Abe Mashni is a criminal defense attorney practicing in Lexington, Kentucky.   

After graduating the University of Kentucky, magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science, Abe earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Kentucky College of Law.  While in law school, Abe participated on the Trial Advocacy Board and was granted a Limited Practice License from the Kentucky Supreme Court.  Abe utilized the limited license to its full extent by working at the Fayette County Commonwealth's Attorney office.  During this time, he prosecuted a felony trial and argued several evidentiary hearings on behalf of the Commonwealth – all while still in law school!  As a result of this experience, Abe has intimate knowledge of how prosecutors and law enforcement officers will develop and prosecute your criminal case.

Abe began his legal career as a Staff Attorney for the Fayette Circuit Court Judge Kimberly Bunnell.  In this capacity, he gained invaluable insight of the inner workings of a complicated court system.  After a great year working for Judge Bunnell, Abe became the newest attorney of Baldani, Rowland & Richardson in 2014.

Since joining Baldani, Rowland & Richardson, Abe has successfully represented clients in courts across central Kentucky on a daily basis.  His jury trial experience includes: federal criminal defense, state felony criminal defense, state misdemeanor criminal defense, and personal injury.  He has also handled several family law bench trials including: divorce, custody, child support, and Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. 

Abe's membership's include the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (KACDL), Kentucky Justice Association (KJA), Kentucky Bar Association, and the United States District Court Eastern District of Kentucky.

Abe takes great pride in knowing that his clients put their trust in him to get results.  He gives every client his cell phone number because emergencies don't only happen between 8:30am-5:00pm.  By giving each case individualized attention and focusing on the details, Abe can be proactive and aggressive in fighting for his client's rights.

Abe is an active volunteer (“Big”) and serves on the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass.  When not volunteering his time or practicing law, Abe enjoys spending time with his wife and bird dog.  He also is an avid golfer, hunter, and University of Kentucky sports fan.
