Lawyers in the fields of intellectual property, corporate law, and tax earn an average annual salary of over $100,000.



In the US, a lawyer is considered a profession with high investment, stressful work but in return is prestigious, always in the top of high-paying jobs.

According to 2018 data from the US Department of Labor, the average annual income of a lawyer is $120,910, just below a doctor, manager, or general manager with $200,000 or more. The average annual salary of American workers is about 30,000-40,000 USD.

The five highest paying law professions in the US include:

Intellectual property lawyer: The job of an intellectual property lawyer is to advise clients in the establishment and protection of intellectual property. Not only legal knowledge, intellectual property lawyers must have background knowledge in related fields such as engineering or biology.

The median annual salary of an intellectual property lawyer is $135,000, depending on the industry, the size of the employer's business, years of experience, and education level.

Enterprise legal counsel: Lawyers will advise businesses on many issues such as preparing to carry out legal procedures, drafting contracts, consulting on legal rights and obligations on tax.

The average annual salary is nearly 105,000 USD, depending on personal knowledge and experience. Lawyers who have solid expertise and are attached to the business will have a higher level.

Tax Attorney: This is a person representing a company, organization or individual to work with local, state, or federal tax authorities. Most of the work is consulting on tax issues, monitoring changes in the law and their impact on clients.

The average annual salary is 100,550 USD, while the starting salary will range from 55,000-83,000 USD.

Labor law attorneys: The job of the law is to ensure an equal relationship between employers and employees. The average annual salary is more than 86,000 USD.

Criminal defense attorneys: Representing clients and presenting arguments to judges, prosecutors, and juries, the average attorney's salary is more than $80,000. However, for a court-appointed public defender, the salary is only $60,000 per year.

However, the above figures are for reference only because the actual income level depends on the reputation of the training law school, the client or the employer, the working location...
