If you believe the attorney you asked to represent you in a case did not handle things correctly, did not work with you about the case and maybe didn’t even remember your name, and you feel the guilty verdict could have been avoided, you may be able to appeal the verdict on the basis of ineffective assistance of counsel. And if the lawyer only did a few hours work on your case, the bar association may say the fees were unreasonable and require you to receive a refund. In an action for malpractice, you would have to show that you might not have been found guilty if not for the actions of your lawyer, a claim that can often be difficult to prove.
