Criminal Defense Attorneys in Marietta

Are you in need of criminal defense attorneys in Marietta? Kilgore & Rodriguez are experienced criminal defense attorneys with 25 years' combined legal experience. If you've been charged with a crime, you need attorneys who provide personal attention and creative, outside-the-box thinking that gets results.


Maddox Kilgore and Carlos Rodriguez grew up in the Marietta/Smyrna community, and are proud to practice as criminal defense attorneys in Marietta, where their law office is based. Carlos Rodriguez has successfully defended cases for clients accused of murder, aggravated assault, possession and sale of drugs, DUI, and many other criminal cases. Maddox Kilgore has been a law clerk on the Georgia Supreme Court, an Assistant Attorney General, and an Assistant District Attorney in the Cobb County Judicial System. As such, he knows exactly how the prosecution is going to prepare your case, and uses that knowledge of the legal system to serve his clients.


If you've been charged with a drug offense, including the possession or sale of marijuana, the Marietta criminal defense attorneys at Kilgore & Rodriguez will first and foremost seek to have the prosecution's evidence of drugs suppressed or excluded. Evidence can be thrown out if it was discovered or seized from a person, home, hotel room, cell phone, purse, or vehicle in a way that violated the defendant's Fourth Amendment right to be free from unlawful search and seizure. When evidence is thrown out, there is no case left to prosecute.


Have you been charged with a DUI? Kilgore & Rodriguez will work tirelessly to get the evidence against you excluded or suppressed, get your case dismissed, and keep you out of jail. They'll doggedly seek to uncover whether your constitutional rights were violated in the way your person or property was searched, or in how your blood or breath sample was seized.
If there is no basis for suppressing the evidence against you, Kilgore & Rodriguez will continue searching for any possible factual or legal defenses to challenge the charges against you. These can include attacking the validity of Field Sobriety Tests or Alco-Sensor and/or Intoxylizers used to establish your impairment.


Being charged with child molestation, pornography, or another sexual offense is one of the most horrible situations you can find yourself in. The criminal penalties are unimaginably harsh, and the public humiliation and scorn that can accompany being an accused sex offender can destroy your marriage, your family, your reputation, and your career.
Many metro Atlanta counties, including Cobb County, have special investigators and prosecutors whose sole duty is to investigate and prosecute sex crimes against women and children. If you've been charged with a serious sexual offense in the Cobb County area, you need the experience and expertise of the best criminal defense attorneys in Marietta.


The laws pertaining to children under the age of 17 are very different from those that govern adult offenders. Because juvenile charges can result in up to five years of incarceration, experienced representation is a must when it comes to protecting your child's future. Maddox Kilgore is a veteran Juvenile Court litigator who has successfully defended juveniles charged with delinquent acts including rape, kidnapping, vandalism of a place of worship, narcotics, and disruption of public schools.


Kilgore & Rodriguez also offer expertise and experience in the areas of domestic violence, theft and shoplifting, traffic and driver's license offenses, and mental health defenses. In addition, they have a proven track record of winning cases on appeal.

When your freedom is on the line, real courtroom experience matters. If you've been charged with a crime and are facing the possibility of jail time, call Kilgore & Rodriguez, a team of experienced criminal defense attorneys in Marietta, immediately.
