The article reports that William Bates and Willie Coleman of Houston-based Bates & Coleman recently hung their second shingle out together, 23 years after the graduates of Thurgood Marshal School of Law set up practice together. The firm on November 4 moved into a historic house they recently purchased for their ever-growing practice, which includes a major public finance focus. Bates and Coleman met while they were in law school at Houston's Texas Southern University. Bates, a native of Cleveland, and Coleman, a native Houstonian, were part of a "running crowd" that stayed together throughout law school.
