Dear Friends, Clients and Colleagues,

In September of 1996, I embarked on a new journey when I dared to leave my job as a litigation associate and rent a small room inside a law office in Forest Hills, located 2 blocks from my home. I have never looked back.

Over the last 2 decades, we have fine-tuned our menu of services to unite under one vision – to provide as many options as possible for people, families and businesses to navigate the legal world in a way that works best for them. 20 years later, the Law Firm and Mediation Practice of Alla Roytberg, P.C. is continuing to help people of all ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds, from clients of moderate means to high net worth families and business owners, solve their legal problems. We educate them about all available options, provide tailored solutions, and offer expert advice along the way. Our goal is to help each client achieve the best outcome possible.

I thank you for your support, your helpful suggestions, and your loyalty during the last 20 years, and look forward to helping you and your loved ones for years to come.

With warmest regards, Alla Roytberg

Our Law Firm in the News: January 19, 2016

“Mediation is the best option for property division, because the right mediator, who is experienced in financial matters is in a much better position to help the parties understand their finances, evaluate them in a fair way and also address tax consequences of division of assets. Courts are overburdened.

Judges don’t have the ability to give one case a lot of attention. Some judges are not financially savvy and rely on the parties’ lawyers to educate them. The result is often not well crafted, not thought out and sometimes even very unfair long term, if certain issues, such as tax benefits, capital gains and other matters are missed.” – Alla Roytberg – quoted inMyBankTracker.com and in a “Law and More” blog.
