Hello! I am an attorney in DC/MD.
Salaries for entry-level attorneys ranges from 30k-180k depending on where you are located. Salary depends on where you are working - i.e. government, big law firm, small law firm, non-profit, etc.
Whatever career you choose, make sure it is a career that you love, regardless of the salary!
Generally speaking, attorneys at big law firms (i.e. the 100 biggest firms in the country) make the most money, with starting salaries over $200,000. But the vast majority of lawyers do not work at big law firms. No matter what you decide to do, going to a good law school can significantly improve your chances of getting the type of job you want.
