Marietta criminal defense attorneys Maddox Kilgore and Carlos Rodriguez grew up in the Marietta/Smyrna community. And we are proud to base our law firm in Marietta, the better to represent members of that community when they need it most.

Maddox Kilgore is an experienced attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience under his belt. His resume includes stints as a law clerk on the Georgia Supreme Court, an Assistant Attorney General, and an Assistant District Attorney in the Cobb County Judicial System. These days he dedicates the skills he honed during those years to defending juveniles and adults at every stage of the criminal justice system.

Kilgore & Rodriguez specialize in many areas of criminal defense, including:

DUI AND DRUG DEFENSE: In such cases, our first approach is to attempt to have the evidence against you suppressed or excluded. We look to determine whether police may have violated your constitutional rights during the search of your property or seizure of contraband. When there is no basis for suppression, we pursue other ways to challenge the charges against you.

SEXUAL OFFENSES, CHILD MOLESTATION AND PORNOGRAPHY: These are among the most serious charges a person can face. An arrest for child molestation, child pornography, or some other sexual offense can ruin your marriage and reputation, end your career, and destroy your life. What's more, Cobb County employs special investigators and prosecutors whose only job is to prosecute sex crimes against women and children. You need skilled attorneys with the expertise and experience to help you beat these charges—attorneys who will fight for your rights with tenacity and the utmost discretion.

JUVENILE DEFENSE: The laws governing children under the age of 17 are very different from those that govern adult offenders. Maddox Kilgore is a veteran Juvenile Court litigator who has successfully defended juveniles charged with delinquent acts including rape, kidnapping, and more. We believe that juveniles sometimes make bad decisions, and that those choices don't necessarily have to haunt your child for the rest of his or her life.

OTHER OFFENSES: Kilgore & Rodriguez are also experienced at defending cases involving domestic violence, theft and shoplifting, traffic and driver's license offenses, and mental health defenses. In addition, we have a proven track record of winning cases on appeal. When your freedom is at stake, call the seasoned Marietta criminal defense attorneys at Kilgore & Rodriguez.
