“It seems hard to imagine I have been practicing law now for 20 years,” observed Coring. “It has been an honor and privilege to help so many people with what are usually the most important problems in their lives at that point. It gives you a chance to make a positive difference every day. Certainly, I have also been honored to work with some really great colleagues over the years and I appreciate everything they have taught me along the way.”
