When you come to the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski for help, 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. I use this knowledge to look for weaknesses in the evidence which will be presented by the prosecutor in court.
For the majority of my more than 15 years in practice, I have dedicated my focus to the defense of people who have been accused of crimes, while still providing 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.
Many people who face prosecution for criminal charges are all too eager to accept a plea bargain, because they are anxious to avoid time in jail or prison and they think that it is all but certain that they will be convicted. The fact is that it is almost always possible to achieve a better outcome by taking action to fight criminal charges, and in many cases it is possible to win.
