Unfortunately, not this Grubman, but Grubman, Grubman & Curcio — a fictional law firm on The Sopranos. They expressed interest in hiring Meadow Soprano, daughter of New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano, as a first-year associate. Meadow’s fiancee, Patrick Parisi, already works at the firm.
The figure tossed around as a starting salary for Meadow was $170,000 (but only after senior partner Steven Grubman had a bit too much to drink). The prospect of their daughter earning six figures right out of law school elated Tony and Carmela Soprano, erasing their earlier disappointment over Meadow’s decision not to attend medical school.
An ATL reader wonders:
“What’s with Meadow starting at $170K? Does David Chase know something we don’t?”
