Contingency Fee Representation Lawyers In Kilauea Hawaii

Kīlauea (literally, "much spreading" in Hawaiian) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauaʻi County, Hawaiʻi, United States. The population was 2,092 at the 2000 census. Kilauea is a small town on the northern shore of Kauai, one of the eight islands that make up the state of Hawaii. According to the Hawaii State Info website, 2,092 people reside in Kilauea, which is 1.5 square miles. It is nicknamed the “Guava Capital of the World” because it has the largest guava plantation in the world. In a source of some confusion, Kilauea, the Kauai town, shares its name with Kilauea, the volcano located on the Big Island of Hawaii, more than 500 km away at the extreme opposite end of the island chain. Kilauea, the volcano, is active today, but there has not been any volcanic activity anywhere on Kauai in millions of years.
