Yes, a salaried attorney may be able to sue his firm or company for unpaid overtime, unless otherwise exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Typically a salaried attorney who earns more than $100,000 per year are generally ineligible to sue and considered exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
However, lower paid lawyers are usually subject to the FLSA’s “professional exemption” which covers anyone who performs work “requiring advanced knowledge, defined as work which is predominately intellectual in character and which includes work requiring the consistent exercise of judgment or discretion.”
