Bailey DorseyAssociate Attorney

We help the little guy. I worry that if we don’t help him or her, then who will?

Bailey earned both her undergraduate degree in accounting and her law degree at the University of Memphis.  She is a native Memphian and a graduate of The Hutchison School.

When she graduated law school, she wasn’t sure which area of law she wanted to practice.  But, after landing her first job at The Crone Law Firm, she realized she was in the right place.  “Employment law is hard.  It’s intensive.  But it’s so rewarding.  We’re standing up for people – and that is work we can feel proud of,” she says.

She reports members of the firm work closely.  “Every case is a team effort.  We constantly bounce ideas off each other to find solutions that are best for each client,” she says.

Bailey’s an animal lover who enjoys spending time with her own two pups.  She also volunteers with the Junior League of Memphis.
