Alla Roytberg has over 30 years of experience in helping families navigate complex financial and emotional family, marital and divorce issues in and out of court.  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. Alla Roytberg and her firm offers a variety of process options and unique solutions to address specific issues faced by each family.  Whether you are a high net worth client with complex financial holdings who is concerned with disclosure and confidentiality as you enters into a Prenuptial Agreement or are facing a divorce, an international or cross-cultural family that needs to create a tailor-made parenting schedule across countries and continents, or a family with a house, a small business and a couple of pension plans, that is looking for a speedy and cost-effective resolution, Alla Roytberg and her team will use the initial meeting to listen and understand your specific concerns. Once they have the facts, Roytberg Traum 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, representation as settlement/negotiation counsel in a litigated process.
