From 1984 to 1986, Mr. Hoskins served as assistant county attorney for Whitley County, Kentucky. In 1987, he found the area of the law that most interested him – criminal defense. Since then, he has successfully defended hundreds of persons in the state and federal courts of Kentucky. He has won acquittals for everything from DUI to murder. Mr. Hoskins maintains membership and active involvement in professional associations. He is a life member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. In 2012, he served as president of the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Over the years, Mr. Hoskins has been involved in numerous major cases. He avoided the death penalty sought by the Commonwealth against the man convicted of leading a plot to assassinate the sheriff of Pulaski County, a case which has been featured on the television programs “City Confidential” and “Sins and Secrets.” Mr. Hoskins has also served as an instructor and leader of several continuing education programs sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the federal court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. He has represented judges, police officers, and prosecutors who have found themselves accused of crimes.
Abe Mashni is a criminal defense attorney practicing in Lexington, Kentucky. After graduating the University of Kentucky, magna cum laude with a Bachelor 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 an associate attorney at Baldani, Rowland & Richardson in 2014.
In 2018, the firm changed its name to Baldani Law Group and Abe was made partner. While in private practice, Abe has successfully represented clients in over 20 counties across central Kentucky. 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 memberships include the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (KACDL) where he also serves on the board of directors, Kentucky Bar Association, and the United States District Court Eastern District of Kentucky.In 2019, Abe was awarded the Clarence Darrow Prodigy Award by the Kentucky Associate of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
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 a former “Big” brother and currently 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, Ann, and bird dog, Cooper. He also is an avid golfer, hunter, and University of Kentucky sports fan.
