We are Maddox Kilgore and Carlos Rodriguez, a pair of experienced Marietta criminal defense lawyers. We grew up in the Marietta/Smyrna area, and we are proud to base our practice in Marietta.

Maddox Kilgore has more than 20 years of legal experience.

He uses that knowledge and expertise to defend juveniles and adults at every stage of the criminal justice system.

We specialize in many areas of criminal defense, including:

DUI AND DRUG DEFENSE: The first thing we do in these cases is to try to get the evidence against you suppressed or excluded. We 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: An arrest on charges of child molestation, child pornography, or other sexual offenses can destroy your life. It can ruin your marriage and reputation and cost you your job. And Cobb County employs special investigators and prosecutors to prosecute sex crimes against women and children. We are skilled Marietta criminal defense lawyers with a record of defending sexual offense cases with tenacity and discretion.

JUVENILE DEFENSE: The laws that govern children under the age of 17 are very different from those for adult offenders. Maddox Kilgore is a veteran Juvenile Court attorney who has successfully defended minors charged with delinquent acts including rape, kidnapping, and more. At Kilgore & Rodriguez, we understand that sometimes, good kids can exercise poor judgment. Our job is to ensure that these bad decisions don't ruin your child's future. In many cases, we are able to have a juvenile defendant's case sealed, so that those mistakes don't come back to haunt him or her in the future, and he or she can pursue a successful life.

OTHER OFFENSES: Kilgore & Rodriguez also have experience and expertise in 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 you've been arrested on a serious criminal charge, the Marietta criminal defense lawyers at Kilgore & Rodriguez stand ready to defend your case and keep you out of jail. If you need legal representation, call us immediately.
