At MTM Legal, our Sydney lawyers are willing to act on your behalf to access the compensation you deserve after a sexual assault has occurred.

We offer personalised services to ensure you feel valued and understood. Call us today to see how we can help you.
Our sexual assault lawyers in Sydney take a personal interest in your case from the beginning until the end. We are happy and willing to discuss your case and provide advice or refer you to an expert who can help you. Also, you do not have to pay our legal fees unless you win your case. We will help you claim compensation for an injury you have suffered from sexual abuse either from the individual who carried out the abuse or from an institution if the assault happened while you attended or were part of the institution.
We know the effects of sexual abuse can be long-standing and can adversely affect one’s mental well-being. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the assault, you can claim under the National Redress Scheme or Common Law. It is possible to claim under the National Redress Scheme if the assault happened when you were under 18 years and in the care of an institution participating in the Redress Scheme. Conversely, you could claim under Common Law. We will advise which is the best avenue for your particular circumstances so you can make an informed decision.
At MTM Legal, our sexual assault lawyers in Sydney will advise you on the best option (whether Redress or Common Law). However, you cannot claim under the Redress Scheme and make another compensation claim under Common Law. Given the serious nature of sexual assault charges, the court will often advise you to get a lawyer if you do not have one. So, the best course is to contact MTM Legal as soon as possible.
We believe that the law can and should serve everyone, not just those who can afford it. For this reason, we dedicate ourselves to helping you win your case and only request payment once we are on the winning side.
