She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a B.A. in 1972 and got her law degree from St. Mary's University in 1980. She had the distinction of scoring the highest score on the Texas Bar Exam in the summer of 1981 and has been practicing law ever since. She has had a solo practice since 1985.

Massanari 202 F. Supp. 2nd .577 (W.D.Tex. 2002) and Grossweiler v. Barnhart, 2003 WL 22454928 (W.D.Tex. 2003), 91 Soc.Sec.Rep.Serv. 571.
