While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) a brilliant young college dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica (Gina Torres) and Harvey's arch nemesis Louis (Rick Hoffman), who seem intent on making Mike's life as difficult as possible. In the second season, Mike's future is in question after a friend threatens to reveal the he never graduated from law school. Meanwhile, Harvey does whatever it takes to prevent Jessica from learning Mike's secret. However, the firm may have bigger issues to deal with when Hardman returns to the practice.
