What question do you hear most often from clients?

"Clients generally come to me with very precise needs. They expect me to have, not only the knowledge required to simplify those complicated calculations, but also to be able to deliver those calculations in a way that will be effective in whatever court proceeding they might be dealing with or whatever negotiation they might be dealing with. The key is to help resolve the dispute in as cost effective a way as possible."
