Gaming Law Lawyers In Newington Virginia

Newington is a census-designated place (CDP) in affluent, suburban Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. The population was 19,784 at the 2000 census. While the ZIP code for Newington is 22122, this is only for delivery points within the post office itself. Homes and businesses in the CDP have Springfield or Lorton street addresses. The area is poised for a great challenge as the U.S. Army in 2006 announced controversial plans to relocate 16,000 personnel positions to the Fort Belvoir Proving Ground in the new few years as part of the Base Realignment and Closure program, despite already gridlocked traffic and inadequate public transportation services in the neighborhood.

What is gaming law?

Lawyers who practice gaming law handle cases involving casinos, racetracks, state lottery revenue distribution, and more. Because gaming activity is heavily regulated under federal and state laws, gaming law attorneys may represent clients before government commissions and regulatory agencies.
