Best Answer

The amount varies depending upon geographical location, whether the attorney is connected with a law firm or has an individual private practice, works for a nonprofit organization and so forth. The median salary for all attorneys the first year of practice is $55,000. Public Defenders Defense lawyers that are provided to defendants that cannot afford one, do not make much money at all. Public defenders can get as little as a few hundred dollars for representing a client through a hearing a trial. There are set fees for performing activities. I seem to recall it was $85 for visiting the client in jail and consulting on the case and $125 for appearing in court with them. On the plus side, it gains experience, gains visibility in the legal system, and leads to referrals from the friends of the defendants. Note that often referrals don't always pay in cash! Sometimes they trade services.
