My attorney did a terrible job at my trial and I want to file an appeal based on their poor performance. Can I do this?

Generally, a claim for ineffective assistance of counsel is brought by way of a motion for post-conviction relief, also known as a 3.850 motion. However, ineffective assistance of counsel can be raised on direct appeal if it can be shown on the face of the record that the attorney provided ineffective assistance of counsel.
