Though we can’t guarantee results, and every case is different, we’ve had some pretty happy clients over the years!
Ms. Herrell was knowledgeable
Ms. Herrell was very kind, she listened to what I had to say, and was responsive. Her kindness and knowledge were great and I think she will fight for my interests. I liked being able to have a video conference rather than coming in person to the law office – it was much more convenient.
Sheera took time with me
I feel like she took the time to understand the issues. I have a blended family and co-parenting issues and I am positive that she can help me.
Sheera helped answer all my questions
She helped me with a place to start as this was all new to me and never been through anything like this before. She listened to my concerns and helped me feel a little less stressed by the end of the meeting. I felt comfortable with her and I feel that she truly connected with my concerns for my children. This was all a very scary step as I was never expecting to go through this at my age. She listened to my concerns and I felt relieved just after my first consult.
Sheera put my mind at ease
I learned some new things. She was logical and down to earth. I really felt like she listened. I am ready to get this done as quickly as possible. I was terrified and she put my mind at ease.
I was comfortable talking to Sheera
She was very professional. As a woman, I felt very comfortable telling her my concerns. I feel she is capable of handling all of them. I’m hiring Hofheimer Family Law to represent me.
