Do I want to hire your family law firm?

  There are very few things that go right to the heart of all the intimate things in your life like family law. I mean, I’m biased, but I like to think that lawyers everywhere are doing good work, but family lawyers are – in my opinion – one of the categories of lawyers that…

“Representing women only in divorce is discrimination!”

  Even though it says all over our website that we only represent women in divorce, custody, and support cases, we get quite a few live chats and phone calls from men looking for family law attorneys. We sometimes even get women who complain, either on our social media channels, in live chat messages, or…

Should my child be in therapy during my custody case?

OCTOBER 26, 2020 BY KATIE CARTER   Contested cases are hard on everyone involved. I work with women, so my perspective is often that of the wife and mother. I actually rarely see children. It’s really not appropriate; for me to do my job, I have to have conversations with my client that could be harmful for…

Preparing for Virginia Divorce

Sun Tzu wrote, “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting,” and I think it’s a quote that applies really well to family law in general. To be fair, almost all of my cases come in with both parties feeling pretty agitated. Many clients tell me that they think their case…

Why do you represent women only?

So, if you’ve found your way here, you probably already know that we’re different from every single other family law firm in the Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s right – there’s no other law firm in the Commonwealth that represents women only in divorce and custody cases. There are, however, two other firms dedicated to representing…

What kinds of free divorce and custody information can I get?

While there are very, very few (if any) attorneys who’ll actually take on an entire divorce or custody case pro bono, there’s tons of free divorce and custody information out there. After all, having the right information is critical, because it will help ensure that you make the best decisions for yourself (and your children)…

Sheera Herrell’s Coast Live TV Appearance

We’ve been in the news before for doing what we do – representing women exclusively in divorce and custody cases in Virginia – but it’s always exciting to have an opportunity to share with a broader audience. We’ve worked hard over the last nearly thirty years to make sure that Virginia women have the divorce…

Divorce Virginia Seminars

Divorce isn’t easy. And, if you’ve never been divorced before (or even if you have), there’s probably a lot you don’t know. That’s not your fault. There’s a lot to know, and the law is constantly changing. Besides that, it’s very state specific, so even what you know from your friend’s divorces doesn’t necessarily translate…

Pregnant and getting a Virginia divorce?

If you’re expecting, especially if it’s your first child (and even if it’s not), you’re experiencing a lot of emotions. You’ve probably heard of it (or even experienced it) before; you know what they say about the pregnancy brain! You’re feeling all the feels, and you’re a little extra emotional, and if you add to…
