Pavneet Matharu – Family Law Solicitor

Pavneet Matharu leads ORJ’s Family Law department and represents clients in all matters ranging from separation, divorce, financial & property matters, domestic violence and children disputes.


Pavneet has worked in family law since 2009 and gained her considerable experience at a London law firm where she headed the family department and successfully grew the business. Pavneet relocated to the West Midlands in 2013 and headed up the family law department at a firm in Birmingham, before joining ORJ in 2015. During this time, Pavneet has built long-lasting connections with other Family Law professionals in both London and the West Midlands.


Pavneet’s Indian heritage means she has considerable cultural knowledge of the Asian community, and is therefore well placed to advise and sensitively handle such cases.


Pavneet has particular expertise in complex children disputes between parents. Pavneet recently represented a client who was the father in a children dispute and who found himself subject to very serious allegations made by the mother, as a result of which he was not permitted to spend time with his daughter. After many intense months of preparation for a three-day hearing, the Judge found in favour of Pavneet’s client and dismissed all of the allegations that had been made against him. Contact between Pavneet’s client and his daughter was re-established immediately and, shortly after, shared-care arrangements were put in place.


Pavneet’s clients and colleagues describe her as being very empathetic and a good listener and she is commended for her efficiency, organisation and professionalism. Pavneet is known for going the ‘extra mile’ to meet her clients’ expectations and to achieve the most desirable outcome.
