State Bar conducting attorney income, hourly rates survey

Starting today through April 14, the State Bar of Texas is conducting the 2013 Texas Attorney Survey to provide attorneys with information on the economics of the practice of law.

By participating, Texas attorneys can help ensure they have the most current economic information available. Also, participants will be entered in a drawing to win one of two new iPad Airs.

Reports generated from the survey provide statewide and regional information on current economic trends. The reports feature detailed breakdowns of income and hourly rates by firm size, years of experience, practice area, occupation, race/ethnicity, sex, and metropolitan area. 

The survey also includes questions regarding pro bono. This data will be used to highlight how Texas attorneys are doing their part to help low-income residents.

The survey is anonymous, and the process is secure. Email addresses will be used for the iPad Air drawing and will then be deleted and not associated with attorneys’ responses.

To participate, please click here. The deadline to complete the survey is 5 p.m. Monday, April 14.

Results will be published on the Department of Research and Analysis website.
