Legal Assistant Today Announces 13th Annual Salary Survey Results

March 1, 2005 (Costa Mesa, Calif.) — The editors of Legal Assistant Today are proud to announce the results of the 13th Annual Salary Survey are available in the March/April 2005 issue. In this year’s feature article, “Peace of Mind” by Rod Hughes, legal assistants experienced continued salary growth in 2004, with a national average salary of $45,935 — an increase of $1,127 more than the average paralegal salary in 2003. The average raise also increased to $2,747, an increase of more than $300.

Featuring 14 pages of graphs, charts and information, this year’s survey results highlight:

  • National and regional breakdowns for 2004 salaries, bonuses and raises
  • A comparison of national and regional salary averages from 1999 to 2004
  • Additional regional salary breakdowns by education and experience
  • National statistics regarding billing requirements, benefits, job environment, certification and hiring requirements, exempt vs. nonexempt status, employment outlook and more.

LAT’s Salary Survey questionnaire is mailed to a random sampling of paralegal subscribers across the nation every year, asking more than 50 questions regarding their salary, employee benefits and job environment. The results are then tabulated and presented in our annual Salary Survey, which highlights national and regional breakdowns.

LAT subscribers receive this annual issue as a part of their subscription package. For subscription information, call (800) 394-2626 or e-mail [email protected]. Or to purchase only the March/April 2005 issue featuring the Salary Survey results, contact Robin Mechem at (714) 755-5450.
