Most teachers start out at thirty grand. Ten years ago I started out at thirty-five, but only because I had two masters degrees. Now, ten years later, I'm up to fifty-nine. Is this really more than a typical Utica attorney?

Woooo! You must make enough to be "President of the Uticans!"

The fact of the matter is that qualified, impassioned attorneys make far more than that. This is astonishing that the average Utican doesn't know this. Wow.

Those who CAN... DO. Those who can't... become liberal teachers. Your results and unfunded pensions speak volumes. Enjoy the "big Utica Bux"!

A good or lucky lawyer will make far more than a teacher. I know one that got a settlement for his client, and his cut was over 500k. That was just one week of work.

Legal Aid lawyers are notoriously badly paid. Combine that with Utica's shitty economy and overall impoverished state, and you see why lawyers around here don't make any money. Add on top of that the corrupt legal education system, the glut of attorneys, and the dreadful legal jobs market, and you see why low level lawyers are paid shit.
It's a simple matter of supply and demand; there are more lawyers here per capita then the area can support. That is why so any specialize in showing seniors how to rip off the government, in other words we taxpayers.

Your problem might be the location of your IP. When you make any bar in the US and can't pull down 150k you're from UT or the Pro Bono Kid.

And if you are smart you'll set up shop like me and rim your tongue off at a $1.00 a pop. I can buy or sell anybody with my business.

Funny because lawyers are in higher demand in the utican region than teachers. I wouldn't look twice at an applicants resume if it mentions utica. Truth.
