Welcome to reality.
I mean, in my hometown of Des Moines, the midsize (10-25) ID firms pay first year associates $60-$70k, and those associates work <50 hours a week unless a big case is coming up. So... Your bullshit isn't true everywhere.
Yeah, my experience as well on west coast. Mid size ID starts at 70-80k, hours are 40-50 per week (it's not that hard to bill close to 1:1 per hour at the office in this field). There's not a lot of legal research in ID, but again, it's a great legal job when you consider 50%+ are not getting legal jobs period.
I am very happy with my ID job.
