Why is that? I've read that paralegals can make as high as $140K in NYC.
And then there are lawyers making about $35-40K in many small law firms. What's the reasoning?
Because many biglaw paralegals bill out at $300/hr+
Tons of small law lawyers charge a lot less than that.
If an hour of your work makes the firm a boatload of cash, they will pay you well.
