At ScrofanoLaw PC, we know that choosing a criminal defense attorney in Washington, DC can be a hard decision. First and foremost, we urge you to choose an attorney who you trust will look out for your best interests. This means choosing a criminal defense who is not only skilled and has experience handling cases in the District of Columbia, but is also an attorney who will take the time to fully communicate with you, and is available for any questions and concerns you may have.
You should select an attorney who is willing to fight for your rights no matter how large the obstacles may be in any given case. You want an attorney who has a firm belief that it is his job to stand up to the government. This means taking cases to trial when necessary. While many law firms will pressure clients to take a plea deal, even if it is not beneficial to the client, you want someone who truly understands that when you take a bad plea deal, you lose every time.
You also want to make sure you choose a Washington, DC criminal defense attorney who really practices in the District of Columbia. All too often we see attorneys with offices in Maryland and Virginia who occasionally handle cases in the District of Columbia. These are the attorneys who we don’t recognize in court, and they are easy to spot because they don’t know the proper procedures, or even what to say during an arraignment.
