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.
My experience with RMN agency involved my desire to relocate from New York to Atlanta. Our family was growing, and we had grown tired of the brutal commute, long winters and sky-high cost of living. A law school classmate who settled in Atlanta after graduation recommended that I contact Raj. After speaking with Raj and explaining my situation and requirements, he put me in contact with an excellent national law firm that had an immediate opening at its satellite office in Atlanta. After a couple of interviews, I was offered the job, and I was happy to accept. Raj's ability to listen to my needs and to pair me up with a firm that matched what I was looking for was excellent. He also provided valuable advice about the firm and its culture that helped me to successfully navigate the interview process and ultimately secure an offer. I would highly recommend Raj and his team to anyone who is looking to take your career in a new direction.
