About January:

January Bailey was the first attorney hired by David Prelle Eron at Prelle Eron & Bailey in 2010. After a sojourn away, she returned home to Prelle Eron & Bailey in October 2016, and now she is a shareholder at Prelle Eron & Bailey. 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. She strives to be active in the community, where she volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters as a Big Sister.
