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.
