Desiree’s Answer

Look on-line and you'll find many resources (e.g., https://crushthelsatexam.com/lawyer-salary/ ).

Several factors will impact salary: (1) type of law one practices; (2) the city where they practice (NYC attorneys often make more than say... Topeka attorneys); (3) the number of years they have been practicing (new, more junior attorneys make less than more experienced attorneys); and (4) how they practice law - big firm, small firm, corporate in-house (i.e., company lawyer), government. Certain types of government work may pay less, but qualify to help forgive student loans.

It's fair to say the more highly compensated the role, the more demanding it is on your time and personal life, too. Consider reading this, too: https://lawschooltoolbox.com/how-much-do-lawyers-make-the-truth-about-attorney-salaries/

Jennifer’s Answer

It depends on what type of law you practice, and where. Some lawyers have very high salaries but also must work very long hours. I think you should find something that you love to do, not something you think will make you a lot of money. Lawyers also have lots of debt from all that school! Good luck to you --

Thank you comment icon How much can someone earn is this profession depends on a lot of things like, Which stream you specialize in, Which stage of practice you are in, you experience and results of the cases that you solve and the cases that you are working on. My suggestion is to select the stream that you like , results will not be quick, if you select the stream of your interest you will enjoy what you do. All the best! Jyoti Beedi
