Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Legal Secretarys in New York, N.Y., more experience generally translates to higher pay. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $44K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $59K.
