About January:

January Bailey was the first attorney hired by David Prelle Eron when the firm was still Eron Law, P.A., in 2010. After a sojourn away, she returned home to Eron Law, P.A. in October 2016, and now she is a shareholder at Prelle Eron & Bailey, P.A. Her practice concentrates primarily on bankruptcy matters.

January is a native of Wichita and remembers the days when Kellogg had a stoplight at each intersection! In her time off of work, January enjoys spoiling her nieces and nephew, cheering for KU basketball, cycling, and traveling.
