Shelf Life

It's late, and Mike Ross is rounding first with Jenny at his apartment when Harvey calls from the office. Harvey tells Mike that they have to fire Stan Jacobson, the senior vice president of their client and accounting firm, Dreibach Accounting. Apparently, Jacobson lied on his resume about having gone to business school and having a CPA license. The similarities to Mike's situation aren't lost on him.

Once Harvey gets Jacobson into his office, he and Mike find out that the accounting company had known about Jacobson's fake resume for the past five years. Jacobson claims he's getting railroaded about his credentials because he recently discovered some illicit book-cooking. Jacobson storms out of the office without signing his severance package that includes a confidentiality agreement.

Mike and Harvey have to decide whether to uncover what's happening behind closed doors at Dreibach Accounting or get Jacobson to sign away his career.

About Suits

While running from a drug deal gone bad, brilliant college dropout Mike Ross slips into a job interview with one of New York City’s best attorneys, Harvey Specter.  Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey hires Mike on the spot when he sees the young man’s gifted mind and photographic memory in action.

Since then, Harvey and Mike have closed cases and tried to navigate the treacherous waters of the legal world without letting it slip that Mike doesn’t have a degree.  Along the way, they’ve enjoyed personal triumphs, suffered heartbreaking losses, and built a surrogate family with their closest confidants at the firm.

Recently, this family was almost pulled apart when a merger with Darby International pitted Harvey and founding partner Jessica Pearson against each other.  But while war between Harvey and his mentor seemed inevitable, their bond proved too strong to be broken, and the two made amends in time to save the firm from a murder cover-up.

Out of the ashes of that scandal, Pearson Specter emerged stronger than ever.  And now, for the first time, Harvey and Mike are enjoying happiness in both their personal and professional lives.  But in the high stakes legal world, contentment doesn’t last long…and Mike’s secret is still hanging over their heads, waiting to tear down everything they worked so hard to build.
