Steve Duckett was born and raised in Northern Virginia. He left the area to pursue his education, graduating from the University of Richmond with a Political Science and Economics degree in 1994. Since graduating from law school in 1997, he has practiced nothing but criminal law in the various District and Circuit Courts throughout Northern Virginia.
Steve is widely known for his proactive, innovative trial techniques and excellent client relationships. Steve Duckett has successfully defended people from all walks of life, including CEO’s, professional athletes, White House and Congressional staff, and many others. One source of pride for Mr. Duckett is the many clients he represents who come to him by way of referrals from previous clients. The high esteem in which he is held within the Virginia court system is reflected in the perfect 10/10 “Superb” rating he maintains from the attorney peer review site AVVO. Perhaps most notably, he was chosen as one of Northern Virginia Magazine’s top lawyers – resulting from a poll of fellow Northern Virginia attorneys.
Mr. Duckett believes that the key to a successful attorney-client relationship is communication. All calls and emails are answered within one day, when possible, and all clients will be regularly kept informed of any progress or developments in their case. In court, Mr. Duckett aggressively fights for his clients at all stages of the case, and takes great satisfaction when his clients walk away from the courthouse knowing their attorney did everything possible to ensure a favorable legal outcome.
In his free time, Steve coaches basketball at a local high school, enjoys attending live concerts and sporting events, and spending time with his wife and family.
