San Antonio Criminal Defense Attorney
Let a Former San Antonio Prosecutor Fight for Your Rights
Being arrested and charged with a crime may be one of the most stressful, upsetting and frustrating experiences of your life. Faced with such an unfortunate situation, you may feel panicked and uncertain about what the future holds. The actions you take right now have the potential to determine the course of the coming years: On one hand, you could end up being fined, imprisoned and forced to live your life with a criminal record; on the other hand, you could be exonerated or have the charges dismissed, allowing you to walk out of the courthouse with a clean slate.
If you are determined to clear your name and defend your rights and your freedom, come to my firm, the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski for help from a former prosecutor. After serving as a prosecutor with the Bexar County District Attorney's Office, I turned my focus to the defense of people who have been accused and are looking for a second chance and a way to find their way out of the criminal justice system. I understand what a devastating impact an arrest can have on your life, and it is my goal to help you mitigate the damage, protect your reputation, and assist you in getting your life back on track.
You are legally innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and I want to ensure that you receive fair treatment under law and protect your rights.
