Maui County Attorney for Temporary Restraining Orders

A Skilled Maui Domestic Abuse Claims Lawyer

A temporary restraining order (TRO) is often used as a shield to protect an individual from domestic violence or abuse. Sometimes, however, a TRO is used as a weapon and a way for a bitter ex to gain the upper hand in a dispute.

Whether you need to request a TRO to protect yourself and your family or you need to fight a TRO that was vengefully issued against you, I can help. I am Kyle B. Coffman, Attorney at Law, a Maui County lawyer for temporary restraining orders who has the experience and knowledge necessary to defend you and your rights.

Temporary Restraining Orders and Protective Orders

A TRO may be granted for one or more acts of domestic abuse, which include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Threats of physical abuse
  • Malicious property damage
  • Extreme psychological abuse

After the court issues a TRO, a hearing is scheduled approximately 10 days later to determine whether to annul the order or whether to grant a one-year, two-year or three-year protective order. Because TROs and protective orders also affect parenting time and child custody issues, it is important to consult an attorney who understands all aspects of family law.

At my Wailuku law firm, I can educate you about your options and rights. I can also review the TRO application with you, analyze its strengths and weaknesses, and advise you accordingly. If necessary, I will interview witnesses and investigate the particular circumstances surrounding the order.

Compassionate, Dedicated Legal Representation

I am approachable, sincere and sympathetic toward my clients in the difficulties they face. You can always feel open and able to talk about any of your legal concerns, and I will make myself available to answer any questions that you may have. In addition, you can trust that I will handle your case with the discretion and respect that it deserves.
