This post was originally written in 2008. Goodness, things have changed in 2019, and they have also stayed very much the same in spite of a thriving economy.
Let’s see where we are now with attorney salaries and, specifically, first-year starting salaries for new lawyers in the Baltimore area. Keep in mind so much of this is based on conjecture and rumor so you have to take it all with a few ounces of salt.
- Robert Half tells us that the average starting salary nationwide is $68,000. Baltimore gets a 3% location bump. So, roughly, this tells us that the average starting salary in Baltimore in 2018 was approximately $70,040.
