Carrying On the Family Legacy

The Law Offices Mendez & Mendez, P.A. was founded in 1984 by Luis F. Mendez and his son, Sergio L. Mendez. Luis Mendez began his career as an attorney in 1950, working for Pan American Airlines in Cuba, before moving to the United States with his family in 1962 at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Luis went back to law school for the second time in 1969 and earned his degree at the University of Miami in 1972. Luis worked as a solo practitioner for more than 10 years and co-founded the Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) in 1976.

Sergio would follow in his father’s footsteps, joining him in 1984 after graduating from Suffolk University. For almost two decades, father and son worked side-by-side at Mendez & Mendez in Coral Gables, Florida, specializing in real estate law and commercial litigation. Luis continued to practice into his 80s, retiring in 2001. Sergio continued where his father left off and established himself as a prominent probate and real estate attorney, thanks to the guidance and mentoring of his father.

Sergio’s son, Daniel, joined the firm in 2014, carrying on the family legacy at Mendez & Mendez. A third-generation attorney, Daniel has excelled in his fields of practice, focusing on estate planning, probate and guardianship administration and litigation, and civil litigation. Alongside his father, he has become accomplished in his own right working on cases that have set the precedent for future probate law, thus continuing the standard of excellence that Mendez & Mendez has established since its founding.
