Frank Bailey grew up on a farm in Marion County, Arkansas. His Hereford bull, Zato, was named the Grand Champion Bull at the County Fair in 1964. Frank then attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and entered law school. The Vietnam war was at its height and Frank was drafted into the Army. He was attatched to the 101st Airborne Division at Camp Eagle in Vietnam.
After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Army, Frank returned to the University of Arkansas, and was graduated from Law School. Frank then began practicing law on the square in Mountain Home, Arkansas. It wasn’t long until his practice grew. Now, Frank has over 35 years of experience in trying medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
In 1988, Frank became Board Certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Frank has been appointed three times to serve as a Special Associate Justice to the Arkansas Supreme Court. He is a Diplomate of the National College of Advocacy. Frank currently serves as the President of the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce and is a member of the Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation Advisory Board.
