Abe MaAbe Mashnishni is a native of Lexington, Kentucky.  He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Kentucky with a B.A. in Political Science and earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Kentucky College of Law.  While at UK College of Law, he served as the Treasurer for the Trial Advocacy Board and was granted a limited practice license from the Kentucky Supreme Court and the Kentucky Bar Admissions.

While in law school, Abe worked at the Fayette County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office.  He was tasked with the responsibility of arguing multiple hearings on the Commonwealth’s behalf and even served as first-chair prosecuting a felony trial.  As a result of this experience, Abe has intimate knowledge of how prosecutors and law enforcement officers will develop and prosecute your criminal case.

Upon being sworn into the Kentucky Bar Association, Abe began his legal career as a Staff Attorney for the Fayette Circuit Court Judge Kimberly Bunnell.  In this capacity, Abe gained invaluable insight of the inner workings of the complicated court system.  After a great year working for Judge Bunnell, Abe became the newest member of Baldani, Rowland and Richardson.

Abe’s practice is diverse and focuses on criminal law, personal injury, auto accident cases, and family law issues such as divorce, child custody, child support, and cases involving the Department of Social Services.

Abe is an active volunteer with Big Brother Big Sister of the Bluegrass and serves on the alumni advisory board for Delta Tau Delta Fraternity.  When not volunteering his time or practicing law, Abe enjoys golfing, hunting, and attending UK sporting events.
