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 salaries. At career start, salaries are typically $78K, which quickly surpasses six figures to $113K after five to 10 years. Compensation is $133K after 10 to 20 years. Salaries tend to grow less rapidly after achieving 20 years of experience, with more senior Los Angeles Lawyers earning an average of $156K per year. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about one-fifth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10 percent. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work—of those who took the survey, more than half land within it.
