I have known Richard Duquette for over twenty years. We have worked together on cases, and I have referred criminal cases to him. I believe that he exemplifies an attorney who practices law at the highest ethicaand professional levels. He is a very compassionate advocate who really cares about his clients. He can be aggressive but not unprofessional or unreasonable. I wouldn 't hestitate to recommend him or to work with him again. He really is a very fine attorney.

No criminal defense attorney works harder. No criminal defense lawyer prepares better. No attorney does more research. No lawyer has had better training. These are just some of the reasons why Richard Duquette deserves the very highest of Criminal Defense Attorney credentials.

As for communication ability, he thinks fast and wants fast answers. Thus, some may feel put off by his abrupt and matter of fact style. Otherwise, he is a very capable attorney and is well trained.
