An Ex Parte Happy Hour | COVID-19's Impact on Our Firm | Scrofano Law PC

On April 10, 2020, almost a month after the US shut down, our lawyers held a Zoom happy hour during the height of lock down. Courts and schools were closed and Mayor Muriel Bowser's then-Stay-at-Home Order was in full effect. So, we decided to record the Zoom call as a sort of time capsule and turned it into the video below.
In the video, our lawyers get personal while discussing issues ranging from parenting in quarantine to coping with the increased stress brought on by the major disruption of life and firm operations. Its been a long journey as we are now attending in person court hearings in masks, adjusting to video court when available, and adapted our operations to remotely serve our clients.
When the pandemic hit, we closed our physical office space on March 17, 2020. During our morning zoom calls that first week, three of six members on our team ended up sick one after another.
This all happened at the onset of the pandemic when no testing was available and folks were scrambling to purchase toilet paper. While three people were sick and the remaining three were unsure who might get sick next, it was a very scary time in our firm's history. Fortunately, everyone recovered and we resumed full operations after about two weeks.
While we discuss some serious topics, we had some fun putting this video together as we discussed what the first few weeks were like. We hope you do as well watching it. We hope you’ll consider yourself part of our #wolfpack and know that we are here for you if the unthinkable happens and a friend or loved one is arrested in DC, Maryland, or Northern Virginia

How to Find Someone Arrested in DC

In this video, attorney Joseph Scrofano explains what happens when someone is arrested in DC. Often times police will give inaccurate information about where your friend or loved one will be taken and when they will see a judge and potentially be released. At Scrofano Law PC, we routinely help individuals find their friend or loved one after arrest, visit them at Central Cell Block, and appear in Court to get them released. If the unthinkable has happened, contact us today at 202.389.6025.

General information

Raised in Texas where I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with Special Honors, I moved to Washington, DC in 2005 to attend American University's Washington College of Law. I graduated from American University's dual JD/MA program in 2008. I spent two years clerking for the Honorable Natalia Combs Greene in the DC Superior Court where I worked on hundreds of complex civil and criminal cases. That experience gave me unique insight on how judges make decisions and respond to legal arguments. In 2010, in a tough economy, with a desire to fight for those in need, I took a chance and started Scrofano Law. Since that time, I have represented over 300 clients in DC Superior Court with an overwhelming majority of cases resulting in dismissals, not guilty verdicts, or probationary sentences.

Our Story

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.
