Ljubisa “LJ” Kostic

For the better part of a decade, Ljubisa "LJ" Kostic represented big businesses, private and government institutions, and their insurance companies. But he never forgot to wear his grandfather’s watch, the one his grandfather (also named Ljubisa Kostic) was wearing the day he was killed by a bus because the bus driver was drunk. Now, Mr. Kostic represents ordinary people facing the extraordinary challenges that, unfortunately, so often follow when someone else’s carelessness, broken promise or intentional conduct results in injury or loss. Mr. Kostic has extensive experience in cases involving wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, premises liability, dangerous conditions on public property, defective products, fraud, wrongful termination and employment discrimination, civil rights violations, sexual assault, assault and battery, disability discrimination and ADA violations, partnership disputes, and many others. He has successfully handled every aspect of litigation from inception to jury trial. He has also handled numerous appeals, including a published decision, O’Toole v. San Diego Community College District (2005) 140 Cal.App.4th 488. Mr. Kostic is licensed to practice law in California and Nevada, and is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in both states, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal, the Southern and Central Districts of California and the District of Nevada.


Mr. Kostic was born in Belgrade, Serbia (then Yugoslavia). He is a graduate of the University of Virginia, where he received degrees in economics and psychology. Mr. Kostic received his law degree from California Western School of Law, where he was one of the top 10 students in his class, and received numerous awards. Mr. Kostic began his career with the Las Vegas law firm of Lionel, Sawyer & Collins, one of Las Vegas’ oldest, largest and most prestigious corporate firms. Next, Mr. Kostic joined the well known San Diego based defense firm of Stutz Artiano Shinoff & Holtz, where he was a partner until 2009. In 2007, Mr. Kostic was named one of the top ten young attorneys who have practiced for 5-7 years, as published in the annual Young Attorneys issue of the San Diego Daily Transcript, one of the most widely read business and legal journals in Southern California. Mr. Kostic is also an avid surfer, slightly less avid but enthusiastic snowboarder, animal lover, devoted husband and soon to be father to a baby boy.


Mr. Kostic is the principal of the Kostic Law Firm, and is of counsel to Estey & Bomberger.
