"We put away bad people, Harvey. We fought tough battles and we won. I taught you how to win."
"That's not exactly what you taught me, though."
"I know that you didn't always approve of the means, but we both know that the end result was always right.
"

— Cameron Dennis and Harvey Specter

Cameron Dennis is a prosecutor and was one of Harvey Specter's mentors. He was the Manhattan District Attorney whom Harvey worked under as Assistant District Attorney before working at Pearson Hardman. He has questionable ethics and is willing to engage in unlawful or illegal acts in order to have the guilty incarcerated.

History

"Guilty is guilty."
"That's not the way the system works."
"The system is broken and you know it. It's not reasonable doubt. Juries want to be sure without a shadow of a doubt."
―Cameron Dennis and Harvey Specter[src]

In "Rules of the Game", Cameron is accused of and investigated for burying evidence, and Harvey is forced to testify against Cameron. Being his mentor, Harvey is unwilling to help form a case against Cameron, so Harvey asks him to just step down from his position and make a deal with the other side. When Cameron realizes that Harvey's integrity might just make him talk against him, he decides to sell out Harvey to save himself, instead. When Jessica finds out, she uses the information Donna gave her to blackmail Cameron into backing down and resigning.[1]

Cameron is later appointed special prosecutor to handle the bribery and eventual murder charges against Ava Hessington, pitting himself against Harvey once more. However, before a verdict can be given, Cameron settles the case when Harvey and Jessica convince Edward Darby to create a false testimony and have Stephen Huntley charged and arrested for the murder. Additionally, Cameron works with Harvey, Jessica and Mike Ross to have Darby forfeit his license to practice law in the United States, thereby dissolving the Pearson Darby Specter merger.[2]

Years later, Cameron contacts Harvey when he discovers that Harvey is attempting to have Frank Gallo released from prison. As Mike is being released from Federal Correctional Institution, Danbury by Sean Cahill, Mike contacts Cameron and has Cameron release fellow cellmate Kevin Miller in exchange for testifying against Gallo, which Cameron agrees to and honors.[3]
