The family emigrated to the U.S. from Bosnia, during a time when the country was facing a devastating civil war, where neither law nor order existed. The experience led Nives to view her practice of the law as a real privilege; one that is exceptionally gratifying for her. She is passionate about helping her clients feel vindicated and helping them get the justice they deserve.
Prior to joining Montlick in 2018, Nives attended John Marshall Law School, where she graduated in the top 10 in her class and received 4 CALI Awards of Excellence, a prestigious national award given to the highest-ranking student in each class.
Nives is fluent in Bosnian, Serbian, and Croatian. In her free time, she loves to hike, travel, and spend time with her friends and family. Nives currently lives in Atlanta, GA with her Maltese Shih Tzu mix Baya, that she adores.
