By Bob Nersesian


Bob Nersesian of Las Vegas is the nation's premier attorney when it comes to legal actions against casinos for abuse of patrons.  Bob has successfully represented victims of casino abuse in legal forums ranging from Gaming Control Board administrative hearings all the way to the Nevada Supreme Court. Nersesian is also the author of the book, Beat The Player – Casinos, Cops, and the Game Inside the Game.
