I worked at a BK/debt collection mill (with foreclosure department) in Seattle where paralegals made around $15-18 per hour. So, expect a lower range of a paralegal pay if you are a law clerk there. Young attys with 1-4 years of experience made around 45-55K a year. I think these types of firms really suck! Nobody knows your name, large turn over, overloaded with cases. But it is my personal opinion which comes from my personal experience. It may be different for you.
Thanks. Is it entirely inappropriate to ask the interviewer what starting attorney salary is, at a law clerk interview? I already have another route I was planning on taking (Be a PD then do private criminal defense), and if this is going to pay me the same as I would make as a PD, I don't think I would do this.
Even if it paid 10-20k more a year, why would you go into a field you're not interested in?
