Practice areas

Making a positive difference in the lives of my clients is a core value for me. I have the experience to give people the advice they need to make thoughtful decisions for their future.

Education and Professional History

I graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, in 1976, and I was admitted to the Alaska Bar in 1977. I started my legal career as a commercial and business lawyer. For the next fourteen years, I worked with business clients to find practical solutions to the complex problems they often faced in running their companies. While I learned a great deal about commercial and business law, I found I did not have a passion for what I was doing.

In early 1991, an opportunity came along, which changed my life. A good friend and family lawyer decided to leave Alaska. She called and asked if she could refer her divorce clients to me when she left. I said, “Of course.” Within a matter of months, I was helping divorce clients find practical solutions for the problems they faced in their divorces. Twenty-five years and many clients later, I still love what I do.

Dedicated to Divorce, Child Custody, and Family Law

The Alaska Bar Association does not certify family lawyers as specialists. Therefore, I cannot ethically hold myself out as a family law specialist. I can, however state that my practice emphasizes family law cases.


I have worked with clients in Anchorage, on the Kenai, in the Mat-Su Valley, and Fairbanks. I have represented clients from many walks of life – from subsistence fishermen to successful business owners.  

Because I was a commercial and business lawyer for the first fourteen years of practicing law, I can provide effective and aggressive representation for professionals, entrepreneurs, and corporate executives, and work with them to protect their personal and business legal interests.


I am a member of the Alaska Bar Association, the California Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

Outstanding Advocate
Peggy is not only well versed in Alaska divorce law, she has a clear understanding of equitable distribution and asset division. She is creative, ethical and honest. All of my stereotypes regarding lawyers were shattered by Peggy. There is nothing she doesn’t catch and she fights tirelessly for her clients. Without her I would have crumbled during my divorce. She was my voice when I could barely breath. Peggy was my wheelchair, next my crutches, then my cane, and finally even my legs until I could walk again. If you are facing a divorce look she is your gal!!

I highly recommend Alaska divorce lawyer Peggy Roston
A colleague of mine recommended Peggy Peggy for help with my divorce in Anchorage, Alaska. She helped me work through my divorce, property division, child custody and child support after my wife and I separated. Peggy knows Alaska divorce and family law incredibly well and she helped answer any question that I had throughout the process. Peggy fought hard for my interests and I am satisfied with the results.
