Nicole B. Coates takes great satisfaction in representing the seriously injured, their families and other people who have suffered harm through no fault of their own. Ms. Coates’ practice is focused mainly in the areas of medical malpractice and complex personal injury law, where her science background and healthcare experience has been invaluable. Before practicing law, Ms. Coates studied and performed research in the field of genetic sciences and interned at the Connecticut Department of Public Health, both experiences that have informed her medical malpractice and serious personal injury work.

She recently obtained a $9 million jury verdict, rising to $14.4 million with interest, in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

In addition to her catastrophic personal injury cases, Ms. Coates represents victims of serious crimes, including those who are victims and survivors of sexual abuse. In connection with this work, she is an active member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association, where she was elected to serve as the 2023 Co-Chair of the Young Lawyers' Council.

Consistent with her goals of obtaining justice for her clients, Ms. Coates also is a member of The Connecticut Bar Association, The American Association for Justice, and the Fairfield County Bar Association, where she serves on the Board of Directors.

Ms. Coates is humbled to be able to represent individuals who often come to her at one of the most difficult times in their lives. She is devoted to helping her clients obtain justice and secure full and fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered. As an understanding attorney for her clients, Ms. Coates’ commitment to help people shines through her dedicated work.
