Under the deal, expected to be approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, attorneys would receive a 6 percent pay raise starting August 2002. On top of that, base salaries will be “realigned” as much as 9.5 percent based on a market survey of public- and private-sector attorneys in Santa Clara. In August 2003, attorneys will receive between a 3.5 percent and 5.5 percent raise based on the Bay Area consumer price index. Once again, salaries will be realigned upward by as much as 9.5 percent, according to a market survey.
