Hire an Escondido Lawyer!

More Than Three Decades of Service to Local Communities

I, Richard L. Duquette, am a community attorney who is ready to walk you through each step of your legal matter! I am an Escondido attorney who has spent the last nearly 35 years serving the local area. When you bring your legal matter to my law firm, the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette, you can trust that you will get the one-on-one attention you need for your proper handling of your case.

You can also rest assured that you are working with a well-respected attorney who has made notable strides in his legal career. I have received the following professional accomplishments: inclusion in San Diego Magazine's list of 2013 Top Lawyers in San Diego, a 10.0 Superb rating by Avvo, the Avvo Clients' Choice Award for 2012 and an AV Preeminent® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®. Furthermore, my law firm has demonstrated a high standard for client service through its accreditation by the Better Business Bureau®.

Handling Personal Injury & Criminal Defense Cases

All it takes is one act of negligence to cause a serious accident that could dramatically affect a victim's life. At my law firm, I am able to handle a diverse range of personal injury claims and lawsuits, including those that have to do with premises liability accidents (accidents that occur on others' property), car accidents, motorcycle accidents and more.

As an experienced Escondido personal injury attorney, I know how to help clients improve their effectiveness in pursuing full compensation for their losses. Bicycle injuries are a major area of personal injury law that I cover. In addition to having a Traffic Skills 101 Certificate issued by the League of American Bicyclists, I am also a cyclist who has been riding for years. Call me if you are looking for an Escondido bicycle accident lawyer who truly understands the dynamics involved in these types of cases!

Criminal defense is another key area within my legal practice. When individuals are arrested and charged with crimes in the local area, they need a seasoned Escondido criminal defense attorney who can protect their rights in each phase of their criminal proceedings. Whether you are accused of committing an offense of driving under the influence (DUI) or you are charged with a serious violent crime, I can represent you in court and fight for your freedom. I can adults, as well as younger individuals who are accused of juvenile crimes.

Military veterans are more than welcome to bring their legal matters to my firm. I am knowledgeable of the special issues that affect veterans in criminal defense and personal injury cases, such as how these individuals are impacted by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I can also represent clients who need representation in their administrative license and professional license hearings.
