What do you love most about your job?

Two particularly great elements of my job are the varied cases and the everyday interaction I have with people. The interaction with people includes not only my colleagues and professional associates outside of the office but with individual clients. Dealing with estate administration often means that you are assisting the clients through a particularly difficult time in their lives and often lifting a significant burden that it is rewarding to be able to take the weight from their shoulders.
