Rachel Elizabeth Zane is a paralegal who has worked at Pearson Hardman for six years.She is at first Mike Ross’ friend, and she later develops romantic feelings for him. She aspires to be an attorney, but she suffers from test anxiety and cannot score well enough on the LSAT.
Donna Roberta Paulsen is Harvey Specter’s legal secretary, close friend, and confidant. She has worked with him since his first year as an Assistant District Attorney, and she left the DA’s office with him to work with him at Pearson Hardman. She listens in on all the conversations in his office, partially because he never turns the intercom off, and knows what he wants before he asks for it. She also knows the private details of his personal life. She is even an integral part of Harvey’s pre-courtroom ritual.
Donna is considered the best legal secretary in New York City, and she carries enough power in the firm to intimidate senior partner Louis Litt, especially since she remembers most of Louis’ indiscretions. Mike Ross often comes to her when he thinks he needs help, and she mocks him because he does not really need help. She often jokes that she knows everything, and she is witty and has sardonic sense of humor.
Jessica Lourdes Pearson is the co-founder and managing partner of Pearson Hardman. Although she is well-respected, her « overbearing nature » and « holier-than-thou attitude », as described by Harvey Specter, make it difficult for those working with her. When faced with a dilemma, she will choose the less risky choice, although it may have diminished returns. If, in spite of this, Harvey or Mike Ross choose a riskier but more profitable course of action, she will harshly rebuke him, even if the risk pays off. Despite outward appearances, Jessica has performed unethical, immoral, and possibly illegal deeds. She takes loyalty seriously and will react badly to those who betray her as in season 1 when she discovers a good friend has been stealing from the firm for years and harshly leads a lawsuit against her.
Harvey Reginald Specter (Gabriel Macht) is a newly promoted senior partner at the prestigious New York law firm Pearson Hardman, and is known as one of the city’s top litigators. He was born and raised in Chicago. In the pilot episode, he is told of his promotion to senior partner—the youngest to hold that position—and is forced to hire a Harvard Law Schoolgraduate to be his associate attorney.

Michael « Mike » James Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a lawyer with an eidetic memory who never attended law school. While in college, he aspired to be a lawyer and even passed the bar examination on a dare. However, he was expelled after his friend Trevor Evans convinced him to memorize a calculus test and sell it in order to pay off Trevor’s debts to a drug dealer, and they unknowingly sold the answers to the Dean’s daughter, forcing the dean to resign under scrutiny, but not before revoking Mike’s scholarship and expelling him.
Louis Marlow Litt is a senior partner at Pearson Hardman (later Pearson Specter) who is the firm’s leading authority and expert on all matters of corporate finance and the direct supervisor of the firm’s associate attorneys. He is self-serving and often bends rules to get what he wants. He is overly pedantic, jealous to the point of paranoia, highly suspicious, snobbish, and cruel. Louis tends to be someone who would be considered a « Wanna be » person. Louis often fails to understand how he appears to others, honestly surprised to find people hold grudges over his behavior and that he can be hurtful. However, he highly values loyalty to the firm and peers and is considered a highly dedicated worker.
He is also a skilled lawyer and is particularly fond of trials. He has a strong work ethic, proving it by finishing the associates’ monthly work in a single evening. Louis has a love of Broadway, ballet, and tennis.
