After working at Dun & Bradstreet for one year before starting college, Ms. Calvert went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts in history and English, magna cum laude, from Huntingdon College, Montgomery, Alabama, in 1953.  Receiving a fellowship to Tulane University, in New Orleans, she worked with Dr. William C.

Her husband’s career change resulted in their returning to Alabama after starting a family.  After completing her thesis on “Establishment of Territorial Government in Orleans Territory, 1803-1804,” and passing her oral exams for her M.A. in 1958, Ms. Calvert served as a history instructor at Spring Hill College, Mobile, Alabama, the University of Alabama, Huntsville Branch, and the College of the Mainland in Texas City after moving to Texas as a result of her husband’s position with a space-related NASA contractor.  While working full-time as a legal assistant at Able & Coleman in Houston, Ms. Calvert began night classes at South Texas College of Law in 1976, and in 1977, she received the American Jurisprudence Award in Constitutional Law from Bancroft-Whitney Publications.  Ms. Calvert was awarded a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from South Texas College of Law in 1979.

Progressing in her career trajectory, Ms. Calvert served as an associate at Able, Barrow & Able Law Offices from 1979 to 1985. She joined Able & Able as an associate in 1985.   She then became a partner in the new firm of Able & Calvert, P.C., until 1990, allowing her to spearhead the Calvert Law Offices, P.C., as president in 1991. For the past 27 years, she has handled a variety of family law cases and has also excelled as a researcher and author. Today, Ms. Calvert is admitted to practice in the State of Texas, as well as before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court.  Her affiliations have included the American Bar Association, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Daughters of the American Revolution, American Civil Liberties Union, Texas Association to End the Death Penalty,  The Innocence Project, National Museum of the American Indian, and Habitat for Humanity.  To attest to her legacy, Ms. Calvert can be found in the 63rd edition of Who’s Who in America, the fifth edition of Who’s Who in American Law and the 15th edition of Who’s Who of American Women.
