Our history

Our Office was founded by Dr. Luís Simeão Mendes, in September 1946. Since the beginning, the Office has been well-known in Madeira and the founder’s second and third generation continues to practice law in Madeira with the same principles and professional values.

Luís Simeão Mendes

Born on January 5, 1914, in the parish of Porto da Cruz (Madeira), Luis Simeão Mendes went to Coimbra, at the age of 13, to complete his studies at Colégio Luís de Camões. In 1934 he was admitted to the Lisbon Faculty of Law, where he graduated in 1939. Between 1940 and 1945 he completed his military service in Madeira island. In 1946, Luis Simeão Mendes began his professional career as a Lawyer, firstly with an office in Santa Cruz and, since 1952, in Funchal, where he settled with an office at Rua Padre Gonçalves da Câmara, practicing until the end of his life. He died on September 26, 1993, at the age of 79.
