Sheera’s Reputation:

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.

Katherine O., Chesapeake, VA

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.

H. Miller, Virginia Beach, VA

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.

Erinn D., Virginia Beach, VA

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.

E. Scott, Virginia Beach, VA

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.

Jacqueline A., Hampton, VA

Sheera is fighting hard for me

She understood my situation and the stress imposed by the whole process. She understood the errors in my divorce process as the duration of the process has gone on for so long.

Diane T., Chesapeake, VA

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.

Tracy O., Virginia Beach, VA

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!

Deborah B., Chesapeake, VA

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.

Bonnie H., Virginia Beach, VA

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.

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.

Lavonda A. Virginia Beach, VA

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.

Carolyn, Rock Hill, South Carolina
