Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience is important when determining pay for Firm Attorneys. After five to 10 years, salaries go from $71K to beyond six figures at $100K. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $121K. Firm Attorneys who stay in the field for several decades see their salaries grow less quickly after 20 years, with incomes eventually hovering around $123K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about a third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 7 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 11 percent. More than half of respondents report one to nine years of experience.
