standard of reasonableness. * Counsel's performance gives rise to a reasonable probability that if counsel had performed adequately, the result would have been different. The decision was a compromise by the majority in which the varying "tests for ineffective performance of counsel" among the federal circuits and state supreme courts were forced into a singular middle ground test. State governments are free to create a test even more favorable to an appellant.
