San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer part of successful effort to stop illegal practices at Bexar County Jail
San Antonio, Texas, Criminal Defense Lawyer
After being charged with a federal or state crime in Texas, you need a criminal defense attorney who can deliver an aggressive and effective defense to ensure the best possible outcome for your case. You don't need empty promises. I have the experience to ensure the best possible results.
My objective is always to protect your future.
At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, in San Antonio, Texas, I focus on criminal defense. Before opening the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, I worked for two years as a prosecutor and gained valuable experience that I now use to represent you. Being a prosecutor, I know what the state government can and can’t do; it keeps me a step ahead of your case. As a prosecutor, I tried numerous cases and handled appeals through argument to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. I know how important it is to move quickly, aggressively, and decisively to protect your rights and challenge the prosecution's case, and I know how important it is to keep you fully informed of your case. I will put you at ease and explain every step in your defense. My experience helps you from investigation through post-conviction.
I offer effective, skillful criminal defense for charges such as:
- Federal offenses: I have an in-depth understanding of federal criminal law and federal court requirements, including criminal defense and appeals for charges such as fraud and white collar crimes, federal internet crime, and drug offenses. I have argued successfully in front of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and have had many cases against my clients dismissed.
- State crimes and DWI defense: After being charged with a criminal offense or DWI, it isn't always about guilt or innocence. It is often about whether the prosecution has a valid case for conviction. I offer a criminal defense that is focused on helping you stay out of jail and avoid the serious penalties that come with a conviction. It's your future, and I fight to protect it. In addition, I can use my experience to help you maintain your probation or parole, if it is being challenged because of a violation.
- Appeals: If you have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor crime at the state or federal level, it is your right to appeal. I also offer aggressive, knowledgeable representation that can help you clear your record of a conviction.
An effective defense starts immediately.
If you or a family member has been charged with a state or federal crime, of if you are considering appealing a conviction, my record speaks for itself. Contact me to schedule a consultation. At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, I stay focused on getting an outcome that is best for you. My focus is on quality not quantity. I don’t maintain a high volume practice, so that I may give each client the individual attention he or she deserves.
