While at Baylor, Joe received his calling to become a lawyer and enrolled in the Baylor University School of Law. Baylor Law School has a reputation for being the "boot camp" of law schools because of its rigorous nationally ranked trial advocacy program in which Joe competed and excelled in mock trials.
