What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
Tough one--I had the rare privilege of marrying an elderly and secretive same-sex couple and then completing their estate plans immediately thereafter.  I am most proud of that because I got to honor the love two people shared their entire lives and allay their fears about the future.
