Get to Know the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski

Successful History of Case Results in San Antonio

When you come to the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski for help after an arrest on criminal charges, you give yourself the advantage of having a former prosecutor on your side. My experience as a prosecutor with the Bexar County District Attorney's Office provides me with a unique insight into the strategies that law enforcement use to investigate and build a case against a person, and it helps me look for weaknesses in the evidence which will be presented by the prosecutor in court.

For the majority of my more than 10 years in practice, I have dedicated my focus to the defense of people who have been accused of crimes, though I still provide service as a special prosecutor for the District Attorney's Offices of Medina, Uvalde, Real, and Guadalupe Counties. Furthermore, I was appointed by all of the district court judges from Bexar County to serve as a magistrate judge.

I bring a wealth of experience and legal knowledge to the table, with a track record of hundreds of cases tried before judges and juries in both state and federal courts, including filing appeals of cases involving the death penalty. You can have confidence in your choice of me as your San Antonio criminal defense lawyer. Many of the cases I have handled have received widespread attention in the news media, from the dismissal of indictments against my clients who were involved in the Southwest Airlines case, to representing clients in a multi-million-dollar class action lawsuit over illegal strip searches in Bexar County.

Recognized as a Leading San Antonio Criminal Lawyer

My peers in the legal profession have honored me by voting me onto the list of Texas Super Lawyers® Rising Stars for 6 years running from 2009 to 2014. Inclusion in this list is a considerable distinction, given that no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in the state are named Rising Stars℠. I also have earned a 10.0 Superb Avvo Rating and was recognized as being among the Best Lawyers in San Antonio by Seen in Scene in SA Monthly.

Additionally, I am a contributing editor for San Antonio's business journal, NSIDE, and have written many published articles, including "The $25,000 Martini," a discussion of the wide-ranging economic effects that an arrest for driving while intoxicated can have on a person's professional life and career.
