Perhaps one of the most prestigious legal titles that one may hold is that of Judge. In order to become a Judge one needs to, among other things, have an advanced education, a good professional reputation and plenty of political support. But how much do Judges make and who is the highest paid Judge?
One might think that a NYS Supreme Court Judge would be among the highest paid, but they average approximately $140,000 per year. Certainly, it is reasonable to think that a US Supreme Court Justice is the highest paid, as they work in the highest court in the land. However, even a US Supreme Court Justice does not hold claim to the highest salary, as he or she averages approximately $210,000 per year.
