Well, depending on the field they specialize in and where they work, that's what makes the difference in what the lawyer is paid. Family lawyers are one of the types of lawyers that earn the lower salaries: i.e. $40k - $70k. Some people tend to think criminal lawyers get paid more... but that's not true. Criminal public lawyers get paid less because they do not work in a private firm. Criminal lawyers that do private cases are often paid more.
