We have advised clients in many cases relating to assault. It is understood that the judiciary always treat any criminal offence relating to violence very seriously and that preparation of any assault charge defence is important to achieving the right outcome for our clients.

Do I Need A Lawyer For Assault Charges?

As mentioned, assault charges are treated very seriously. There are a variety of criminal offences that fall under the category of “assault”. Some of them include unlawful assault, assault occasioning bodily harm, assault in company, recklessly causing injury, negligently causing serious injury, unlawfully wounding,  intentionally causing injury or serious injury, conduct endangering persons or life, affray and even riot. They are all serious offences in the eyes of the law.

The rough definition of assault is where a person strikes, touches, moves or applies force to another, either directly or indirectly, without the other persons consent. Threatening to commit these actions with the ability to do so can also be considered as an assault.

In many cases, clients are charged with more than one of the above offences. It is not uncommon for matters of assault to have more than one defendant or accused party. This can influence how you respond and prepare a defence of an assault charge.

Understanding the facts and knowing how to respond can only be achieved if you contact us. All advice on the internet is general and should not be considered as factual to your situation.

If you are facing assault charges of any kind, the importance of engaging a criminal lawyer to assist you cannot be overstated.
