Storyline

Even the best lawyer in New York City can use some help. While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter. 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. Written by USA Publicity

Another series about rich smarmy lawyers with expensive suits. We know Harvard educated Harvey Specter has one.

Harvey keeps criticising his new associate Mike Ross's cheap suits. Even though Mike mentions his money woes. He was not drug dealing for the benefit of his health.

Harvey is the best closer of law deals in the city. Arrogant and successful but lacking compassion. He has been promoted as the senior partner in his prestigious law firm.

Mike is a university drop out, he passes exams for money. A photographic memory and running away from cops brings him into contact with Harvey who is looking for a new legal associate. Mike has the skill sets that other Harvard law graduates do not have. Ducking and diving.

In this pilot, I reckon Suits is really going to be about Mike Ross and how he progresses with the firm. Harvey is basically any other hot shot lawyer who you can find in these glossy American legal dramas.
