Sheera R. Herrell
Sheera joined Hofheimer Family Law Firm back in 1999 when she was a brand new graduate of Albany Law School. From the moment she started working, her emphasis has been on representing women only in divorce and custody cases. In May 2017, Sheera took over as managing partner of the firm.
Sheera has a diverse background, both legally and personally. As our firm’s only collaboratively trained attorney, Sheera works closely with Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Tidewater, and currently serves as the group’s chair. She’s also a skilled litigator, even successfully taking cases on to the appellate court level.
A Certified Financial Planner™, Sheera is exceptionally skilled at handling cases with complicated equitable distribution issues. She applies her considerable skills to obtaining the best financial settlements for her clients.
Sheera is a member of the Virginia State Bar, Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, Virginia Beach Bar Association, Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Tidewater, International Association of Collaborative Professionals, Financial Planning Association and Virginia Collaborative Professionals. Sheera was selected for inclusion in Virginia Super Lawyers Rising Stars Edition 2008-2014, a Super Lawyer in 2015-2018, and is committed to providing all of her clients the personal attention they deserve.
Sheera and her husband live in Virginia Beach with their two children. Sheera is also a violist and a current member of Symphonicity, the Symphony Orchestra of Virginia Beach. She also enjoys going to the gym (in fact, you’ll find her at Wareing’s Gym almost every day), and loves running in local races with her kids.
When you meet Sheera, you’ll notice that, in person, she’s thoughtful, friendly, and understanding. She’s experienced and up for anything—in her practice and also in her personal life. In fact—Sheera gave birth to her daughter in the car on the way to the hospital—so let’s just say she’s up for just about anything!
Though we can’t guarantee results, and every case is different, we’ve had some pretty happy clients over the years!
She responds to my requests
Thank you for all your help over the past year and a half. You have always been so prompt to respond to my requests and so understanding. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you.
Sharp as a tack
Sheera understood the facts and developed a plan that I am completely happy with. I have and will continue to recommended her whenever someone needs a divorce lawyer.
Sheera has represented me in the past
Sheera has represented me, very successfully, in the past. She is compassionate and warm in person, yet tough and effective in the courtroom. I believe in getting out ahead of potential problems, which was the purpose of this consultation. I highly recommend her!
Sheera was very informative and competent
She knew what she was talking about and showed me mistakes other legal professionals missed in my court filings. I was impressed with her knowledge and she laid out all of my options for me in a clear and concise way, which is exactly what I needed.
My biggest regret is that I did not find Sheera sooner
My ex-husband, also an Attorney, can manufacture more loopholes and psychological backflips than any other 100 people I know – and Sheera handled him VERY well. The fact my divorce was granted on Halloween day could not have been more poetic. My biggest regret is that I did not find her sooner and my biggest relief is that she helped rescue me from a marital nightmare. I give her my highest respect and recommendation – and so do my parents and friends.
