Ok. Perhaps my terminology is off. I'm looking for 125K and it seems like a lot of the mid-law firms I have targeted do in fact pay that.
Wow, show me these mid-size firms. They may pay 125K, but I am willing to bet they pay this to real hot shots from the tops of classes. In Philly and DC, I have heard of mid-size firms (around 25 to 100 attorneys) paying between 70 and 100K depending on experience, grades and standing etc...The average attorney in the US, based upon department of labor statistics, make 110K. I have only heard of BIGLAW firms paying 125K for new associates.
