I bring more than 20 years of experience in mediation and litigation in New York courts to help people reduce costs and resolve conflicts with dignity.
People going through a divorce, separation or another legal process are often surprised by the cost of the process, both financially and emotionally. They want a fair and cost-effective result that addresses their concerns and gives them closure.
Every case is different. I and members of my law firm team use our initial meeting to listen and understand your specific concerns. Once we have the facts, we can work toward the process that will work best for your situation. Our goal in any dispute is to help resolve it with dignity, whether that is through mediation, collaborative law or, if necessary, litigation.
My law firm's practice focuses on matrimonial and family law litigation, divorce, prenuptial agreements and business mediation and collaborative divorce with an ancillary general practice, which includes residential real estate and adoption work.
I am fluent in Russian and frequently address legal needs of the Russian Community in New York.
I am an Advanced Mediator and Founding Member of the Association of Professional Family Mediators and a member and former president of the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York.
I am also an Advanced Practitioner member of Association for Conflict Resolution, member of the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals, of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee and of the Small Law Firms’ Committee at the New York City Bar Association. Ms. Roytberg is admitted to the Bars of the States of New York and New Jersey and to the Supreme Court of the United States.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Roytberg on numerous occasions. She is a top flight attorney and extremely knowledgeable in the family law/matrimonial arena. Ms. Roytberg is wonderful at attempting to find a solution and work through the mediation process rather than force her clients into the lengthy and expensive matrimonial litigation. But when mediation either fails or is not an option, Ms. Roytberg is a forceful and effective advocate for her client. It is without any hestiancy that i endorse Alla Roytberg and any client that retains her services will be represented by one of the best lawyers.
