Who are the Gambling Lawyers?



This is a great article from the Herald on all the lawyers and law firms profiting from the gaming industry.

Genting has tapped Bilzin's Al Dotson and Vicki Garcia-Toledo to handle land use and zoning issues, Alan Koslow is mentioned of course, but who knew this guy is a playa too:
In one of the fastest-growing areas of gaming, 1,000 Internet cafes are in operation in strip malls throughout the state, operating slot-machine-like games under a loophole in the state’s sweepstakes law. A variety of Florida’s lawyers represent those businesses, including Alan Kluger, a partner in Miami’s Kluger Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine.

“The gaming laws are going through a complete top-to-bottom examination in order to provide comprehensive legislation,” Kluger said. “The legislators will have to be even-handed and not fall prey to economic pressure from groups pressing only their self-interest.” 
Internet cafes running faux slot machine games in strip malls --  America, I have a dream!

(Ideally you can have one right next to an advance payday loan store, add a liquor store and a gun shop, and we're talking the inexorable march of progress.)
