What Is A Staff Attorney
Harrison:[00:00:00] Are attorneys just contractors?
No, a staff attorney is not a contractor. They can be contractors, but a staff attorney is typically a title. And so attorneys are given the title of staff attorney and its what law firms call them internally.
A staff attorney is not the same as an associate. So sometimes they may call them managing associates or special associate, or they'll have all these kinds of different terms for them. But a staff attorney basically means your someone that's on the partnership track. You're not being held to the same standards in the long run and all that sort of thing. So that's kinda how that works.
A staff attorney is basically someone who's not an associate and they do pay them sometimes hourly, but more often than not these days, a staff attorney would be paid as salary.
