Assault Offences

Assault Charges are some of the most common that are laid in NSW. Being charged with such an offence must be taken seriously as severe penalties can be imposed. 

Offences range from Common Assault NSW (whether in a domestic setting or otherwise) to more serious forms of offences against the person, such as reckless wounding and inflicting grievous bodily harm. The range of offending covers anything from a mere touching of another to using a weapon to inflict serious injury.

Often, assaults are alleged to have occurred in circumstances where conflict has arisen between two or more people. In such circumstances, self-defence can often be raised.

In deciding to lay assault charges NSW Police generally rely heavily on a complaint made by the alleged victim, however, there are circumstances where someone can be charged with and found "guilty" of an assault even where a victim has not given a statement.

Prime Lawyers have vast experience in representing people accused of assault offences. We are experienced in successfully defending allegations and, where necessary, representing those who have pleaded "guilty" to an assault offence and obtaining a lesser penalty on sentence.

If you are facing assault charges (NSW) and require legal assistance, we invite you to contact your nearest Prime Lawyers office.
