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!
Sheera was very personable, empathetic, sympathetic, and knowledgeable.
The Seminar Was Really Helpful
The seminar was really helpful. I gained a lot of knowledge on separation and custody. I really appreciate all of your help. Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to inform women on their rights in divorce and separation.
Sheera Was Direct!
I like how Sheera was able to direct each question on a general note and explicitly explain each scenario to each individual’s circumstances. I like that the therapist spoke about our emotions and how to get them back in control. We can all be in control of what we will allow to effect us or not.
I Want Her For My Divorce Lawyer!
In the Second Saturday seminar Sheera is very knowledgeable and I want her for my divorce lawyer! I don’t feel so blinded and she was very informative. I needed to hear information from the therapist and I will heed to her advice.
Thank you to Charlie and Sheera
Dear Mr. Hofheimer,
My daughter and I have spent much time trying to obtain financial assistance for her and her twins. It was fruitless until we were recommended to your firm. Our initial consultation with you sparked hope. You seemed to be a man capable of getting a job done. You turned our case over to Sheera Herrell who reflected your reputation and firm in a most commendable way. She was accessible, knowledgeable of our case and quick to act. We felt represented and protected in a most fundamental way. Our family sends your firm a bouquet of gratefulness.
