Timothy M. Sledd
Timothy M. Sledd is an attorney in our family law division. Prior to joining Mallor Grodner, Tim sat as the Juvenile Law Judge (Referee) in Lawrence County where he presided over paternity, custody, child support, protective order, and CHINS cases. From that experience on the bench, he honed an ability to see the many sides of complex legal issues and how to formulate cases to be most effectively heard by the Court.
Tim spent 6 years as the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Lawrence County Indiana in a courtroom almost every day, advocating, arguing, and litigating a wide variety of cases. In this role, it was very important to be able to balance the interests and needs of victims of crime with the full power of the law and its ability to punish offenders.
Tim is a registered mediator for both civil matters and family law matters. He has mediated close to 300 cases using patience, creativity, effective communication, and a ‘stay in the fight' attitude to help parties come to an agreed resolution of their legal issues. He believes in helping clients craft the outcome of their cases, and mediation is a great tool for doing this and avoiding the risks of the courtroom.
Tim is able to help you with your family law, adoption, guardianship, wills, or criminal defense needs.
Tim is an aggressive competitor. He holds the esteemed rank of 2nd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu having trained in that martial art for over 20 years. He has owned two Jiu Jitsu gyms and traveled to many states and foreign countries to teach the art. Tim takes his determination to succeed in competition and applies it to his cases and clients.
Tim is married and the father of three wonderful children -- two daughters and a son. He is active in his church and enjoys outdoor activities, reading, watching movies, and cooking.
