Indira Khan has been practicing criminal law in New York since her admission to the Bar in January of 2007. She is admitted to practice in the Second Judicial Department as well as the Eastern, Southern, and Western Districts of New York, and New Jersey.

Indira is a member of the New York State Bar Association in addition to Queens County Bar Association.  Indira is a former Assistant District Attorney ("ADA"), who worked in the Kings County District Attorney's Office, Crimes Against Children Bureau. As former ADA, Indira was responsible for and managed a caseload of approximately seventy (70) child abuse and neglect cases. During her time at the Kings County District Attorney's Office, her duties included but was not limited to conducting arraignments, appearing in court on a daily basis, conducting plea negotiations, researching, and drafting responses to motions. In addition, Indira helped to create new precedence in the area of Child Swearability and/or Voir Dire of a Child Witness with her winning response to an Omnibus Motion on stated topic. See People v. L.G. 18 Misc.3d 243 (2007). Indira's focus is mainly on criminal defense litigation, but she is also an excellent legal writer and researcher as evident by the fact that Indira was an adjunct professor at Briarcliffe College, where she taught undergraduates interested in pursuing careers in law and public service courses such as Legal Research and Writing, Criminal Procedure, Introduction to Criminal Law, Introduction to the Law, and Litigation.

Indira's passion to help others in need (as exemplified by the fact that she was the recipient of the NYC Family Court Pro Bono Service Award, April 2011 and May 2012) coupled with her ten years of experience as an attorney distinguishes her from other attorneys. She, as well as the other staff members of the Law Office of Robert DiDio & Associates, are committed to giving each case the particularized attention it deserves and to tirelessly protecting the constitutional rights of each individual at every stage of a criminal prosecution.
