Biography

Nicholas "Cole" Douglas is a passionate and energetic attorney who always advocates for his client’s best needs. His practice focuses on the litigation and trial of complex personal injury, wrongful death and sex abuse claims. Cole works closely with his clients and is constantly inspired by their tenacity and determination to progress forward.

Cole, a Tacoma, Washington native, earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Cole played football, basketball and threw hammer at Willamette, all while pursuing an accelerated M.B.A. program at WU’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management. After completing his M.B.A. studies, Cole returned to Washington to attend law school at Seattle University School of Law. After graduating from law school with honors, Cole began his legal career working for a Seattle/Tacoma based law firm before ultimately leaving to open his own firm, Cochran Douglas, PLLC, with business partner Loren Cochran.

In his years of practice, Cole has obtained extraordinary results on behalf of his clients, most recently obtaining a $5.9 million judgment against a Tacoma eatery in a dram shop action. Cole has served as President of the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association's New and Young Lawyer Board, and chairs the Washington State Association for Justice's Pierce County Roundtable. Cole has consistently been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers since 2018 and has also recently been named on the Top 40 Under 40 list by the National Trial Lawyers, as well as the South Sound Business Journal.
