Quitting while you are behind

Back on October 17, 2011, I posted an entry entitled Public Defender 101 – Rule #26. The rule was very simple: be willing to accept responsibility for your mistakes. The rationale behind the rule is that just because you are an attorney does not mean that you are infallible. Moreover, when you try to deny responsibility about your mistakes, you simply compound the problem, and it will continue to haunt you long after people have forgotten about your original mistake.

Here is an example of someone not following the rule and more importantly, not knowing when to quit when you are behind.
