About Joni

Learn Joni’s areas of practice.

I have been devoted to family law since my admittance to the Indiana Bar in 2005.  As a family law attorney, 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, Guardian Ad Litem and Arbitrator.  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.

So glad she was recommended
I would pick her a million times over. She was very thorough and honest. She made valid points, stuck to our goal in obtaining custody, provided all documents for judge, and gave great advice that was fair for both parties. She truly wants what is best for the child and makes that clear from the beginning! If you are deciding on who to pick for a custody battle look no further!!!

Our Savior
We hired Joni the better part of 5 years ago. My wife and I kept hearing horror stories from there Mother’s house and all unfortunately / fortunately ended up to be true. We had evidence 5 years ago but nothing close to where a father needed to be to gain full custody. We had all odds stacked against us. We had Joni and her advice and faith. We followed everything Joni said to a T and I can say she’s brilliant and a Godsend. We beat more odds than what I think Joni, my wife (soon to be my boys mother) could ever had imagined. It’s all do to Joni and her team Erin. They are amazing. They lead and guided from the heart and when it comes to everything we live by one simple thing... “WHAT DID JONI SAY” There’s 2 angels who looked over my kids and still care more than life itself. 1. Joni Sedberry 2. And there school counselor. Sometimes/ most times prayers are answered and Joni Sedberry is 1. And we are forever grateful...

Professionalism at it's best!
I hired Mrs. Sedberry for a child custody case and I couldn't have made a better choice. She was very professional from start to finish. She worked hard and diligently on my case to receive a positive outcome. I couldn't have made a better choice. Thanks for your services.

Custody issues
I called and did an interview over the phone with Joni Sedberry. She sounded very nice over the phone and I set up a consultation with her. My fiancé and I went in and met with her for about an hour and went over the specifics of my case. I needed urgent action because I had two boys living with me and I was paying an exorbitant amount in child support. During the consultation joni made a very inappropriate comment to my fiancé but other than that we were set to petition for a lesser child support amount. I put down a substantial retainer. I waited a week and inquired as to where things were with the case. I was sinking financially but told to wait another week. I was told that she was having personal issues. A week later she called and i was very sympathetic to her regarding her personal issues but she became very emotional and angry with me. It was very clear to me that she all of a sudden did not seem to be advocating for me. I asked her boss Brad Banks, after explaining the situation if I could have my retainer returned to me. He only gave me a portion of this back and in the end I was back to square one starting all over again with a whole lot less money.

I do not recall this interaction or any time during my practice when personal matters would have been communicated to clients. I take client satisfaction very seriously. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss your experience.
