Obtaining, Or Defending Against, Temporary Restraining Orders And Temporary Injunctions

The Jackson Law Firm frequently obtains, or defends against, temporary restraining orders and temporary injunctions.

A temporary restraining order is a court order prohibiting one party from taking immediate action adverse to the other party's rights. Because temporary restraining orders are issued on an emergency basis, they generally expire after 14 days. Temporary restraining orders and temporary injunctions are frequently sought when a former employee violates a non-compete or non-disclosure agreement, or some other provision in an employment agreement. Temporary restraining orders are also sought in matters involving theft of trade secrets and other legal disputes.

Before the temporary restraining order expires, a hearing is held to determine whether there is a legal basis for transforming the temporary restraining order into a temporary injunction. A temporary injunction lasts until the underlying dispute is resolved or there is a trial.

The Jackson Law Firm has represented individuals and businesses at hundreds of hearings involving temporary restraining orders and temporary injunctions. Whether you are seeking or opposing the entry of a temporary restraining order or injunction, the Jackson Law Firm has the experience and knowledge to effectively represent you in these unique, sometimes complicated proceedings.
