We out here y'all. 5th and Indiana NW.
Friends, we will be opening up our office to protesters tomorrow to the extent space and social distancing permits. We do not have a huge amount of space but we do have a restroom available and will provide water and snacks and phone charging stations. We will require masks and social distancing to enter so please be respectful of that.
Scrofano Law PC has four criminal defense lawyers with extensive experience defending criminal cases in D.C. Superior Court. Collectively, we have defended thousands of criminal cases in this city. We have also sued officers who have engaged in excessive force and police brutality. We understand all too well how the criminal justice system works in this city and have borne witness to gross abuses and mistreatment of African American citizens that is so pervasive in the “system,” it is treated as normal. We publicly stand with those protesting police brutality, racism, and structural injustice in our society.
After the events of the last few days, we believe that the First Amendment of the Constitution is under attack. The current federal and local government response to the overwhelmingly peaceful protests in this city have been grossly disproportionate to the initial acts of vandalism and other illegal activity. In our view, the deployment of active duty military forces, deputization of prison riot guards and myriad additional federal agents, along with the constant low flying military helicopters throughout the night appears to be an attempt by the federal government to terrorize the citizens of this community into submission.
In our view, such a disproportionate response seeks to bully this community into abandoning support for peaceful protesters exercising their constitutional rights. These actions on the part of the federal and local government have had the opposite effect on us as a law firm and have only strengthened our resolve to support those protesting the murder of African American citizens under color of law. In addition, residents of the District of Columbia are uniquely vulnerable to federal government overreach due to our status as a federal district rather than a State or Commonwealth.
Going forward, we seek to provide our knowledge, resources, and energy as lawyers and citizens to supporting those who protest, including through acts of peaceful disobedience. To organizers, activists, and protesters, please contact us. We stand with you and are willing to help in any way we can.
We encourage other lawyers and law firms to join us in supporting those who protest racism, injustice, and police brutality.
Black Lives Matter.

In 2011, founding attorney Joseph Scrofano started Scrofano Law PC with a desire to fight to protect individuals facing an oppressive criminal justice system. For the first few years of Mr. Scrofano’s career he represented indigent clients as a member of the District of Columbia Criminal Justice Act Panel. Mr. Scrofano quickly gained a reputation as an aggressive advocate. During this time, he worked from home and typically did client meetings by doing home visits. He litigated hundreds of cases for crimes like DUI’s, hit and runs, solicitation, drugs, guns, assault, and violent felonies.
In 2013, he moved into full time office space and started marketing his practice through his “No Papered” Blog where he writes with a client-centered approach seeking to reverse roles with potential clients and giving valuable information through blog posts.
This approach was successful and Mr. Scrofano would go on to build a robust private criminal defense practice. In 2014, he moved into larger office space and began focusing almost exclusive on representing private clients.
Mr. Scrofano met another defense attorney who shared his values in fighting hard for clients against seemingly impossible odds. Jay Mykytiuk, a former Arlington County Public Defender, started to practice in criminal court in the District of Columbia while working as an associate in a DC law firm. Mr. Mykytiuk quit his firm to start his own practice--JPM Legal. Instead of competing against each other, Mr. Scrofano and Mr. Mykytiuk collaborated. In fact, Jay became Of Counsel to Scrofano Law PC in 2015 and represented clients in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax criminal cases. Mr. Scrofano saw up close the dedication Jay gave his cases and knew immediately Jay was someone Joseph wanted to work with.
Also, in 2014, a relatively new criminal defense attorney was causing waves and gaining a representation in the criminal defense bar as a tenacious advocate. Mr. Mutimer won his first 11 bench trials in the District of Columbia Superior Court, including a trial over a Bail Reform Act Violation, which was significant because many defense lawyers do not take these types of cases to trial because the government usually has an easy burden in proving a defendant intentionally failed to appear in court. With creative lawyering, Mr. Mutimer successfully obtained a not guilty for a client charged with a BRA in one of his first trials.
In 2014, Mr. Mutimer co-chaired a jury trial with Mr. Scrofano in case where the government had charged the client with unlawfully possessing a firearm. Despite multiple police officers who testified the client threw off a coat that contained a gun as he fled on foot, the jury hung and the prosecutor did not to re-file the charges.
In January of 2016, Joseph, Jay, and Christopher merged practices into Scrofano Law PC. All three got that, in any criminal charge, the government has vastly more resources than the defense. The law and the public are usually on their side. Together, they believed they could join their efforts and build a flourishing law firm.
The three chose to join together because they share the same values in representing the accused: honestly, commitment, and creativity. They chose to join forces together to build a firm that can level the playing field for those accused of crimes. They chose to work together to build a criminal defense law firm they can all be proud of—not an assembly line to walk clients through plea negotiations.
