Call us now for a free 15-minute phone conference with one of our leading criminal lawyers. Our assault lawyers in Sydney can provide you 24/7 assitance.

Criminal lawyers from our firm regularly appear for clients charged with common assault, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and assault occasioning grievous bodily harm. Our principal criminal defence lawyer, Mohammad Khan, has an outstanding record of representing our clients.

The charges can range from simple assault to assault causing physical harm to more severe assaults like intentional injury. Frequently, when filing a charge for common assault, the NSW Police also include it as a secondary charge to more serious crimes. This often leads to clients initially facing multiple charges stemming from a single incident.

In such situations, our skilled criminal lawyers possess the capability to protect against more severe accusations by invoking self-defence or by demonstrating that the authorities lack the evidence to prove that our client is responsible for the alleged harm.

On certain occasions, we manage to convince the police, prior to the case being brought to court, that they cannot substantiate the more serious offence, which enables us to negotiate a guilty plea for a lesser charge of common assault. This can frequently determine whether our client will face imprisonment or, in some instances, escape with no criminal record.

The majority of assault charges are dealt with in the Local Court of NSW. Nevertheless, it is crucial to acknowledge that all assault charges are considered to be of a serious nature. As a result, it is imperative to enlist the expertise of a seasoned criminal defence lawyer when appearing before the Court.

Common Assault Lawyer

Common assault occurs when a person intentionally or recklessly does something that causes someone else to fear immediate and illegal violence. The maximum punishment in New South Wales, as stated in section 61 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW), is a two-year prison sentence. It is one of the most prevalent offences in NSW.

Examples of actions that may lead to a common assault charge are:

  • Physically striking, punching, or kicking someone without causing physical harm
  • Spitting on someone
  • Making immediate threats of violence towards another person.

To be convicted of common assault, the prosecutor must prove, with certainty and beyond reasonable doubt:

You physically attacked, made physical contact with, or used physical force against another individual, or you made a threat of immediate violence towards someone.

  • You had the intention to do so or you were careless in your actions.
  • You acted without the permission of the other person.
  • You acted without a valid reason that is recognized by the law.

A court has the authority to impose any of the following punishments for a typical assault:

  • Imprisonment, which may include being confined to your home.
  • An intensive correction order.
  • A community correction order.
  • A conditional release order with a conviction.
  • Section 10.
  • A monetary fine.

Example of Assault Charges In NSW


There are various types of assault offences that are described in the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). Some instances that could be considered as assault include:


  • Domestic abuse;
  • Engaging in a physical fight with someone and causing them harm;
  • Engaging in a physical altercation with someone without causing them harm;
  • Deliberately hitting someone and causing their death;
  • Certain types of bullying that occur within schools; and
  • Engaging in sexual intercourse with someone without their consent.

Assault offences are extremely serious and carry severe penalties. The punishments can range from fines, probation and imprisonment. With the exception of common assault, all forms of assault will result in a criminal conviction, which means that the offence will be recorded on your criminal record.
