New computer store, attorney's office open

new local businesses by Matt Schroeder
The White Stallion Center on Woodinville-Duvall Road is two businesses larger than it was just a few weeks ago. Nathan Douglas, attorney, and ANS Computers recently opened their doors.
   Douglas has more than 18 years of experience in the legal field. He offers services in criminal defense, family law, auto accidents and personal injury, wills, trusts, probate, and insurance claims.
   A graduate of Gonzaga University School of Law, Douglas recently achieved his goal of returning to private practice. Before opening his own business, he was the Vice President of Claims for the Grange Insurance Group. As for his new business, Douglas says it's "so far, so good."
   Douglas intends his new practice to provide experienced, affordable representation to residents of the Eastside and Snohomish County.
   ANS Computers is owned by local resident Steven Graham. Graham is also the owner of the Silver Fox Training Stables, but recently decided to make his interest in computers more than a hobby.
   ANS Computers specializes in PC customization, business and in-home repair, special orders, and consignment of old computers.
   "The first idea of opening this store came when I needed something for my own computer, and had to go all the way to Lynnwood to get it," said Graham. "There wasn't a computer store anywhere around here."
   In addition to sales, upgrades, and repairs, ANS Computers can help people get connected to the Internet.
