Of course there is more to consider than simple remuneration, such as the legal culture you will be working with, the type of people you will correspond with, the company mission – the actual living of making a living. Certainly that should be a consideration, an impression no bare chart can give you. Also, there is the tricky issue of difference of cost of living, with $160,000 in New York amounting to about $67,000 in Dallas.

Nevertheless, a quick visual survey of the Unites States sprawl, and how the big firms fit into it, can clue you in towards which direction to set your sails. When considering what first years and second years make, and what sort of billable hours they are expecting, you can get a fast impression of what firms are worth considering and why.
