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’s Second Saturday seminar helped build woman’s confidence
The seminar taught me about the reality of the divorce process, building my confidence and trust during any difficult time. I will recommend this seminar to others.
Sheera is upbeat, educational Second Saturday presenter
I think I’ll further educate myself with a few more seminars and read the book so I can retain a lawyer for my son and I. I felt as if the seminar opened my eyes and understanding to a bigger picture. I really liked the way Sheera spoke to us. Great humor and upbeat.
With the help of Charles Hofheimer and Sheera Herrell, a client was able to finally feel “represented and protected” after past “fruitless” efforts.
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 boquet of gratefulness.
