Press Release

Legal Assistant Today Announces 14th Annual Salary Survey Results

March 7, 2006 (Costa Mesa, Calif.) — The editors of Legal Assistant Today are pleased to announce that the results of the 14th Annual Salary Survey are available in the March/April 2006 issue. In this year’s feature article, “Taking Off,” freelance writer Rod Hughes reports that, after years of modest growth, the national average salary for paralegals climbed 11 percent to $51,078 in 2005.  

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

  • National and regional breakdowns for 2005 salaries, bonuses and raises

  • A comparison of national and regional salary averages from 2000 to 2005

  • Additional regional salary breakdowns by education and experience

  • National statistics about billing requirements, benefits, job environment, certification and hiring requirements, exempt vs. nonexempt status, employment outlook and more.

 LAT’s Salary Survey is mailed to a random sampling of paralegal subscribers across the nation every year, asking more than 50 questions about their salaries, employee benefits and job environments. The results are then tabulated and presented in detail in our annual Salary Survey results. 

Also in this issue, we offer our first-ever Freelance Survey results in “Flying Solo.” In 2005, based on reader requests, we conducted an online survey of freelance paralegals on a range of topics, from salaries and billing practices to technology and marketing. The results showcase the many considerations that go into starting and running a freelance paralegal business. Along with the results, you will not want to miss freelance paralegal Liz Miller’s tips on how to persuade attorneys to use freelancers.  

LAT subscribers receive this annual issue in their subscription package. For subscription information, call (800) 394-2626 or e-mail [email protected]. Or to purchase only the March/April 2006 issue featuring the Salary Survey results, contact Robin Mechem at (714) 755-5457.
