Family Law: A Lucrative Field

Becoming a lawyer is a dream for many college students, but some are often deterred from pursuing family law for many reasons. Some students aren't sure that the emotional toll of dealing with cases of divorce and family violence is worth the income, while others are afraid to put themselves through so many years of expensive schooling. However, being a family lawyer is one of the more lucrative fields a person can get into, especially in this economy.

Even when the economy and job market is struggling, there will always be a need and demand for lawyers of all types. Therefore, becoming an attorney is always worth going through the schooling, despite the fact that this might not be true for other positions, especially those in the fields of arts and humanities.

Furthermore, while it is indeed not a job for the faint of heart, it's also a very rewarding one. For every case of hostile divorce, there's also a case of adoption to be dealt with, which always sends lawyers home at the end of the day with a feeling of satisfaction.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in May of 2008, the median annual income of lawyers was $110,590. Even mid-level lawyers will earn between $75,000 and $163,000 per year – this is not to mention that hardworking lawyers like Marshall Davis Brown can easily make a big name for themselves in the field and earn even more.

Of course, it always depends on the city in which a lawyer practices, the types of clients they bring in (which is also contingent on the lawyer's reputation in the field), and how many cases the lawyer is willing to take on. Like many industries, the field of law is one that rewards the hardest workers.

It's also important to keep in mind the fact that a lawyer's salary is often correlated with his or her experience. The more years spent in the field, the more a lawyer will make.

There are many factors that go into determining what a family lawyer will make, but for the most part, it's a more stable and well-paying industry than most jobs that require degrees.
