    Attorney Profile

    Jay P. Mykytiuk is a thoughtful, seasoned trial lawyer whose experience ranges from monitoring police department practices with the United States Department of Justice to representing indigent defendants with the Arlington County Public Defender’s Office. Born and raised in New England, Mr. Mykytiuk attended college in Connecticut before making Washington, D.C. his home in 1996. 

    During law school, Mr. Mykytiuk clerked with both The Cochran Firm and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. His exposure to both sides of the criminal justice system gave him a unique perspective that has served him well throughout his career.

    Mr. Mykytiuk  has represented hundreds of defendants charged with criminal and traffic offenses in state and federal courts in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. He received rigorous training in criminal trial defense at the Arlington County Public Defender’s Office, where he learned the ropes on traffic and misdemeanor cases, such as DUI, simple assault, theft, and prostitution. After graduating to serious felony matters, his case load included robberies, burglaries, drug conspiracies, fraud, and serious assaults. He wrote several criminal appeals and successfully overturned a multi-count embezzlement conviction. One former supervisor called Mr. Mykytiuk the best young attorney she saw come through the office.   

    Leaving the Public Defender’s Office for private practice, Mr. Mykytiuk joined the law firm of Regan Associates, Chartered. There, he continued to practice criminal defense, while expanding his expertise to immigration matters. He has helped clients successfully obtain green cards, become U.S. Citizens, bring loved ones to the United States, and fight removal actions. With this wealth of experience under his belt, Mr. Mykytiuk launched a solo practice, JPMLegal, in 2014, and joined the firm of Scrofano Law PC two years later. He continues to represent clients in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia in traffic, criminal, and immigration matters.

    Mr. Mykytiuk is licensed to practice law in Virginia and the District of Columbia, and is a member of the bar of the United States District Courts for the District of Columbia and the Eastern District of Virginia. He has been recognized as an expert in criminal justice by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, who has consulted with him on funding decisions for their Wrongful Conviction Review Program.
