Does anyone have an idea of what the starting salary is for a technical specialist (Biology Ph.D.) in law firms (especially Boston area)?  Please assume no patent law experience and no patent bar exam.  Thanks for any input!  Smiley

seconded.  I'd be curious to hear about boston and new york.  Is there that much of a difference?

In the year 2004, I was told by a person who got Ph.D. in Mol Biol and got a job in a lawfirm in New York.  He was attending an evening law school.  His starting salary was $70K at that time.

I know from a friend that starts this year with a big NY law firm as Tech Advisor that he gets 80.000$ (+law school tuition).

If you have PhD and no patent experience, the current market starting compensation is 95k in salary, 25-30k in tuition, and low billable hours.    
 
If you have law degree, an undergrad degree, and no patent or legal experience, the starting salary is 135k and upto 40k bonus.
 
This is not a lab job and your work is not for "charity"...!  I hope, you guys won't sell your background cheap...??!!
