Joseph L. Wilson
Attorney, Fisher & Phillips, LLP

Perfect mate: Someone who is ambitious, sweet, in shape, pretty, smart, has a relationship with God and who likes children
I am complimented most often on: My smile
The gutsiest thing I’ve ever done for love: When my last relationship was on the rocks, I drove from St. Louis all the way to Atlanta to try to meet up with my girlfriend at the time and work it out.
Deal-breakers: Bad breath, stained or crooked teeth and people who are uptight
Biggest turn-ons: A pretty smile, dimples and a woman who carries herself with class and confidence
Longest relationship: Two and a half years
Ideal date: Go to a nice restaurant and have some wine and a good conversation
Hobbies: Playing basketball, hanging out with my friends, working out and traveling
Favorite restaurants: Houston’s, California Pizza Kitchen and STK
Favorite sports team: Atlanta Braves
Most proud pro moment: Law school graduation—I have never been more proud and happy than when I walked across the stage and got my J.D.
You know you’re in love when: You constantly put that other person’s feelings and best interests before your own and you would rather be in pain than to see that other person hurting
Celebrity crushes: Paula Patton, Halle Berry and Porsha Stewart
Something people would never guess about you: I am naturally a pretty shy and quiet person, until you get to know me.
When I want to feel sexy, I… go get a haircut.
Who inspires you? I have two big inspirations: the first being my father, who I respect so much. The second would be Johnnie Cochran—he inspired me to be a lawyer.
My greatest ambition in life: Simply follow my destiny and do what is planned for my life
I can’t get enough of: Godiva chocolate
Signature drink: Cîroc coconut with pineapple juice
The key to my heart is: A woman who has a relationship with God and who has the ability to put others before herself; someone who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside
