I have a criminal lawyer right now, he's also a law professor in andover, massachusetts (also where my charges are). I pay him $200 hr and he's worth every penny. He's private practice so he charges what he wants.  I'm not rich by any means, but you get what you pay for. I bet he charges something different for each person and each case. I needed someone who knows the laws because I sure do not! I don't care what they say about you guys  (wink) I thank god for you! :)  this is my 1st offense, I'm a young female, ex got me in a WHOLE heap of trouble and I needed someone to dig me out of this huge hole. So far so good. He found some crazy mistakes that the cops made and its looking good for me. Hope this helps. Good luck becoming a lawyer. Some of us really are innocent! Haha plus girl lawyers are hot and we need more of them!

100-300/hr. But it also depends on experience and what an individual lawyer decides to charge his or her clients.

Much more than I could ever dream of. I've heard lots of different numbers, so I'm not entirely sure what to believe. I think it would vary depending on their experience and the line of work they exactly work in. My nephew is studying to become a lawyer. I should talk to him about it.

Lawyers  earn  a  lot  of  money  yearly.  In  fact  records  show  that  the  least  a  lawyer  can  get  for  signing  a  document  is  20,000.  Can  you  imagine  that?  Plus  imagine  how  much  the  person  would  have  to  pay  to  be  represented.  That  is  exactly  why  I  want  to  be  a  lawyer

Lawyers salaries range from $28 an hour and much more. It depends on what type of lawyer you are being that corporate lawyers make the most. It usually depends on how big your firm is and most associates in large firms start out making about 200,000 a year because they work 100 hour weeks. If you are a lawyer for people like immigrants and people like that then you will make much less. About 30,000 a year, So thats a big jump!!!!!

Whoever come up with $9.12 an hour has some real problems. McDonald employees make that I mean come on guys. Different lawyers make different amounts of money. Also, it depends on what state you live in as well for me I am wanting to be a criminal defense attorney. I know a lot of attorneys that start out START OUT making 150,000 a year. It takes a lot of school but its worth it in the long run. Good luck to yall and your future goals.

A lawyer in US makes $78,000 on an average. We have 8544 hours in a year. If we divide 78000 by 8544 we get $9.12 dollars an hour. The source of average salary is www.indeed.com

Hope it satisfies your question.
