Mike Ross, having excellent memory and the very extraordinary mind, has not graduated from college - he was expelled for fraud. In spite of such a failure, he has always been dreaming of becoming a lawyer. And once Mike escaped from police raid because of the failed attempt of drug selling, he tried to hide in the hotel, where he impersonated a graduate of Harvard. Due to this situation, one of the best corporate lawyers - Harvey Specter interviewed him. Harvey carefully chose candidates for the position of his assistant, as most of them were too boring and trivial, not even mentioning the fact that they did not have sufficient skills and knowledge. When Harvey was nearly at the edge of losing hope to find a suitable candidate and was very tired of pointless task, he met Mike Ross. On the one hand, the guy did not graduate from high school, had some problems with law, but on the other hand he had an innate talent, encyclopedic knowledge of the legislation and photographic memory. Besides, he was also a self-taught lawyer. So, looking at the background of boring applicants, Mike and his brilliant ability seemed to Harvey Specter to be a decent option, though risky one. Was the appointment of Mike for the position of assistant worth doing, because this daredevil reminded him of himself so much, when he was the same age? In such a way the tandem of the most successful and creative lawyers in New York was born.
