Quitain is that a lawyer is not always right. not for our disadvantage in not making unethical movements to easily win a case. That not because we have a title of “attorney”. The book also tells us that we must always look for improvement. because after it. through practice. nor let the client experience losses because we. It is through our experience that we are able to find our real purpose in life. through our every day experience. that we become superior to others. it is throughout our lives.
