Skaddenfreude: Paralegal Salaries, Please

100 dollar bill Above the Law Above the Law law firm salary legal blog legal tabloid Above the Law.JPGTime for another Skaddenfreude request. Last time around, we requested data about the salaries of solo practitioners and small-firm lawyers. We reported the results here — and we’ll happily share more such info with you, if we receive a few more submissions.
We’ve noticed that, when we make Skaddenfreude requests, we tend not to receive submissions from the attorneys who are really raking in the dough. This disappoints us. It’s also a little counterintuitive, insofar as you might expect high-flying legal eagles to boast of their financial success. But maybe they don’t want to inspire envy.
Anyway, in the hope of achieving a higher response rate, this week we’ll on people who, despite earning perfectly good money, aren’t at the top of the earnings pyramid: paralegals.
If you’re a paralegal — whether for a big firm, small firm, the government, etc. — we’d love to learn how much you make (and how hard you work to earn it). If you’d be willing to share this data with us, please follow the submissions guidelines set forth here. For item (2), provide your undergraduate rather than law school graduation year. Per our standard procedure, we will “anonymize” your submission before publishing.
Thanks! We look forward to hearing from you.
