also known as Carlos J. Rodriguez, Carlos Rodriguez
Carlos contributes his intelligence, talent, and skill defending those charged with misdemeanor and felony offenses to the Atlanta-area criminal defense firm of Kilgore & Rodriguez. He has investigated, prepared, and successfully defended those accused of murder, aggravated assault, possession & the sale drugs, DUI, and many other criminal cases.
Carlos’ interest in criminal law began as a student at Marietta High School, when he interned for Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs of the Cobb Judicial Circuit. This gave him the opportunity to see good and bad lawyering and encouraged him to be the kind of advocate that clients would be proud to say that “Carlos is my attorney.” Prior to graduating from the University of Georgia School of Law, Carlos competed on two Mock Trial tournament teams, and was selected as a National Member of the Order of Barristers, which honors those that exhibit excellence in the art of courtroom advocacy.
Carlos has been called upon by his clients to defend at trial very serious charges such as murder, kidnapping, drug trafficking, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. But make no mistake, Carlos understands that your case - misdemeanor or felony - is the most important case in the world to you. He is humbled and honored to defend those facing criminal charges, which is a sentiment that is central to the firm’s philosophy at Kilgore & Rodriguez.

Carlos is a fantastic young attorney. He is aggressive in his defense of his clients. He sees the big picture quickly, and is great on his feet. He is an exceptional talent at such a young age. I see big big things in his future.

I have seen Carlos in action many times. Carlos has two great strengths that make him such a successful criminal defense attorney. First, he has great attention to detail. He can find that needle in a haystack that can make all the difference in the outcome of a case. Second, he has a strong courtroom confidence and presence that make judges and jurors want to believe him.
