After 20 years practicing law in Bellingham, Bill Coats opened his own firm this month. Coats Law PLLC, is located in downtown Bellingham at 114 W. Magnolia St.
Coats will continue helping people who have been injured through no fault of their own, he said. Auto accidents, wrongful death, and personal injury cases are the majority of his practice.
