Maddox Kilgore is an experienced criminal attorney with more than 20 years of experience.

Maddox draws on his extensive knowledge of the Cobb County Judicial System to defend juveniles and adults charged with serious crimes in Smyrna.

At Kilgore & Rodriguez, we know how serous a DUI conviction can be. A conviction can result in serious penalties, including jail time, community service, fines, and the loss of your driver's license and even your job. Your insurance may be cancelled, or your premiums may rise dramatically. The Smyrna defense attorneys at Kilgore & Rodriguez have successfully defended many DUI cases, often resulting in reduced charges or complete dismissal of charges.


The first thing we do when defending your drug case is to seek to have the evidence against you suppressed or excluded. Evidence of marijuana or other drugs can be thrown out if it was seized in a way that may have violated your constitutional right against unlawful search and seizure. No evidence means no case.


If you are charged with child molestation, child pornography, or other sexual offenses in Smyrna, you should know that Cobb County, like many metro Atlanta counties, employs experienced, well-trained prosecutors and investigators whose job is to prosecute sex crimes against women and children. You need equally skilled and experienced representation on your side. At Kilgore & Rodriguez, we know that these charges can have a devastating effect on your job, your reputation, and your family—and the criminal penalties for a conviction are severe. We know that we're fighting to defend your livelihood as well as your freedom, and we can be counted on to defend your case with tenacity and the utmost discretion.


We understand that good kids can make bad decisions or exercise poor judgment. And we believe that the Juvenile Court process offers the opportunity for children under the age of 17 to correct unacceptable behavior, learn from their mistakes, and use better judgment in all aspects of their lives.

The rules governing children under the age of 17 are quite different from the laws that govern adult offenders. Maddox Kilgore is a veteran Juvenile Court lawyer who has successfully defended minors charged with delinquent acts including rape, kidnapping, and more. He is intimately familiar with the Juvenile Court system and uses that experience to help your child avoid juvenile detention and get back on the path to a successful life. In many instances, we are able to have the child's case file sealed so that the mistakes of the child don't pop up in the future.


Kilgore & Rodriguez are also experienced in defending cases involving domestic violence, theft and shoplifting, traffic and driver's license offenses, and more. In addition, we have a proven track record of winning cases on appeal. If you need a Smyrna defense attorney, you need to contact Kilgore & Rodriguez—today.
