A news item written prior to production stated that Mix and the co-star, director and cameraman from his previous film Treat 'Em Rough (Jane Novak, Lynn Reynolds and J. Dev. Jennings, respectively) were to work on The Coming of the Law. Although one review credits Novak, Reynolds and Jennings with working on the picture, all other sources credit Brownie Vernon as co-star, Arthur Rosson as director and Le Roy Granville as cameraman. Some sources credit only Dennison Clift as scenarist.
