Best Answer

Most of the highest paid lawyers are corporate lawyers, however, an entry-level lawyer from an Ivy League Law School can make over 1 million dollars in their first year in a top-class New York City/etc. private law firm. However, this situation is extremely rare and only reserved for the best of the best.

Th above answer is totally wrong. No First year attorney makes $1 million to start.

Please moderate these answers. The one above is ridiculous.
