Baldani Law Group congratulates Abe Mashni on his appointment to the United States, Eastern District of Kentucky Criminal Justice Act (CJA) Panel. Abe joins fellow BLG attorneys, Russ Baldani and Brandi Lewis on the panel.
The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees an accused the right to representation by counsel in serious criminal prosecutions. Enacted in 1964, the CJA establishes a comprehensive system for appointing and compensating legal representation for accused persons who are financially unable to retain counsel in federal criminal proceedings.
The Eastern District of Kentucky made an announcement that they were expanding their CJA Panel of attorneys. The selection and application process included attorney/peer nominations and submitted written materials highlighting each candidates experience and qualifications. Ultimately, Abe was one of the new members selected by the United States District Court Judges and Magistrates from the Eastern District of Kentucky to join the panel.
