The geography of a region, city, or state continues to have a significant impact on salary differences. This year's report includes analyses of 23 individual cities, as well as additional states and regions not covered by those 23 cities. Based on these analyses, law firm salaries by city range from $115,000 to $190,000. In some of the largest markets, $190,000 salaries were still unusual. The Northeast was the region with the highest median first-year associate base salary ($175,000), followed by the South and West, both at $170,000. The Midwest had the lowest salaries ($130,000).
