Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) was blessed with a brilliant mind and a good heart, but some bad luck and worse choices derailed his plan to go into law. However, a chance meeting with Harvey Specter brought Mike's considerable gifts to one of the top law firms in New York, and gave him a second chance to get his life on track.
Since then, Mike has learned to win big cases the Harvey Specter way and become a formidable lawyer in his own right, while going to any lengths necessary to hide the fact that he doesn't have a degree. The formerly rudderless young man has also built a surrogate family with his colleagues at Pearson Specter, and found true love with Rachel Zane.
More recently, Mike made a stab at going legit as an investment banker, but fate (and ego) nearly conspired to take away everything, including the woman he loves. Now, Mike is back by Harvey's side and picking up the pieces with Rachel. However, the weight of his secret still hangs heavy around his neck, and Louis's recent discovery of the truth promises to make it all the heavier.
