Who Is Bob Massi?
Born in Pittsburgh in 1951, Robert A. Massi’s age was 67 when he passed away. Bob Massi had two brothers, Albert and James. He graduated from Mount Saint Mary’s University and St. Mary’s University School of Law.
Massi had to choose between studying to become a doctor or lawyer and said, “It was more like, do I want to go to medical school or law school? When you’re 21 years old and say, ‘If I want to be a doctor, it’s another 10 or 11 years. If I want to be a lawyer, I’ll be done in three years and start getting into action.’”
So, Massi went to law school.

He found out in the ‘70s that he was dyslexic and always thought of himself as an underdog. So, he most often represented people going through tough times or who have been involved in bad situations.
Massi lived in Las Vegas since 1974.
Bob Massi’s Legal Career
After completing his education, Massi worked as a law clerk in 1976. Then, in 1980, he started his solo practice, Robert A. Massi & Associates, which is now known as Massi & Massi. They handle cases on personal injury, wills, trusts, real estate and business law.
Massi chose to practice civil litigation over criminal law. He explained that he didn’t want to represent an individual who hurt someone or molested a child.
In one particular case he handled in the late ‘80s, a woman’s husband passed away at a nursing home in Las Vegas. It was definitely a sad case, because the man couldn’t talk in the time before his death.
He had multiple sclerosis and when Massi’s client would visit him, the sheets used to be tented. This is pretty normal in a nursing house, as sheets directly on the body can cause sweating.
One day, the client visited her husband at the home and noticed he was stressed out. So, she removed all the covers…and saw his body was covered with ulcers.
She went to many lawyers and finally found Massi. His firm took the nursing home to court and ended up getting a large settlement for her.
From there on, Massi handled a lot of cases against nursing homes.
All in all, Massi had more than 30 years of courtroom experience with more than 20 years as an on-camera legal analyst.
As a lawyer, Massi felt his biggest responsibility was to keep everybody’s emotions in check. He presented over 400 seminars on this and many other topics across the United States.
He was alternate judge for the Las Vegas City Municipal Court and is a member of the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association.
He even founded The Preventive Law Foundation, which aims to inform Las Vegas residents about the legal system.
As a legal analyst, Massi reported on the high-profile cases involving Scott Peterson, Michael Jackson, the “Unabomber,” O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Warren Jeffs, and Casey Anthony.
In 2007, Massi published the book, People Get Screwed All the Time: Protecting Yourself from Scams, Fraud, Identity Theft, Fine Print, and More.
Because of his celebrity status, most people assume that Massi was an expensive attorney. But the famed advocate refuted such hearsay and said, “…I’m affordable and easily accessible.”
