What is an assault?

An assault is where one person either intentionally or recklessly applies force to another person. It can also be where one person intentionally or recklessly causes another person to apprehend that force will be applied.

For example, if one person punched another person in the face, they would be guilty of an assault. If that same person pretended to punch another person in the face and made that person flinch, they would also be guilty of an assault.

Are there different types of assault in Victoria?

In Victoria, there are 4 main assault charges (excluding sexual assaults).

Do I need an Assault Lawyer?

Court can be an intimidating place. There are many people involved who don’t have your best interests at heart. These include the court staff, prosecutors and magistrate. You need someone to stand up for your rights to help you achieve the best outcome.

If you choose not to hire an experienced assault lawyer, you might seriously affect your future. This could include a criminal record and a gaol sentence. We only do criminal law. Some firms are considered ‘general practice’ law firms. This means they provide a range of legal services (e.g. family law, contested wills and estate planning, personal injury, commercial, etc). But it’s usually best to hire a specialised criminal law firm.

Please contact us if you’ve been charged with assault. It’s a serious matter and we want to help you. Our criminal lawyers are experienced in representing clients charged with various assault offences.
