Nikola Kostich

We were saddened to learn that former SBAA President Nikola Kostich passed away recently.  Nikola was not only a leading trial lawyer, but also an ardent defender of Serbian causes who received the SBAA’s Czar Dusan award for lifetime achievement. You can read more here.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Nikola’s family.

Vecnaja Pamjat.
