Real Estate Lawyers


Incomes generally increase as the lawyer gains experience and becomes better known in the field. The beginning lawyer in solo practice may barely make ends meet for the first few years. The National Association for Law Placement reports that first-year associate lawyers earned median first-year base salaries of $155,000 in 2019. This was an increase of 14.8 percent from 2017. Salaries ranged from $98,750 at firms with less than 50 lawyers to $180,000 at firms with more than 700 lawyers.
