For a small time ID third year out in a one firm town? Sure. Miami? You should be double that.

Lol there’s tons of partners in ID with 20 plus years who don’t clear $180k in HCOL cities, this is an uninformed take

How are you even alive at that in Miami? I’m pulling 110k doing mostly non-business immigration in MN where my cost of living is half of yours. Also a third year. I have a buddy doing insurance defense in the same area whose making same as me + bonuses. I wouldn’t do anything in Miami for less than 150k, and 180-200k is realistically what I’d need before I started feeling financially secure

For sure want to make more than 120, but an out of ID is invaluable. Hopefully I can negotiate

I would maybe consider working for the government if you’re actually thinking about this.

I don’t know if all insurance defense areas are created equal. If you’re practicing property / commercial insurance, then yes - that’s very low even for a 1st year in Miami.

Following for the name drop

90K for a 3rd year in ID is absolutely too low in todays market. You should be at least at 110K if not 115K with some firms. Many ID firms are offering 100-105K for first year associates. I speak with new attorneys everyday, get offers weekly and keep track of this stuff. Feel free to hit me up if still looking and I’ll share more on the number and billable requirements at most ID firms.

I have an offer for the same comp, love the people and would be max working 60 hours but only when it’s super busy but normally 40-50 hours; earning potential in 1-2 would probably be 150-175k. Staying in would help getting to FIRE but feel like it’s not worth it. Thoughts?
