Mr Fahim Khan is a Senior Associate of Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

He is an exceptional criminal defence lawyer with several years of experience in a wide range of criminal law and traffic cases.

Over the years, Fahim has built a reputation as a highly knowledgeable, strategically-minded lawyer and a formidable courtroom advocate.

Fahim is known for his expertise in complex crime, having developed an outstanding track record in successfully defending commercial drug cases, sexual assaults, complex fraud and murder allegations.

What Fahim's Clients Say

Excellent results

Great service. Thanks Fahim for your great work. Excellent results. More than happy to refer to friends in future

Presented such a good case that the jury came back not guilty within half an hour

Thanks to COVID and other delays, the matter our family had to deal with had dragged on for more than three years -- then Fahim Khan (solicitor) and Jack Tyler-Stott (barrister) presented such a good case that the jury came back not guilty within half an hour. We can't imagine a better result! Fahim did meticulous work, cutting through a lot of clutter, and giving strong advice on how best to present ourselves on the stand. Jack was very reassuring, dismantled the prosecution's wilder claims, and made sure the truth of our statements was obvious. Thanks for dealing so well with an anxious and overthinking defendant, and congratulations on such a success!

A much better sentence than what we were expecting

Very happy with the manner in which I was represented by Fahim Kahn. Very easy to speak to and straight to the point when discussing the lead up to sentencing. On sentencing day the knowledge and experience shown by Fahim was amazing. Despite police and the crimes manager being difficult to deal with leading up to the day, Fahim stayed calm and respectful and through discussions with the prosecution, was able to achieve an amended facts sheet without going to a dispute the facts hearing. This lead to a 15-20 minute sentencing hearing and a much better sentence than what we were expecting.

He was very prepared

Fahim was my lawyer and I had concerns in the beginning and I didn’t receive much communication leading up to my case. On the day he was very prepared and got me an almost I achievable outcome. Very happy

The case and court appearances where handled with a high level of professionalism

Very happy with the outcome of my case and very satisfied with the effort and work put in by Fahim Khan. The case and court appearances where handled with a high level of professionalism. Would highly recommend his work. Absolute quality here 10/10.

Respected from everyone who works in the court

Fahim is an outstanding lawyer. I would definitely recommend Fahim and the other lawyers at Sydney Criminal Lawyer SCL to anyone involved in a criminal matter. I thought facing court would never happen to me, however life proved the opposite. My matter apparently simple on the surface was actually complex with a lot of intricacies. Fahim took me through it with simplicity and translated it for police and court. On the day of the hearing, he did some remarkable back and forth negotiations with prosecution, explained to me the options available and made critical changes to the facts sheet accepted by police. I was impressed and I am not sure other lawyers would have obtained the same result. He will take care of your case and speak well in front of the Magistrate. He is quick-witted and articulate which gives him an edge on prosecution. He is also respected from everyone who works in the court. He achieved the best possible outcome which was a no conviction. Thanks so much, Fahim. I wish you the overwhelming success you deserve.
