Coats was very helpful in my case, he achieved what I was hoping for. He was able to get my charges reduced and showed a large amount of knowledge in law, the Bellevue/Redmond court system and was familiar with many judges. I was very impressed with his hard work and ability to win my license suspension hearing. He was very friendly and informative through the whole process which lasted a little more than a
year. I would recommend William coats to anyone and would use him in the future myself, much better than previous lawyers.

William "Beau" Coats represented me in a DUI refusal, a DUI that is treated most seriously by King County prosecutors. The DUI charges occurred in December of 2009, hearings finally resolved and charges reduced to reckless driving in March of 2011. Beau's knowledge of the law, the local courts, and experience as a trial attorney made it difficult for the prosecution to uphold a tangible case. Beau is worth every penny of the premium investment required to retain him. Penalties for a DUI are stiff in this state, hopefully I never find myself in a similar situation but I do know where to turn should the circumstance arise.

I endorse this lawyer. Although I am a little biased, Beau does an excellent job on his cases. He is thorough to a fault. He researches and contemplates his cases like no other attorney that I know. He practices in the area of criminal law, probate and real estate/contract law. I would not hesitate to hire Beau.
