Here's Why Jessica Pearson Got Disbarred on 'Suits' and What's in Store for Her Next

By

Pearson is the spin-off of Suits that follows character Jessica Pearson (played by Gina Torres). It shows her life as she starts over in Chicago after she got disbarred during Season 6 of Suits.

Why did Jessica Pearson get disbarred? 

During the midseason finale of Season 6, Jessica was disbarred after defending Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). Mike was pretending to be a lawyer and because of Jessica’s choice to defend him, her license in New York was revoked from practicing law. Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) was mad at her disbarment and encouraged Jessica to fight for her license. She didn’t want to and said she would be free of any legal strings attached to her life in New York.
