When looking for a firm to call your own, there is more to consider than how much money you’ll be taking home. Certainly there is the culture, the work environment, the company mission, the atmosphere – in other words the taste, texture, the actual life lived in making a living. And even if you are looking for the "bottom line" in terms of remuneration, there is also the cost of living to consider. $160,000 income in New York amounts to $67,000 in Dallas, so too simplistic a glance at salaries could deceive you.
A Chart of the Top Paying Law Firms of 2015

Nevertheless, this chart, listing the top paying law firms of 2015, based on 2013 figures, may clue you in on where you should be looking to work.

Of course, any green JD straddled with six figures of debt would be eager to work for any of these fine establishments, but with $160,000 as a Biglaw average, it pays to consider who is offering more, how the second year compares to the first and so forth.

For instance Bickel & Brewer paying $185,000 to first years is a big deal. Ditto Boies Schiller & Flexner at $174,000, and Desmaris LLP ranging from $160,000 to $180,000.

As far as atmosphere and so forth, keep in mind that Fortune has often chosen four firms in particular as part of their top 100: Alston & Bird were at No. 24 in 2012, Bingham McCutchen at No. 30, Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz at No. 54, and Perkins Coie at No. 58.
