What can be done if my landlord locked me out and I need to get my personal possessions?

Question Details:

My landlord locked me out of the building that I have leased. Cops said it was a civil matter. I have a lease and keys. I didn't pay all the rent because a bay door was broken for months. I called an attorney and he said to file a restraining order. Why? Is there anything that I can do to get my stuff out fast without filing a replevin?
