do you mean expect?

Most of the time the raise you get isn't a negotiation. You accept it or there's the door

Market? For high COL markets you should be making minimum $75K as an S1.

There's always the old adage: "You only get one shot to negotiate a salary during your PA career." Don't waste it on staff or senior years. Manager = maybe. Senior manager = ideal.

Current salary is $60k. The market range for experienced staff is $53k to $60k in my market.

Sorry what is COL?

Tax line

Cost of living. Really hard to give you hard numbers without knowing the market. If $60K is the high end for experienced staff, I'd say around $70K is a reasonable expectation for senior. That would be about a 15% raise.

12-15% would probably be about average.

Thanks for the feedback. I know it's hard not knowing the market and details. But, I'm always open to moving firms if I'm not getting top market. I need every dollar I can at this point and I am a top performer, I have brought in two decent clients, and get along well with everyone at the firm. So, I'm not just going to let my career come as someone decides it for me.

Then go out and test the waters. I think you may be surprised at the results. A couple of thoughts: 1) you're an associate. You don't have much leverage at this level because your experience is limited. 2) going to a new firm is like starting over. Building new relationships, navigating new office politics, etc... probably not worth it for just a couple thousand dollars difference. It's doubtful the difference in salary would be much more than this since the pay ranges for associates are all quite similar across the firms.
