What question do you hear most often from clients?

"Daniel you know I've worked with you before and let's say a personal injury claim, but would you be able to help me with this other type of claim let's say a commercial insurance claim?" and the answer is almost always yes. And the reason the answer is yes is, it isn't really a question of what's the particular nature of the claim, it's more about what skills am I bringing to the table and can I offer to the client to help them solve the problem.
