Audra Bailey Wilcox began practicing law in 1998 after receiving her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and then her Juris Doctor Degree, both from the University of Arkansas. After school, Audra owned a local title insurance company and at the same time practiced law under the name “A. Bailey Attorney, PA” with offices in Fayetteville, Farmington, and Prairie Grove.
In 2018, Audra transitioned her law firm and became known as Sexton, Bailey Attorneys, PA. The firm focuses its practice on Business Formation, Real Estate, Estate Planning, Medicaid Planning, Wills, Trusts, Probates, and Trust Administration. She is very proud of the SBA family and the care and concern her staff has for the clients of the firm. The firm’s areas of practice include real estate transactions, commercial and business law, Medicaid, business/farm succession planning, probate and estate planning.
Audra is a member of the Washington County Bar Association and the Arkansas Bar Association and has been admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Arkansas. She is also a member of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys where she has received extensive and continuous training in all areas of Estate Planning.
Most recently Audra was named to the Board of Governors for the Academy. Audra joins eight other attorneys from around the country on the prestigious Board, which is the most important advisory panel to the senior management team at the Academy. Board members participate in research and development and provide feedback on all new Academy products and services.
Audra has served on numerous committees for civic organizations and her church. She believes giving back to the community and to her church family is as important as her business.
Audra grew up in Brinkley, Arkansas, where her family is still engaged in farming rice and soybeans. She is proud of her roots and uses the lessons learned from the farm every day in her practice. She understands what it means to “love the land” and what it means to build a family business and want to protect it for the generations to come.
Audra and her husband Ernie have two children, Ellyn and Coleman. Together, they enjoy traveling, auctions, antiques, and are avid Razorback fans.
