Siloam Springs lawyer celebrating 15 years
On the day after Labor Day in 1996, the Texarkana native started the Bailey Law Firm in Siloam Springs. At the time, he was one of but a few attorneys in northwest Arkansas who spoke Spanish. His decision to learn that language turned out to be fortuitous — the 2010 Census puts the population in Benton County at 221,339 and 15.5 percent of those residents are of Hispanic or Latino origin. Compare that to 2000 when 8.8 percent of 153,406 residents in the county were Hispanic and to 1990 when 1.39 percent of the 97.499 citizens there were of Hispanic origin. One might argue that Bailey was at the right place at the right time when he set up his office.
So, what’s Bailey doing to celebrate the 15th anniversary of his law office? He’s holding an open house on Thursday (Sept. 8 ) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at his office at 206 E. University in Siloam Springs. Drop by and wish him well if you’re in the neighborhood.
You can find more details about the open house at Bailey’s site.
