Lawyers are older than most American workers, on average, according to the U. S. Department of State. Not surprisingly, New York tops the list with 9.3 attorneys per 1,000 residents.
California is not second on the list; it has 4.3 attorneys per 1000 residents, just slightly more than the national average. Where is the population of lawyers growing fastest? It's not in the biggest states. Topping the list is North Carolina, where the number of active attorneys grew by 21% over the past decade, followed by Georgia and Texas (both at 18%) and Utah (at 17%). Maryland reported an unusually large growth of attorneys over the past decade because the state changed the way it informed residents about attorneys, not necessarily because it experienced great growth.
Ten states reported losing attorneys in the past decade, led by Alabama (-15%), Alaska (-12%) and Ohio (-8%). The first female lawyer in the United States was Margaret Brent, in 1648 in Maryland. The ABA created the Margaret Brent Award in 1991 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of women lawyers. The increase has been slow but steady.
Seen year after year, the change is almost imperceptible. But seen over decades, it's easier to see and it's accelerating. In 1993, when the NALP began tracking the race and ethnicity of law firm partners, 2.55% of all partners were attorneys of color. Since then, the number has increased every year.
The diversity of law firms varies dramatically across the country. At one extreme, 30% of all associate law firms in Miami are attorneys of color, the highest percentage in the country. At the other extreme, only 3% of partners in Pittsburgh are attorneys of color, the lowest percentage in the country. The size of the city seems to have no correlation with the diversity of law firms.
For example, while Los Angeles, Houston, San Diego, and San Jose are among the 10 largest cities in the U. S., Philadelphia, the sixth largest city in the country, performs poorly in terms of law firm diversity. Only 7% of all law firm partners in Philadelphia are attorneys of color. The number of openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) lawyers in U.
law firms continues to grow slowly, according to an annual survey by the National Bar Placement Association. There are no reliable statistics available on the total number of attorneys who identify as LGBTQ in the general legal profession. The survey revealed that 865 lawyers claim to have disabilities in 641 law offices across the country. That represents 1.22% of the 70,980 lawyers in those offices.
There are no reliable statistics on the total number of lawyers with disabilities in the entire legal profession. The office measures employment and salaries for more than 800 occupations in more than 380 metropolitan areas. One thing the office measures is the demand for each occupancy in each metropolitan area. It's called a “location quotient”, a unique number that shows the demand for an occupation in an area compared to that of the country as a whole.
For example, Albany, New York; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Montgomery, Alabama; Hartford, Connecticut; and Sacramento, California; are among the top 20 metropolitan areas in the country with highest demand for lawyers. However, not all state capitals have high location quotients for attorneys. In fact, twelve state capitals are below national average in demand for lawyers including cities as large as Phoenix (Arizona), Honolulu (Hawaii), Columbus (Ohio) and Nashville (Tennessee).

So what is the average age of female lawyers practicing in Capitol Heights? Unfortunately there is no reliable data available on this topic as it is difficult to track due to privacy laws and regulations surrounding attorney information.
However we can look at some other data points to get a better understanding of female lawyer demographics across Maryland and beyond. According to a report from The National Association for Law Placement (NALP), women make up approximately 33% of all practicing lawyers across America today - a figure that has been steadily increasing since 1993 when NALP began tracking gender demographics within law firms. In terms of age distribution among female lawyers across America today - according to a survey conducted by The American Bar Association - approximately 40% are between ages 25-34 years old; 30% between 35-44 years old; 20% between 45-54 years old; 8% between 55-64 years old; and 2% 65 years or older. In terms of location specific data - there is no reliable data available on female lawyer demographics specifically within Capitol Heights or even within Maryland as a whole - however we can look at some other data points such as average salary figures for female lawyers practicing within Maryland which may give us some insight into age distribution. According to a report from The Bureau Of Labor Statistics - female lawyers practicing within Maryland earn an average salary of $125k per year - which is slightly higher than both national ($122k) and state ($118k) averages. In conclusion - while there is no reliable data available on the average age of female lawyers practicing within Capitol Heights or even within Maryland as a whole - we can look at some other data points such as gender demographics across America today as well as average salary figures for female lawyers practicing within Maryland which may give us some insight into age distribution.
