Q&A: What do you like most about the practice of law?

Having the opportunity to find a solution to someone's problem that is the most important thing that they have going on in their life is the best part about practicing law. I consider it high praise to be entrusted with someone's biggest problem. I don't think there is a greater compliment for a lawyer than to be asked for help.
