Do lawyers get paid more than accountants?
answer the question and tell me why. I want to become a lawyer by the way not because of the money but because i am curious to know. I looked at the starting salaries and the median for 1yr or less for an attorney is like 60k where as an accountant its a bit less, anyway, just answer the question, thanks.
Additional Details
Working for little or no money? So what your saying is when I start out working for a firm I'm gonna get paid, like a mexican UH no.

First realize that a huge percentage of people who get their JD never actually are employed as lawyers. So out of 100 people who graduate less than 30 will ever become actual lawyers and many will end up working for little or no money.

Most CEOs/CFOs started out as public accountants.

Good luck

Question is too vague ! "Some" lawyers get paid more than " Some" accountants, it depends how good you are, what level you reach, what firm you are with ! I would say it's easier for accountants to earn more as they have more job opportunities and can supplement income doing 'private' work for individuals or small companies. So, ......... the Oscar goes to ...... drum roll ....... Accountants !!

Yes. Lawyers get paid more than accountants unless you don't get any jobs.

Depends on the lawyer and the accountant. My accountant is able to by a brand new car every year, takes European vactions, and has a home that is three times the size of mine. She has a large accounting business that concentrates on small to medium companies, in addition to the officers of those companies.

The American Bar Association did a survey last year and found that the average salary of an attorney is $40,000 even after the attorney has been working for 5 years. This extensive survey seems to be alot more accurate.
