The most brilliant lawyer in New York City doesn't even have a degree. Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) has gone from drug dealing and helping law students cheat on the bar to one of the most prestigious firms in New York City. Mike made the leap by impressing Harvey with his quick wit and photographic memory when he literally stumbled into the interview. But now that Mike has actually joined the firm as Harvey's associate, he's going to need more than his wunderkind ability to survive in high-profile law's cutthroat world. He'll also need Harvey's wisdom and guidance.
With a grandmother whose medical bills are piling up and a past that is still hounding him, Mike must prove his worth at the new firm with his first big case. And to win Harvey's approval, he'll need to put his genius, charisma and street smarts to the test.
