Divorce & Family Law


Most divorces in New York are granted on the grounds of irretrievable breakdown of the marital relationship, but the court cannot finalize the case until all financial issues are resolved. Depending on the specific case, these issues may include the division of marital assets and debts (also known as “equitable distribution”) and spousal support (also known as “maintenance” or “alimony”) where it is requested. Where minor children are involved, separating spouses must also consider how they will support and raise their children.

To minimize unnecessary conflict, agreements are encouraged when possible.

Criminal Law


Mr. Roitshtein represents clients in all forms of criminal matters, including misdemeanor, felony, and domestic violence cases.

Criminal charges can feel overwhelming and can present you or your loved one with significant consequences. They can affect one’s employment and immigration status, among other things. Most cases can be negotiated and settled, others call for aggressive litigation. No two cases are alike and Mr. Roitshtein counsels clients on all of their options.

Mr. Roitshtein’s practice focuses on divorce, family, and criminal litigation matters. He is admitted to practice in the courts of New York.

I believe that listening to the client is paramount – it helps me understand the client’s goals, identify what to fight for, and helps me place the court’s attention squarely where it needs to be during trial.

Before opening my practice I handled a wide array of divorce, family, and criminal matters as an associate attorney at Richardson Legal PLLC, a boutique New York City matrimonial practice led by Morghan Leia Richardson, Esq. Morghan and I have been working together for more than a decade and I continue to handle selected cases with her as Of Counsel to her firm.

Upon graduating from law school I served as law clerk to the Honorable Paul M. DePascale, J.S.C., Judge of the Criminal Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey in Hudson County, where I assisted the Court in issuing decisions in a wide range of intense criminal matters.

I am a graduate of Georgetown University and the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. During law school, I won the award for academic excellence in criminal law. When not litigating, I play in recreational soccer leagues throughout New York City.
