Located on the big island of Hawaii, Hilo is Hawaii's second largest city. It is the county seat of Hawaii County, which encompasses the entire big island. Hilo was struck twice by devastating Tsunamis in 1946 and 1960. These tsunamis changed the makeup of the city and drove development inland, but the city has experienced a modern resurgence in the 1980s and is still a major tourist destination on the big island.
Hilo lawyers can assist you with any legal issue you may be facing, including personal injury, criminal defense, real estate transactions, family law, and many more.
Attorneys in Hilo are currently engaged in a lawsuit attempting to stop a local surf school from opening on Honoli'i bay. The lawyers, all local surfers, allege that the new school will make the already crowded surf spot unsafe. The case is currently ongoing and current efforts are aimed at denying the school the necessary permits.
Your Hilo attorneys should be familiar with the Hawaii Circuit Court, and the Hawaii District Court. The Circuit Court handles all jury trials, while the District Court handles smaller matters such as landlord tenant disputes and civil disputes below $10,000.
