“I am a real estate developer and I retained many attorneys during the last forty-five years. Frank
Bailey, in my opinion, is head and shoulders above all of them. He actually takes the time to read
the material I provide and he has made bold and creative decisions on my behalf. My experience with
attorneys is that they shuffle paper, file useless documents with courts, seldom have a legal strategy
and focus on running up their fees with ‘research.’ The cost of their collective disinterest and
incompetence was abysmal. Mr. Bailey is the best attorney I have ever worked with.” – Bob F., 2012
