Alan Zaring was born in Shelbyville, Kentucky, and is a seventh generation Kentuckian. He graduated from Shelby County High School in 1987 and Georgetown College in 1991 with a double major in Political Science and Philosophy. After graduating from Georgetown, Alan worked as an Executive Branch Lobbyist in Kentucky for Konica Business Machines USA, Inc. After only three years in this position, Alan’s rank in the company rose to #1 in his account category in the United States. Desiring the opportunity to move home and be more closely connected with his community, Alan left Konica and enrolled in the Salmon P. Chase College of Law in Northern Kentucky, where he was a Commonwealth’s Scholar. He graduated from Chase in 1998, and returned to Central Kentucky, where he still practices law.
In his first four years after law school, Alan worked for two local law firms. When the opportunity presented itself, Alan started his own firm, Zaring Law Office, P.S.C., in 2003. The firm was immediately successful and has grown each year since. That success has been a direct result of his tenacious representation of his clients and the diversity of his legal practice. From the Fortune 500 corporation with complex civil issues to a Sunday driver with a speeding ticket, Alan represents all of his clients with the same robust energy, enthusiasm, and zeal. Alan has developed a reputation for fairness, honesty, and fearlessness, with an unwavering desire to win each and every case in which he is involved. This is the reason for his unparalleled record as an attorney in District Court, Circuit Court, Family Court, the Kentucky Court of Appeals, and the United States District Court. In fact, Alan has been instrumental in influencing some of the most important cases determined by the Kentucky Court of Appeals in the past ten years.
Alan is a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, the 53rd Judicial Circuit Bar Association, and the 12th Judicial Circuit Bar Association, where he previously served as President. This Association includes all judges and most attorneys in Henry, Oldham, and Trimble Counties in Kentucky. Alan is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Kentucky. He is a member of the Henry and Shelby County Chambers of Commerce, and is a member or active supporter of many conservation groups, including Quail Forever, Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation, and Trout Unlimited. In his time off, Alan enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, attending church, and being in the outdoors.
