Received a job offer. Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on a concern I had about it. It's an entry level position, and I don't have much experience. The billables are 2040 a year. For billable hours in civil litigation and insurance defense, is 2040 hours for a 1st year associate on the high end in this field for a small or midsize firm? It seems like most attorneys I know have minimum requirements of around 1800. The compensation is around 80k a year.

It’s too high for billables and too low for compensation. Seriously a rip off. Are they hiring slaves?

As a first year you should be starting at around 1800 hours. And around 80k for just over 2000 hours is too low. I get the firm is small but negotiate in the six figure range. I practice in ID and in general we are hurting for attorneys, so use that need to your benefit.

It’s a good question. At least where I practice salaries are all over the place, so attorneys are bouncing all over to get better deals. Many are going into plaintiff work, starting their own, etc. And with COVID, our practice never stopped and cases are getting pushed to trial more and more to help with the court back log. I think there’s a lot of burnout as a result.

Look at it like this. Good paralegals are at least 60k. And paralegals save our butts more than you know. But they didn’t have to do law school or lose years of their lives studying for the bar. That extra work you did is worth way more than 20k a year.
