Las Vegas Casino Marker and Bad Check Defense Lawyers Fighting to Clear Up Your Financial and Legal Problems
Under Nevada law, if you write a check without sufficient funds in the bank to cover the check on the date it was written, you can be charged with Fraud. The same can occur if you write a check to cover casino markers and the check is returned for non-sufficient funds. This is a very specialized area of the law, and most attorneys don’t realize that there ARE defenses available in many of these cases. You need a strong, knowledgeable and resourceful attorney on your side to avoid a felony conviction and get out of trouble.
At the Law Offices of Michael I. Gowdey, Ltd., we help our clients resolve charges related to these cases, so they are not subject to arrest or conviction for casino markers or bad checks. Our focus is to make sure that you avoid the humiliation of arrest and conviction for such offenses.
When you need someone on your side, contact Michael Gowdey at 702-471-0321.
Bad Checks and Casino Markers Lawyer
Las Vegas casinos may well invite you to gamble in their establishment and actually offer to lend you money to do so. Those are called casino markers. The casinos are very loose with their money because they know that they have the Clark County District Attorney to be their enforcer and collect the debts. Nevada law empowers the District Attorney to represent the casinos and prosecute you for not repaying the markers. In an earlier time, the mafia had goons to break your leg if you didn’t pay. Now the casinos are more sophisticated, but their collection methods are every bit as painful. You need an experienced, expert lawyer to shield you from the repercussions of not repaying the markers. Whether it is asserting all defenses or negotiating charges away, Michael I. Gowdey is the attorney to call.
Often, a simple plan and promise to pay can be a good step toward resolving a serious conflict. And, clients who are able to stick to agreements are often able to have the case dismissed, leaving them untarnished by a criminal conviction.
