Review Joni Sedberry

About Me

I have been devoted to family law since my admittance to the Indiana Bar in 2005.  As a family law attorney in Indianapolis, I assist my clients through the divorce process while keeping the interests of children in the forefront.  I represent clients in all areas of family law, including: divorce; child custody; parenting time; child support; grandparents rights; paternity testing; emancipation; post-decree modifications; legal separation; adoptions and name changes.   

I am trained as a Mediator, Collaborative Law Professional and Guardian Ad Litem.  I strive to assist my divorce and family law clients in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.   I am originally from Grant County, Indiana and currently reside in Hamilton County with my husband and three children.
