This is especially true when it comes to attorney salaries and law firm income levels. In fact, in 2017 alone, almost $5 billion was spent on legal services by consumers outside of the U.S., which represents 12 percent growth from 2015! That figure doesn’t even include spending by international firms or their subsidiaries that may be outside of the United States. The amount will only continue to grow as we examine other metrics such as:

Number of lawyers employed: According to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment among lawyers and judges rose 2% between 2016 and 2017 while employment in general — including health care — fell 1%. If you do some simple arithmetic with those numbers it becomes clear that there were about 542K fewer lawyers working in America than before Trump took office (and 10%) less than at this point last year (2016). However, if you look at the BLS data for attorneys specifically who also work an additional full-time job then you get a much different picture; total persons employed grew 8% over this period while lawyer jobs actually decreased 0%. As I mentioned above these figures don’t tell us anything about people practicing law part time or through temporary/contract labor agencies…but they do provide insights into how many new licenses go into effect each
