Joe grew up near the West Texas farming community of Ballinger, Texas. Raised by a veterinarian father and librarian mother, Joe spent many hours helping his father on emergency ranch calls and working on the family Boer goat farm. After high school Joe attended Texas A&M University, where he was a member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band. As a third generation Aggie, Joe continues to support his alma mater and can be found in College Station supporting the Aggies on most fall Saturdays.
After law school, Joe started his career working in-house for a small operator in Midland, but shortly thereafter he moved to San Antonio to begin working as a title examiner. Joe joined the firm in 2014 and became a shareholder in 2018. Joe’s practice is focused on oil and gas legal advising, with an emphasis on title examination.
