About Sam Coring

Sam Coring was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri. He attended Springfield Catholic schools and graduated from Springfield Catholic High School. After graduation, Sam took a trip to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. It was there that he discovered a passion for law.

Sam obtained his undergraduate degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. After graduating, he was presented with an opportunity to work with Representative Mel Hancock, a congressional representative from Missouri. Sam seized the opportunity while maintaining his personal ambitions of becoming a lawyer.

For the next eight years, Sam worked for Representative Hancock while attending law school at night. Sam’s graduation from law school coincided with Representative Hancock’s retirement from Congress. Sam decided to return to his roots in Springfield, take the bar exam, and begin practicing law.

Sam Coring at RGG Law

After moving back to Springfield, Sam joined the team at RGG Law in 1998. He specializes in both bankruptcy law and is also part of the law firm’s team of Social Security disability lawyers. Sam is proud to have been a part of RGG Law for almost 20 years. He considers RGG Law to be a full-service law firm that focuses on serving the client through difficult circumstances.

As a bankruptcy lawyer, Sam believes that bankruptcy can truly be a second chance to those in a desperate time of need. He knows that there can be many misconceptions with bankruptcy and that many think it means the end of the world. Sam strives every day to make a difference in people’s lives by working at RGG Law and helping them get a fresh start through bankruptcy.
Outside of the RGG Law office, Sam enjoys being involved in the Springfield community. He serves as the Den Leader for Cub Scout Pack 214 and on the St. Agnes Council for Knights of Columbus. He also enjoys coaching youth baseball through the YMCA.
