Across the state of Texas, firms are reporting healthy increases in 2007 salaries and billing rates, according to Texas Lawyer‘s annual Salary & Billing Survey. Firms of all sizes — from fewer than 30 lawyers to more than 100 — awarded across-the-board salary increases to lawyers, nonlawyer administrators and nonlawyer support staff.

The firms responding to the survey also have slightly higher expectations than last year when it comes to billable hours, with an average 2.2 percent increase for equity partners to 36.6 hours per week from 35.8 hours; 0.8 percent increase for nonequity partners to 37.9 hours per week from 37.6 hours; 3.5 percent increase for associates to 38.6 hours per week from 37.3 hours; and 4.6 percent increase for legal assistants to 31.6 hours per week from 30.2 hours.
