We're Looking for a Different Breed.

Are you driven and creative? Active in the client industries you serve? Passionate about delivering uncompromising legal service? Making a lateral move to Breazeale, Sachse & Wilson may be the right move for you.

With attorneys and strategic partners across three Louisiana offices, a highly skilled and well-organized support staff, and a leading-edge legal research and information management system, BSW is one of the largest law firms in Louisiana and among the larger firms in the South. Every client, from Fortune 500 companies to one-person startups, gets our best. And we maintain the highest peer rating, given by Martindale-Hubbell.

Join our team and you'll work with some of the most respected, knowledgeable attorneys in their practice specialties. We employ a team approach to service each of our practice areas, and we strive to become trusted partners with each of our clients, from one-person start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.

But our penchant for involvement doesn't end after work.

Year after year, our firm roster reads like a “Who's Who?” of community and business organization presidents, directors, and officers. Lending their leadership skills to such diverse interests as the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, the Council for a Better Louisiana, the Louisiana Committee of 100 Black Men, and the Pennington Biomedical Research Foundation, our attorneys have also served as appointed and elected government officials, as well as officers and directors in the American, Louisiana, and Baton Rouge Bar Associations.

The firm is equally committed to balancing the professional and personal lives of each of our lawyers. That’s why we seek associates with superior academic credentials and diverse personal backgrounds - women and men who are interested in achieving professional and personal success. We want those who are adept at providing innovative, effective, and timely legal counsel to clients, while also attending to the well being of their families, communities and the legal profession.

Compensation and Benefits

Our compensation and benefits are among the highest for the legal communities in which we practice. Associate benefit include life, medical, dental, and disability insurance; a 401 (k) tax-deferred savings plan; and reimbursement of bar examination fees, bar review course fees, certain bar association membership fees, and the cost of attendance at continuing legal education programs. We also provide training in legal writing and presentation skills, as well as internal/external continuing education and regular firm/departmental lunches and discussion forums.

Invaluable Experience Starts Here

There’s no substitute for hands-on experience - especially in a firm as complex and diverse as Breazeale, Sachse & Wilson. Every year, we recruit standout first- and second-year law students to join our Summer Associates Program, and we interview seniors interested in becoming full-time associates with the firm upon graduation. Join us and see for yourself why the BSW experience is as intense and rewarding as you're likely to find.

Summer Associates Program

Offered to first and second year law students, our Summer Program is comprised of two six-week sessions. Because many of the Firm’s new associates are graduates of our Summer Program, these programs are designed to introduce summer clerks to the various aspects of the practice of law. Students participate in case law analysis and technical writing tasks, as well as in strategy sessions, depositions and hearings. Each student is assigned two attorneys to act as mentors to provide guidance, assistance and feedback throughout their summer session. Under the close supervision of partners and senior associates, summer clerks receive a well-balanced workload, which is intended to reflect what they will experience as first year associates in the firm. Clerks are also invited to attend various social events and luncheons allowing them to become acquainted with attorneys in the firm.
