About Joe Masiuk

As a partner in the law firm of Flood and Masiuk, LLP, Joseph Masiuk shares his wife’s enthusiasm for, and commitment to, a practice which provides people of all ages and walks of life with thoughtful and comprehensive solutions in estate planning.

Prior to joining his wife in private practice, Mr. Masiuk practiced law in the public sector as an Assistant Regional Attorney for the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare. His practice at HEW involved Social Security as well as Medicare and Medicaid policy and litigation. From 1981 to 1985 he served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Department of Justice in Philadelphia, where his counsel to the Federal Bureau of Investigation was recognized in September, 1985

Mr. Masiuk is a Member of the Bars of the Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the United States Courts of Appeal for the Third and Fourth Circuits; and the United States District Courts for New Jersey and the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania. He has been practicing law since 1976.


Mr. Masiuk attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in literature. Next, he attended the University of Maryland School of Law, where he was awarded a Juris Doctor degree in 1976.


Masiuk’s civic involvement has included membership in the Rotary Club of Feasterville, where he served as President in 1989-1990 and District Governor’s Representative in 1990-1991; and the Lower Southampton Township Fourth of July Parade Committee.

  • Heidi Rai Stewart

    I endorse Mr. Masiuk and have listed that endorsement under Estate Planning because it is the most encompassing of the choices given. Over the years I have read Mr. Masiuk's answers to many questions on AVVO and have found him to be highly skilled in the areas of Elder Law, Probate, Guardianship and many other areas that can be condensed under the general caption of Estate Planning. I highly recommend Mr. Masiuk to any person seeking an attorney with exceptional technical skills as well as a deep and abiding understanding of the emotional issues that prevail in these areas of the practice of law.
