    Julie Lewis, Clayton County schools’ general counsel: $247,554


    Earning nearly a quarter-million dollars, Julie Lewis ranked as Georgia’s best-paid staff attorney for a local school board in 2009, state auditor’s records show.

    Lewis pulled in $31,000 more than Atlanta Public Schools’ best-paid attorney (whose name was not disclosed) and $87,000 more than Jack Lance with Rockdale County schools.

      She must certainly know “somebody” – does she also have a staff?

      It is obviously cheaper for a school system to hire an in-house attorney than to contract with a firm based on this information. Attorney’s charge too much for too little results in my opinion in every scenerio.
      If she is in-house, hopefully she puts in a 40 hour week or more and is an expert in school law already instead of learning through on-the-job training.
      It is a shame that lawyers influence schools. Again it is the kids who are caught in the middle.
