Ravina Sandhu


After being called to the Bar in 2006, Ravina immediately began practicing family law with Smyth & Company, a boutique family law firm in the Tri-Cities which rebranded as Smyth Hoover Sandhu in 2018.

With over 15 years of experience, Ravina has extensive knowledge in all areas of family law including the drafting and advising on cohabitation, marital and separation agreements, matters relating to parenting, child and spousal support, property and debt division, mobility rights, and adoptions.

Whenever possible, Ravina attempts to negotiate and resolve matters by settlement outside of the court process through mediation, separation agreements, or settlement conferences.  However, Ravina has experience at all levels of British Columbia courts, including in the BC Provincial Court, BC Supreme Court, and the BC Court of Appeal and is prepared to advocate for her clients through the court process whenever necessary or required.

Ravina recently became accredited as a Certified Family Law Mediator and can assist parties in both lawyer assisted mediations and non-lawyer assisted mediations.

Ravina was born and raised in Vancouver, BC where she continues to live.  Outside of work, Ravina keeps busy with her young son and enjoys travelling, reading, and spending time with her family and friends.
