Thanks for the feedback!
I've been practicing law for 30 years, predominately bankruptcy for the past 15. Last year I netted $400K, mostly from consumer bankruptcy filings. As long as banks and mortga…ge servicers remain stupid as dirt the future is bright!
Average salery is $50,000-$100,00.With bonuses and profit sharing.It all depends on their rates they charge,what kind firm they are in.
From Euro 1200 to Euro 120,000. Per month of course.
They make about 130,000 their first year . But, by their tenth year they are making 320,000. That is actually a great amount of money. You should also try being a lawyer in an…other state where you can make so much more money. Also, if you make your own law company you can be making double the prise. Hope this piece of information helped you. Thank you and be a great lawyer. Maybe in the future you will be so successful that i will be working with you.
I practice law for an expensive law firm in D.C. I make about 200k to 300k per year. But my wife is a lawyer for the federal government and gets paid around 410k per year. I r…ecomend that type of lawyer because she makes alot and gets to carry a gun and arrest people.
salaries differ greatly. Other than an associate, there is no standard. An associate in a medium-sized city can start anywhere from 70 to 100K per year. Partners can make seve…ral times that amount. It really boils down to how much money the attorney can generate for their firm. The more hours they bill, the more they get paid. Trial lawyers can sometimes earn one third of what their client is awarded. But to do this, they must forego their hourly rate, so it's only worth it if they win the case.
There is no simple answer to this question. Lawyers in the public sector (prosecutors, public interest lawyers) typically make far less than those in private practice. S…tarting salaries for large law firms are $100,000 +. Many public interest lawyers make less than half that amount. Successful partners in the largest firms make more than $1,000,000 a year.
Entertainment Lawyer An entertainment lawyer is an attorney who specializes in all legal matters pertaining to the entertainment industry. "Transactional" lawyers …draw up and negotiate contracts between artists, writers, producers, directors, agents, studios and record companies. "Litigators" handle the lawsuits for personnel in the entertainment industry. A handful of entertainment lawyers do both transactions and litigation. Struggling entertainment lawyers, junior associates and "in house" lawyers make $75,000 to $150,000 a year. Litigators can make in the seven figures by working on contingency fee. The top transactional lawyers make $400,000 to $5,000,000 a year. Nice work if you can get it!

I am personally a lawyer that specializes in murder. In my first year I made around 124,000 dollars after taxes. It all depends on the education you have and which firm you wo…rk at. I live in NYC, so the pay is a little it higher because of the cost of living.
5000 usd a MONTH
It depends on how popular the lawyer is, sometimes they dont have fixed salaries, it could depend on how many court cases they do
they make about 500 dollars per hour or evey client.
I wouldn't listen to the Pay Scale garbage. A typical lawyer right out of law school that didn't fail in all his classes (i.e below 70%) and knows what he or she is doing s…hould be looking at around a 6 fig salary. This can depend where you work, what you specialize in and if you work for private our public sector. (Private pays more)

The population of attorneys is more concentrated in …urban areas where government agencies, law firms and big corporations have an established presence.
