The only possible case where your address details on every page could be considered duplicate content is where there is no (or very little) other content on the pages. In which case, duplicate content is the least of your problems.
Like DerekH, I've also had a site ranking consistently well with the same headers, footers, etc in each page. In fact I would guess that most people in this forum can say the same.
Furthermore, there are obviously benefits from having your address on every page - increased consumer confidence, possibly increased sales generation (depends on type of site though), easier for people to find, etc etc.
If you do not trust their expertise you have to ask yourself if you should be working with them in the first place. Do they do a good job at getting results for other clients? Have you spoken to those clients?
