Dear Harvey and Jessica!
There comes a time when a man must look at himself in the mirror. To judge himself instead of waiting to be judged by others. And for me, that time is now. You both know I came to Pearson Specter right out of law school, but what you may not know is, this is the only place I’ve ever worked, it’s the only place I’ve ever wanted to work, it is my life, it is my home, and the people that work here are my family. You’re like my parents, and the partners, they’re like my brothers, and the associates under my care, like my children, and I’m ashamed to admit it but, I put all of you in jeopardy for my own personal gain.
I told myself it was for the greater good, but the truth is, I just wanted to feel on the same level as both of you. I can deny that no longer. I can excuse my actions no longer.
Although we’ve had our differences over the years, there are no two people I respect more. Your names are on the wall for a reason, and mine is not for a reason. And I refuse to put either one of you through the pain of having to fire me.
So effective immediately, I, Louis Litt, am resigning from Pearson Specter.
Please take care of my home.
