Handling the Criminal Matter of Casino Markers

Getting credit at a casino is not particularly difficult or unusual, but when you are delinquent in repayment, you may be surprised to discover that you are actually facing a criminal offense. Being late in repaying a casino is unlike almost any other debt. It's not like being late on a credit card payment. It's more like trying to pass a bad check.

At the law office of Edward F. Gonciarz Attorney & Counselor at Law, I provide reliable criminal defense representation based on more than 20 years of legal experience. I will work to find the right solution for your case.

Understanding Nevada Casino Marker Laws

From a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands, when casinos extend lines of credit but don't receive repayment they can — and will — press criminal charges. These are not like other delinquent debt civil actions. This is an accusation of felony fraud, and it carries with it serious and lasting consequences.

You simply cannot afford to do nothing in defending yourself. From the moment you are notified that you have an outstanding debt with a casino, you need to take action to protect yourself from criminal prosecution and felony charges.

Do Not Wait to Get a Lawyer Involved

It is possible in many of these cases to avoid serious criminal penalty and the lasting damage of a felony conviction. The most important issue to the casinos and prosecutors is usually finding a way to make sure the gambling debt is repaid.

As your criminal defense lawyer, I work to fully examine your case, understand what sort of repayment options you can handle and negotiate with prosecutors to avoid serious or lasting penalties.

When you have a bad casino marker or outstanding debt with a casino, you need to understand the law and your rights. Many of my clients have never been involved with a criminal matter before, and I work to keep you informed and prepared so that together we can resolve your case before it gets out of hand.
