know a guy who graduated from Tulane law school 2 years ago with tons of student loans and he was worried about getting a job, period. Seems Louisiana is saturated with attorneys already. He did get a job but I don’t think he is making that much.

Why not move from Louisiana?
Tulane law has got a good name, right?

aren't most first year attorneys just paralegals with a fancy title?

Give or take 10k here where I work.

But then we're a huge corporate law firm.

ETA: And as a new associate, you're going to be putting in the hours and earn every cent.

Those in Big law are only making about $45-50 an hour if you broke it down

My dad went to law school when I was a kid and then he started in big law in Houston. It was a disaster of a work/life. He got out quick and transferred to Phelps. That was still a lot of hours but at least manageable

$55,000 on the MS Coast. Got a $1000 bonus here and there. I had no kids or really any bills other than the basics. The Coast is cheap too. Was a fun time.

I’ve since left that firm and now make about tree fiddy. Still have no kids and any bills, really.

guys, new lawyers that have the 6 figures at larger law firms is to bill 60-70 hours a week. If thats how people want to live, fantastic. imo, its not worth it. its a dead end.

When we hire, my small insurance law firm in NOLA area pays a salary of about $50,000 to $55,000 for a just out of law school associate of average academic distinction. But hours are very manageable and good opportunity for advancement in responsibility, client development and salary. Bonus first year will likely range from $3,000 to $5,000.

Ouch. Regret. I need to go back and finish my PPL. I quit thinking I was just going to go play around with light sport.

not all flying jobs are like that, now is the perfect storm for being a qualified pilot, huge demand, pilot pool drying up, oil prices low, airlines making money hand over fist, it's getting near the end for me but I've had an awesome career

ETA: first year guys start at $115k if they don’t turn a wheel

If they start their own practice, they only need a few clients to make bank.

Yeah I made a little over $60k my first year working in a small practice with a family member. Considering the relatively low hours I put in, relatively low stress level, lack of drama of having to deal with partners and bosses breathing down my neck, lack of tedious law firm politics, etc., I'd say it was a pretty good trade-off versus making 6-figures in a big firm and getting worked to the bone and having to deal with all of that stuff I mentioned.
