Young Entrepreneur
of the Year

Award Winner
What is the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award? An individual under the age of 40 who demonstrates excellent standards of business, has made sustained contributions to the business community, and who functions as a trailblazer and role model for workplace peers is how we define it.
 
This individual started in his law practice December 2019, immediately after being sworn in as an attorney by Assemblyman Kevin Kiley. Headed into his second year of practice, COVID-19 hit, changing the way many of us do business. Since COVID-19, he has transitioned to an entirely remote practice, utilizing software such as Zoom, Slack, and Box to meet with clients, and collaborate with his legal assistant. His practice area focus prior to the pandemic was mainly business law, including corporation formation and providing general counsel to small businesses. While this is still an area of his practice today, his focus has shifted significantly towards real estate law. Changing state laws during COVID-19 have put tremendous pressure on landlords.

Despite the challenges of this past year, by pivoting his focus, his law practice has grown. He hired his first employee, then another. Even with the added expenses of employment, his profit grew by over 150% in 2020.

Due to in-person event and COVID-19 restrictions this past year, this individual had to find other ways to stay connected. In 2020 he joined the board of the El Dorado Hills Chamber’s Business and Community Political Action Committee (BACPAC). Additionally, he supports ELDO Young Professionals, since his wife Brianna is the founder.

Congratulations Kevin Duewel from Law Office of Kevin Duewel, the recipient of the 2020 Young Entrepreneur of the Year!
