Dear Harvey and Jessica,
There come a time when a man must look at himself in the mirror, to judge himself instead of waiting to be judged by others. For me, that time is now. You both know that I came to Pearlson Specter right out of law school but you may not know is this is the only place I have worked, the only place that I have wanted to work. It’s my life. It’s my home. And people works here are my family. You’re like my parents. And partners, they are my brothers and associates under my care are my children. Now it’s shame to admit it, but I put all of you to jeopardy for my own personal gain. I told myself it’s for a greater good but the truth is I only wanted to feel on the same level of both of you like. I can deny that no longer. I can excuse my action no longer.
Although we have differences over the long years, there’s no other 2 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 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.
