Areas of Law Description
Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski represents clients in the following areas of practice:
- Federal Criminal Defense
At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, we understand that an effective defense of a federal criminal charge requires a different approach than for a state charge. We prepare intelligent, creative defenses for people charged with federal crimes, including federal drug charges, white collar crimes, bank fraud, and other federal criminal charges.
- State Offenses
We know how serious the penalties can be for people convicted of a felony or misdemeanor. Since 2004, we have been using my experience to defend the rights of people charged with state criminal offenses. Our lawyers never forget how important it is to take the extra step, try the extra legal challenge, and fight the extra fight to reduce or eliminate the charge against you.
If you have been convicted by a jury of a crime in a federal or state court, you are constitutionally guaranteed the right to appeal, and the appellate court is required to hear your case. Given the importance of your appeal, you do not want to leave your fate in the hands of an inexperienced, over-worked lawyer.
- Drug Offenses
A federal or state drug charge in Texas can result in a very serious penalty if you are convicted. Over the past several years, the Texas legislature has taken a harsher view of drug offenses, particularly in light of an increased use of meth, marijuana, cocaine, and heroine in the state.
- DWI/DUI Defense
At the criminal defense office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, we do more than simply provide legal defense for your DWI charges. As your DWI attorney, we work hard to prevent a driver's license suspension and any other penalties you face. As a former prosecutor in San Antonio, firm founder, Attorney Kerrisa knows how local prosecutors will approach your DWI/DUI charges.
- White Collar Crimes
We offer effective defense for white collar crimes such as: Bank fraud; Mail fraud; Website fraud/internet crimes; Check theft, forgery; Identity theft; and Embezzlement. Attorney Kerrisa will use her experience as a former prosecutor to help you get the best possible outcome for your charges.
- Bank Fraud
Bank fraud and other crimes involving deception are serious charges that can result in very harsh penalties ó if not handled effectively. Our criminal defense attorney, Kerrisa Chelkowski has extensive experience in representing clients in state and federal cases arising from bank fraud allegations.
- Computer Crimes & Internet Fraud
As an experienced defense lawyer, we know the intense level of anxiety our clients are enduring. We carefully collect the evidence and determine the most effective defense strategy to move forward with. We defend clients facing investigations or state or federal charges involving child pornography, solicitation of minors over the Internet, and other Internet sex crimes.
- Sex Crimes
Our firm provides aggressive, respectful, and experienced criminal defense representation to clients facing investigations or criminal charges for sex crimes, including: Rape and date rape; Statutory rape/sex with a minor; Child molestation; Possession or distribution of child pornography; Lewd and lascivious conduct; Sexual assault/sexual battery; Internet solicitation of a minor; and Other sex crimes.
- Aggravated Sex Crimes
At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski, we know what it takes to provide diligent representation in these complex cases. As a former prosecutor, we know how much emphasis the state places on getting a conviction in these cases. However, we also know how these cases are prepared. This gives us insight on how to prepare an effective defense in serious sex crime cases.
- Expunction of Records
At the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski in San Antonio, Texas, I help people expunge past criminal convictions from their record. Not everyone qualifies for an expungement. Even so, you may qualify for a motion for nondisclosure, more commonly known as sealing your record.

We provide experienced representation for people charged with violent felony and misdemeanor crimes such as: Murder, homicide; Assault; Domestic violence, spouse abuse; Rape, aggravated sexual assault; Vehicular manslaughter, intoxicated homicide; Bar fight offenses; Indecency with a child; and Violations of the Dram Shop Act.
- Probation Revocations
If you or a family member is on probation, you are never more than one mistake away from a motion to revoke probation (MTR). Violations do not need to be major. A simple act of neglecting a parking ticket can mean going to jail to complete your sentence. Our firm will fight to prevent your probation from being revoked. We will keep your best interests my top priority.
- Class Action Lawsuits
Our firm represents those individuals whose rights have been violated, due to illegal activities or criminal offenses. In an effort to put a stop to illegal strip searching practices that took place in jails throughout Bexar County, attorney Kerrisa Chelkowski was able to help victims receive compensation from a $5.5 million class action lawsuit settlement out of court.
