The lawyers who’ve seen their paychecks decline over the past year are starting to get worried.
We’re getting closer to a point where lawyers are paying their bills, and many of them are seeing their paydays shrink.
That’s because it’s no longer financially viable for them to make the big bucks they once did, according to a new report from The Lawyer Report.
Lawyers who have seen their salary decline by more than 10% in the past three years saw their pay drop by $11,000, on average.
While it’s still possible to get a job in the legal industry without taking on a huge salary, it’s now more difficult.
For one, a majority of the lawyers surveyed are now paying off their student loans.
(The median pay for law students is $63,500.)
A lot of them have to take on additional debt to pay for their training, and they can’t afford the expensive and sometimes difficult-to-understand private practice that some firms offer.
The average law firm’s salary is now $175,000.
It’s unclear how many of these lawyers are making a living off of their legal work.
The report found that the number of new lawyers graduating has dropped by 15% since 2011, and the number who are working at law firms is down nearly 30%.
The median salary for new law students has dropped from $125,000 to $90,000 in the last three years.
And while the number at the top of the pay scale has increased slightly, median pay hasn’t budged.
Median compensation for the top 10% of law firm executives has increased by more, from $140,000 on average to $130,000 last year.
That means the average salary for those 10% is more than double what it was in the middle of the recession, which was in full swing when the report was conducted.
That may not seem like a lot, but the difference between $140K and $120K is enough to make some lawyers cry.
Law firms don’t get paid well in the economy and have become the target of many of the lawsuits that have made the downturn so severe.
As a result, lawyers are taking on new debt to make ends meet.
The study also found that lawyers who have started taking on additional loans are less likely to be able to find new jobs and to have better salaries.
This means that while some law firms are getting a bit lucky, others are not.
As part of their job, some lawyers are now looking for new ways to supplement their income.
A few law firms have begun offering their own student loan programs that let students use their law school credit to pay off loans for tuition and living expenses.
This has brought some law school graduates out of poverty, but it also puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to obtaining a job.
Law school graduates who enroll in such a program will be eligible for some job-training programs that will help them gain employment.
But those programs may not be enough to compensate for the additional costs law schools face to provide their graduates with the right qualifications to be in the field.
One recent report found the average monthly income of law school graduate interns was $8,000 less than it was a year ago, but they were also not paid the same as law school grads who were working full-time.
Law grads are also now working fewer hours, which may mean that some of them can’t find jobs that pay well.
While the numbers of people who are seeking out law work may be dropping, the number seeking out work as a full- or part-time lawyer is on the rise.
This makes the situation much worse for the typical legal worker, as a survey of lawyers in March found that 57% of them said they were working a second job to make money.
And that’s just in the top 20% of lawyers.
The problem for law firms in particular is that they’re struggling to attract and retain attorneys to their offices.
A new survey from law school recruitment firm Adelmann, for instance, found that law school recruiters are struggling to keep up with demand for new attorneys.
“Law school recruitors have not yet received the full economic boost that they hoped for when they launched their recruiting efforts for the coming year,” the company wrote.
The survey also found a spike in hiring of lawyers to serve on jury duty, where a lot of people go to work.
But that’s not the only problem law firms face.
Law firm recruiters say that the rising cost of living in certain cities has hurt recruitment.
That is, hiring attorneys is still expensive, and most attorneys want to work in expensive cities.
That leads to the hiring of people from out of state, who are paying for lawyers that may not live in the area.
That also makes it harder for recruiters to find qualified candidates.
The number of lawyers who are not paying the legal fees they are owed has also increased dramatically.
A survey of attorneys in June found that only
