Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $78K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $114K on average — a distinctly larger sum. After working for 10 to 20 years, Los Angeles Attorneys make a median salary of $130K. Old hands who claim more than two decades on the job enjoy average earnings of $159K.
