Zoe Lawford is a former senior associate at Pearson Hardman, and one of Harvey Specter's former love interests.


She appears first in the episode "Sucker Punch" playing pool with Harvey, whom she has had a history with. She is revealed to be a former lawyer who worked for Pearson Hardman and was not on friendly terms with Jessica Pearson. She is brought on as a jury consultant to help Harvey and the firm with battling out their lawsuit.

Later on, she appears in "Blind-Sided" where she has a date with Harvey, who wanted to celebrate his victory. Unfortunately, she had her niece Olivia over, the two spend an evening together and reconcile. They share a surprising kiss, and it is disclosed that Harvey has serious intentions towards her, unlike other women. At the end of the episode, when Harvey comes to Zoe for the second time, it is revealed that her brother has cancer, and she's going to raise Olivia outside of New York, devastating Harvey.

Zoe is later mentioned in "Blood in the Water", as Harvey and Donna share conversation about Zoe leaving him. He seems shattered and takes out his frustrations on Mike.

The last mention comes from "War". Donna claims that Harvey let Zoe go and did not fight enough for her. He responded that she left him, and he did not want to replace Olivia's dad.


  • Jacinda Barrett, the actress that plays Zoe, is Gabriel Macht's wife. Zoe's niece Olivia is their daughter Satine Anais Geraldine Macht (5 years old at the time).

    • Hi guys! Do you think she'll come back in Season 3? :) I would really love to!
    • I think it's likely she'll reappear at some point, probably not in a major way, but I can see Harvey going to see her and Olivia if...
