The Firm’s Vision

The firm also handles divorce filings, including alimony for wives/cohabitators, domestic violence, probate objections and estate management.
Adv. Samon pioneered a unique method for handling the divorce crisis: D-MVP (Divorce Most Valuable Process). It is based on 3 fundamental principles:
A.Divorce is a crisis that must be managed wisely;
B. Individuals reach divorce agreements in various steps and manners;
C.For handling to be effective, it is important to also handle the emotional side of the divorce and not just the legal one.
This method relies on a thorough and comprehensive five-step process in which a crisis management strategy is devised, tailored to the personality and purposes of the client, in cooperation with professionals from the psychological-emotional fields. In step one, the firm provides the client with 9 one-on-one sessions with a psychological-emotional professional free of charge. The caregiver is picked specifically for the client’s needs and provides parental training, which is essential to allow the family to grow from out of the crisis. In step two, the caregiver maps the client’s situation, emotional condition and needs.
In step three, the optimal strategy for the divorce proceeding is derived from the emotional analysis: “Personality-based Strategy” that includes the client’s needs and emotional condition, together with an in-depth understanding of the other party. This process is done by agreement and in coordination with the client. In step four, the tactic to be implemented outside of court is formed and managed – including contact outside of court with the other party’s representation and with the other party themselves to move the process forward. In step five, the court proceeding is formed and managed to provide the client with comprehensive solutions. Most cases culminate in an agreement. The entire proceeding is focused on achieving optimal effectiveness for the client while preserving the ability to maintain the family even when family dynamics have crumbled, with a desire to bring the process to an end in such manner that would allow for growth and progress toward a good and healthy life.
