Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Law Firm Attorneys with a rich background of experience are typically rewarded with larger paychecks. Although employees with less than five years' experience earn around $72K on average, the five-to-10 year group has a much higher, six-figure median of $101K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $120K in this role. Law Firm Attorneys who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $123K on average.
