Lawyer salary in Atlanta

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the hourly mean wage for lawyers in the Atlanta area is $66.05 per hour, or $137,390.00 annually. These numbers are not the bottom line, as some of our firms do pay market value salaries depending on where they are headquartered. For example, if a firm is headquartered in New York, it is very possible that they pay their lawyers who are located in Atlanta salaries that are based on New York’s cost of living. Keep in mind that this is just the mean salary, which is at the center of earnings. This does not factor in bonus pay and is based on 40 hour work weeks which is very rare in the attorney world.

Cost of living in Atlanta

In conjunction with salary, we must also talk about the cost of living in Atlanta in comparison to larger cities.The cost of living in Atlanta is far less expensive than in much larger cities, such as Los Angeles. According to CNN Money, housing in Atlanta is 53% less than it is in a city like Los Angeles, CA and 78% less than the housing in New York (Manhattan), NY. If you would like to compare the cost of living in your city to the cost of living in Atlanta, you can do so by comparing it using the CNN Money Cost of Living Calculator.

Testimonial from a Successfully Placed Candidate

"I highly recommend the RMN Agency! Raj and his team are very knowledgeable regarding the Atlanta legal market and provided me with important insights into each particular position. Because of the RMN Agency, I was able to make an educated determination as to whether a particular firm would be a good fit for me and whether my future colleagues were the type of people who would help me achieve my goals.

Raj knows about practically every Big Law partner in town and all the hottest practice areas. RMN's wealth of knowledge regarding the legal market, movers-and-shakers, and practice groups allowed them to give me effective interviewing advice and accurately describe the culture at each firm I was considering. Raj helped place me in a new position in less than one month from the first day I called him!

I tell all my friends to work with the RMN Agency."

As a lawyer who has been practicing for 17 years, I was very impressed with the quality of service and expertise of the legal industry. I would highly recommend RMN for your next search whether it is in house or private practice."
