Case Quote - United States v. Cronic, 466 U.S. 648, 655-56 (1984)

"The right to the effective assistance of counsel is thus the right of the accused to require the prosecution's case to survive the crucible of meaningful adversarial testing. When a true adversarial criminal trial has been conducted ... the kind of testing envisioned by the Sixth Amendment has occurred. But if the process loses its character as a confrontation between adversaries, the constitutional guarantee is violated."—United States v. Cronic, 466 U.S. 648, 655-56 (1984)
