Pay by Experience Level for Attorney / Lawyer

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $67K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $99K. After 10 to 20 years, professionals can make it pretty big; the median salary sits in the six-figure neighborhood of $138K. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $159K.
