He received his B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1982. He earned his J.D. from John F. Kennedy University School of Law in 1987. Coats then went on to earn an M.C.R.P. from California Polytechnic State University in 1996.

He left the firm in 1994 to become a planning consultant for the Rogoway Planning Group in San Luis Obispo. He also worked concurrently as an associate at the law firm of Belsher and Becker. Then, in 1998, Coats joined Engle and Bride, where he practiced as an associate, until being made a partner in 2005.

During his time in private practice, Coats specialized in civil litigation and insurance defense, with an emphasis on medical and dental malpractice cases.
