A NUMBER OF SOUTH FLORIDA’S ATTORNEYS formed the Russian American Bar Association of Florida and elected its first Board of Directors, including, from the left, Treasurer Galina Urman, President Anya Freeman, Director of Public Relations Luda Kogan, Vice President Yana Manotas, and Secretary Irina Rostova. The RABA was formed to provide legal services; foster community outreach; and provide a forum for the exchange of information relating to legal, social, economic, and political matters affecting the Russian-speaking community. The RABA will host monthly meetings with frequent guest speakers at locations across Miami-Dade and Broward counties. New members throughout Florida are welcome to join and may email [email protected] for more information. On April 7, the RABA heard from guest speakers Judge John O’Sullivan and Judge Stanford Blake.
