Starting associates at big U.S. firms often bill more than $200 an hour. But an experienced lawyer in India bills at $75 to $100 an hour, roughly the bottom rate for some U.S. paralegals.
ROTFL
NOTE the figures they quote are on the rate the law firms BILL the client.
60+ hour weeks for these professionals are the norm.

$200/hr x 60hr/week x 50 weeks = $600,000 billable time

Do you think "Starting associates" are hired at 1/2 that rate? 1/4 ??

The majority of my friends are attorneys, all young attorneys in big metro markets at big firms. About 6 of them are at big firms in the Tri-State area.

They've been on the job for 1-3 years now. They are paid between 40-70 hour while their firm bills many time that amount.

I like lawyers also, but haven't specialized in them.Good laugh & informative.
Also like the way most lawyers , in TN [any size market] do real estate work by the contract.
Young, mid-age or mature do it that way. Typicaly, not a large law firm.

Probably takes less than an hour,average contract closing fee maybe $200-300,some more[more out of county] some less .Typicaly with a good experienced REALTOR,we fill the sales contract.....
