THE KILGORE & RODRIGUEZ APPROACH
The Marietta drug lawyers at Kilgore & Rodriguez take a simple approach to drug cases. We seek to have the evidence suppressed or excluded by finding where police may have violated the defendant's constitutional rights.
Evidence of marijuana or other drugs can be thrown out if it was discovered or seized from a person, vehicle, home, hotel room, purse, or cell phone in a way that violated the defendant's Fourth Amendment right to be free from unlawful search and seizure.
When there is no basis for requiring that evidence be suppressed, the Marietta drug lawyers at Kilgore & Rodriguez look for any possible factual or legal defenses to challenge the criminal charges.
Did others have equal access to drugs found in the car or residence? Is there a legal presumption that the contraband belonged to someone else? Were the drugs found in someone else's clothing, car, or apartment? Was the defendant merely present in the vehicle or room when the drugs were found?
At Kilgore & Rodriguez, our priority in drug cases is always the same: get the evidence excluded, get the case dismissed, and keep our clients out of jail. If you've been arrested on drug charges, call the Marietta drug lawyers at Kilgore & Rodriguez right away.
