As your DWI attorney, I work hard to prevent a driver's license suspension and any other penalties you face.

Contact the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski in San Antonio, Texas, today for criminal defense representation you can count on.
Since opening the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski in 2004, I have been using my experience and knowledge of prosecutor's strategies to represent people who need to keep their driver's license and their record clear.
An effective defense starts immediately.
Waiting until the prosecutor makes the first move is never a good idea when it comes to DWI defense. Contact me right away after being charged with driving while intoxicated. I will begin working for you immediately to challenge the charges against you, looking for every possible way to help you keep your license, and avoid jail times and fines. Pleas to any intoxication offense in Texas result in an automatic conviction. I try cases; I don't just plea bargain them. I can help you defend your DUI case.
Under Texas law, you have only 15 calendar days to schedule a hearing with the DPS to appeal your automatic license suspension. Once you hire me, I will handle everything for you. I will attend all administrative hearings and court appearances on your behalf when possible to minimize the interruptions in your life. I'll fight to protect you. My record speaks for itself.
If I am unable to have the charges against you dismissed or reduced and your license is suspended, you have other options. I can help you obtain an occupational driver's license—a restricted license that allows you to drive to and from work during the time your driver's license is suspended. This license will allow you to keep your job and maintain your livelihood during this difficult time.
Penalties for a conviction for DWI in Texas are getting harsher.
Misdemeanor first offense up to:
6 months, $2000 fine, 100 hours community service, 1 year driver's license suspension, DWI class, and other penalties, including $3000 for DPS surcharges.
Misdemeanor second offense up to:
1 year in jail, $4000 fine, 200 hours community service, 2 years driver's license suspension, DWI class, and other penalties, including $4500 for DPS surcharges.
A third DWI conviction is a state felony offense and carries significantly higher penalties, including time in prison. DPS surcharges can reach $6000 or more.
