Better question: salary for a first year in Los Angeles that doesn’t do billable hours? 🤔

Yeah, that’s gonna depend heavily on the size of the firm and practice area…

Was wondering what the range in salary is for a first year associate in a defense firm working in LA. Was trying to look online but the range is huge.

That range is likely accurate. You’re probably talking anywhere from $60K on the low end up to $200K in BigLaw. You’re not going to find the perfect answer on this one unless you have more specifics.

Does higher vault ranking (v10-30 compared to v80-100) open more doors for corporate in-house opportunities for a senior associate? If chambers practice area rankings and expected billable hours are similar and they offer the same DPW pay scale, does it matter less? Is it better to stay at/lateral to a firm where you might be able last longer to learn the necessary skills? Any personal anecdote or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
