Encinitas Lawyer

Nearly 38 Years of Experience Serving the Local Area

At my legal practice, the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette, I am proud to serve the people of Encinitas, California, a coastal city that is located in San Diego County, California. I, Richard L. Duquette, am an Encinitas attorney who has been serving clients in local communities for three decades. Clients from various Encinitas and neighboring communities (such as Cardiff and Leucadia) can turn to my firm for the personalized attention and skilled advocacy that they truly deserve.

Would you like to work with an attorney who has been validated through the peer review process and through notable professional accolades? If so, you have turned to the right place. I am a lawyer who has received an AV Preeminent® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® (with an overall score of 4.8 out of 5.0), an Avvo rating of 10.0 Superb and an Avvo Clients' Choice Award for the year of 2012. Furthermore, in 2013, San Diego Magazine named me among the Top Lawyers in San Diego. In addition to being an accomplished legal professional, I am also a cyclist who loves to remain active in local events and who loves to give back to the community.

Assisting with a Broad Spectrum of Legal Needs

Here are just a few examples of the many different types of cases that I am equipped to handle:

  • Criminal Defense: My law firm takes action to protect the rights and futures of those who have been charged with crimes in and around Encinitas. In addition to challenging charges for driving under the influence (or DUI charges), I also challenge charges for many other crimes. Were you accused of committing a violent crime? What about drug crime or theft crime? I can assist with criminal defense in these types of charges and many others.
  • Personal Injury (Including Bicycle Accidents): Injury victims can turn to my law firm for an unrelenting legal advocate who will push for the highest level of financial compensation on their behalf. As an Encinitas personal injury attorney, I handle all types of personal injury claims and lawsuits. I am well-versed in the dynamics involved in bicycle accidents, especially since I am a cyclist and an attorney who has obtained the Traffic Skills 101 Certificate from the League of American Bicyclists. When you want a competent Encinitas bicycle lawyer on your side, my law firm is the place to turn to for help! Cases for premises liability accidents, car accidents and motorcycle accidents are a few other types of cases I handle.
  • Cases for Military Veterans: My firm is prepared to handle legal matters for military veterans. I understand the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how this can potentially play a factor in criminal defense and personal injury cases.
  • Administrative & Professional License Hearings: Is you are at risk of having your professional license revoked? If so, I can represent you in your administrative or professional license hearing so that you can increase your chances of reaching a favorable outcome. I understand that it can be extremely damaging to lose your contractor's license, legal licenses, medical license, pilot license, etc. I also help clients fight to protect their driving privileges.
