Top Assault Lawyers Sydney

Our New South Wales Criminal Law team is highly experienced in representing clients who have been charged with assault offences at both Local Court and District Court levels. Assault charges cover a wide range of conduct, from something as simple as a push or punch to more serious matters including recklessly inflict grievous bodily harm and wounding with intent. This page provides information about our Sydney assault lawyers.

Urgent Legal Advice From Sydney Assault Lawyers

It is important that anyone who is charged, or might be charged, with an offence involving violence gets legal advice and representation as soon as possible. On many occasions our solicitors have taken initial conferences with clients who intend on pleading guilty to a charge, only to be advised that they might have a defensible case or that there is scope to negotiate the seriousness of the charge or to have the alleged facts amended.

It is also not uncommon for persons charged with assault to believe that they have no prospect of defending the charges simply because they are made to believe that the police case against them is strong. This may be because of CCTV footage or eyewitnesses. However, our team is experienced at identifying deficiencies in prosecution cases, ‘putting the prosecution to proof’ and determining whether self-defence may be available.

Where a person has been charged or is yet to be charged, it’s important to have a solicitor assisting with decisions about whether or not to participate in a police interview or consent to forensic procedures, whether to apply for bail (if applicable) and throughout the criminal matter.

Armstrong Legal’s Sydney Asasult Lawyers

While all our criminal lawyers appear in assault matters, the seriousness of the allegation (for example if the offence is to be finalised in the Local Court or the District Court, and whether there is a risk of full-time custody at sentence) will determine which solicitor best suits your matter. For one off-advice or representation, please feel free to call our lawyers on 1300 038 223 or send us an email to arrange an appointment with one of our Sydney lawyers who specialise in assault offences.
