The firm has represented operators, manufacturers, and charities in the electronic gaming industry since 1998. Currently there is an intense legal and political battle raging over charity bingo. The governor established the statewide Task Force to Stop Illegal Gambling to uniformly enforce laws against illegal gambling in all 67 Alabama counties. The Task Force has consistently targeted slot machines, which it believes are illegal.
Aggressive Forfeiture Defense
Many clients come to the firm for forfeiture defense. The task force, along with the support of a lead prosecutor and state law enforcement officials, has begun raiding charity bingo halls across Alabama. Armed with a search warrant, they seize the electronic slot machines, as well as money earned by the charity.
The attorneys at the firm have had success in pursuing legal remedies against slot machine forfeiture or condemnation, including getting the money back. They have deep experience in gaming law, as well as complex litigation. Their goal in this type of case is to prove to the court that the machines were illegally seized by the government.
The lawyers at the firm also consult with nonprofit organizations and bingo hall operators who wish to set up business in an Alabama county, as well as the vendors who own the slot machines. They help cities and counties draft gaming law allowing charitable bingo.
