You need a family law attorney with experience in domestic violence.
If you found my answer helpful or it was the best answer for you, please mark it. Thank you. This is intended as general legal advice and not intended to create an attorney/client relationship.
Usually a Family lawyer (Divorce etc) but one who has experience in this.
A former prosecutor who handled DV cases would also be excellent.
Generally yes, a family law attorney can assist you with filing for an injunction, but there is also legal aid in many counties that provides pro bono assistance with filing the petition. Check with your county clerk's office to see if there is anyone who is available to assist. They may not attend the hearing with you, but would at least be able to make sure you fill out the paperwork correctly. There has to be some instances of actual violence or the threat of violence in order for the court to enter an injunction, so you would need to put in specific acts, dates and any witnesses in order to prove that an injunction is necessary.
As always, the responses given are based upon the limited information provided in the question and general legal procedure. It is advised that if your situation contains complex issues or facts to consult personally with an attorney for your choosing. In criminal cases where liberty is at stake, a defendant has an absolute right to a court appointed attorney if you cannot afford one.
