    Not all the best paid lawyers work for law firms. Corporate law usually involves a whole legal department within a major company. But outside of that, defense lawyers can earn a lot because they can charge a lot per hour from desperate wealthy people.

    The ones who make the most money are involved in class action suits. Thousands of people suing and the lawyers take 30% off the top. Real estate lawyers make a fortune as well.
