This article from Law.com is not for the weak of heart. It is titled "Mid-Level Associates: The Paycheck Report." The first sentence says "Finally, everyone's being paid like a New York lawyer." Wait...what? Everyone?
The article goes on to explain how New York associates' salaries are leveling out while the rest of the country's associates' salaries are rising. A survey of nearly 7,500 associate attorneys showed that the average salary has climbed to $185,000 for third-years, $210,000 for fourth-years and $230,000 for fifth-years.
Wow. Have a nice weekend!
