Last month I did a quick survey of DS salaries

They fall in a range between £20 – 40K roughly equivalent to a reasonably experienced Classroom teacher or a Ward sister.

Our most popular tweet ever runs as follows:

“Over 17 years I have met 1,000s of Legal Aid lawyers, this is my job. I am yet to meet a Fat Cat lawyer”
