The 'DCS - Law Firm RL' is the formalization of a personal and professional relationship between founder partners, who share the same ethical and professional values.


In 1996, Dulce Duque began the advocacy practice as freelanceer lawyer, in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, with office in Funchal. Dulce Duque has dedicated to issues related to Civil, Criminal and Labor Laws.

The common experience of the practice of advocacy, and coordination of the different areas of intervention, allied with the identity of professional values and personal, have built a solid relationship, that culminated in the foundation of DCS in July 2006.
