Attorney Salaries

March 2, 2011 at 1:26 pm ($)

The ABA Journal has provided a useful tool which provides attorney salary data for any given county in the U.S.  Additionally, the tool provides data including the number of attorneys practicing in a given area as well as population and growth.  I think this serves many purposes: 1) Law students can get a more realistic idea of what attorneys earn and the “saturation” of a particular market; 2) Paralegals and other support staff can guesstimate what their bosses earn; 3) Attorneys can compare their salaries to the mean and median (resulting in either temporary euphoria or extreme anger).

Nevertheless, this is a great tool! Check it out at the ABA Journal website, here.
