Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Attorneys in San Francisco, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money.

On average, San Francisco Attorneys make $153K following one to two decades on the job. Attorneys in San Francisco who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $175K.
