I also have a JD and have been asked to take on roles/tasks of paralegal/associate. How do I turn that into a raise at my annual review without seeming greedy?

I would be upfront about it- you’re doing stuff beyond the legal assistant job description, and you have the qualifications to support it. To be honest, if it doesn’t work you may think about going somewhere else as a paralegal. We are going through a hiring phase and are pretty wary of hiring people with JDs unless they unequivocally say they aren’t interested in using their JDs in the future

Before seeing this info, I had asked my boss for a raise based on the success I've had over the past 8 years but have only gotten 4% bump per year. What can I reasonably ask/expect ? 20%? Do I mention the disparity if boss lowballs?
