Richard K. Payne
I’m Richard K. Payne and I am very excited to be part of the Denali Law Group and to provide exceptional legal representation to Alaskans. I have been practicing law in Alaska for over eleven years, both as a civil litigation attorney and, most recently, as a Palmer Assistant District Attorney. I have prosecuted every conceivable type of criminal matter from multiple murders, including a double homicide, felony and misdemeanor assaults, thefts, DUIs and drug cases. As a Prosecutor, I was very fortunate to make lasting friendships and to become familiar with the District Attorney’s office personalities, policies and procedures as well as the Palmer Court System. What this means to you is, I know who I am dealing with, and I know what I am doing. My accountability, relationships and intimate knowledge of Alaskan Law are your greatest assets.
Jon Marc Petersen
I’m Jon Marc Petersen, and as a former District Attorney in Palmer with a stellar track record in handling everything from DUI’s to Homicide cases, I look forward to helping you receive the justice you deserve. Because of my passion as an attorney and fascination for law, I have long had a dream to start my own practice and after several years in the District Attorney’s office I felt that the timing was right to begin private practice here in the Valley. I met Richard in the District Attorney’s office and in hindsight cannot imagine creating this firm with anyone else. With my background in criminal defense, law enforcement, prosecution, insurance defense and personal injury, we can provide full service legal advice and representation to our clients. With our experience in Palmer and having both been involved with numerous jury trials in the Palmer Courts, we can bring that full range of experience to bear for our clients. My passion for law and tireless work ethic are a formidable arsenal protecting your rights. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you.

I am Roy Roistacher and have been an active attorney since 1986. I am licensed to practice law in both Alaska and Washington State where I practiced until moving to Wasilla in 2003. While in Washington, I maintained a solo practice engaged almost exclusively in criminal defense. I was honored to serve as a Judge Pro Tem in both the King County Courts and Seattle Municipal Court.
Being a small town lawyer engaged in a diversified practice has been an amazing and rewarding experience. Service to my community is one of my core values. I am also proud to serve as a Fire Lieutenant in the Central Mat-Su Fire Department and when time permitted as a legal advisor to the Mat-Su Youth Court.
