White Collar Crime
It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone that, according to a number of statistical studies in the United States and elsewhere, white-collar crimes are on the rise. This is due to a number of factors, most of them tied in one way or another to the expansion of technology. Because so much data is available on the internet, the range of crimes that can be committed online is increasing exponentially.
If you have been arrested for a white-collar crime, you already know that you are in legal jeopardy, at risk of heavy fines and lengthy imprisonment.

White Collar Crime Defined
White-collar crime is a crime committed in order to make financial gain through deceit. It is not a violent form of crime, though in certain cases, force and coercion may be used to perpetuate it or conceal it. White-collar crime seriously affects tremendous numbers of people annually, depriving them of their hard-earned wages, savings, and investments, and depleting businesses, corporations, government agencies, and public and private schools. At Blischak Law Firm, we are well aware of how easy it is to get sucked into white-collar crime, at times because someone you work with has already paved the way, and at other times because you take a small misstep that goes unnoticed, enticing you to commit a bigger indiscretion. Whatever the reason you have been arrested, we always assume that you are innocent until proven guilty and work diligently to defend your rights and your freedom.
Types Of White Collar Crime And Fraud
There are a great many varieties of white-collar crime, including:
Credit card fraud
Mortgage/real estate fraud
Some of these categories of white-collar crime, for instance, rico charges, overlap into various other types of criminal behavior.
Possible Defenses Against White Collar Crimes
Depending on the circumstances, your criminal defense attorney may base your defense on one of the following:
Duress, meaning the illegal act was committed under threat of serious harm or damage
Ignorance of the illegality of an act that was done at the behest of a superior
Impaired judgment by reason of intoxication, medication, or mental incapacity
Entrapment by authorities
Entrapment is the most common defense used in cases of white-collar crime.
