Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Attorneys with Leadership skills, more experience generally translates to higher pay.

Between 10 and 20 years, pay surpasses six figures; at this stage, the average professional scores around $137K. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $158K.
