Types of law and their respective salaries?

Postby jgibbs444 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 6:36 pm

Can anyone help me with this bit of information?

I am looking to find each type of law and what their individual average, annual salaries are currently. If someone is aware of this information, or is able to direct me to a certain resource where I can find this information, that would be great.

Why post this twice? Also, this would vary so much as to not be worthwhile. There is huge variance in location, size of firm, and the exact portions of law that a firm practices.

Of course salaries will vary within the legal field--big hotshot corporate lawyers and personal injury lawyers will make more than public defenders--but at the end of the day everyone makes a good living. You should base your choice on what interests you and makes you happy, not what pays the most.

In that way, being a lawyer is just like being a doctor: sure, we're not all neurosurgeons, but is it so bad to be a primary care doc?! The money is still good, and you've got stability and respect within the community.
