Bankruptcy can sometimes help to discharge gambling debts. However, casinos and credit card companies often challenge the discharge of gambling debts by claiming fraud against the debtor. These fraud claims are decided on a case by case basis and can be tricky. You have to know the right questions to ask, the right documents to request and be familiar with the sometimes conflicting legal cases. At the Fuller Law Firm, we know how to handle these cases.
Most recently, we stepped in as attorney for a client with large gambling debts who had tried to use the services of a high-volume, cut-rate bankruptcy practice. His prior firm failed to properly defend the casino’s fraud claim and default was entered against the client. We stepped in, got the default cleared and began to challenge the claim through discovery. Ultimately, this claim settled for less than 2% of the total gambling debts. While the facts of each case are different and results may vary, the knowledge base necessary to defend these cases is the same from case to case.
