In 2012, Abe left the Manhattan D.A.'s office to enter private practice as a criminal defense attorney and to run for Brooklyn District Attorney. Abe campaigned for over a year championing issues such as reforming the NYPD's "Stop and Frisk" policy, and decriminalizing marijuana but he decided to step aside to join forces with Ken Thompson who beat 23 year incumbent Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes. Abe Joined Ken Thompson's transition team in 2013, and accepted a job as Deputy Bureau Chief of the Major Narcotics Investigative Bureau in the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office in 2014.
