As a small business owner, husband, and father of five children, I understand what it takes to start, grow and maintain a business, and to plan for my family's future, and I use my knowledge and experience to help small businesses and families. Every business needs an attorney to help start and manage the details of the business, and every family needs an attorney to help them with their estate planning.  Tailored Legal seeks to serve just that purpose, and to do so for a reasonable fee, within a business or family budget.

Great advice, clear communicator, down to earth, ethical
I was referred to John by another one of his clients. I left him a voice message and he got back to me promptly. I was really impressed with John. He's a true professional who cares about his clients, talks in a language that's easy to understand, and gives advice that is in their best interest. I felt immediate trust in his advice and would definitely work with him again. Great guy!

Intelligent advice delivered at a reasonable rate
John advised me on establishing a new corporation, then took care of everything for a reasonable fee. I feel very comfortable and confident working with him. I know that everything is going to be taken care of correctly the first time and on-time. I appreciate working with someone I trust to have my and my new business' best interests in mind.

Knowledgeable, responsive and all around great guy to work with!
John is an incredibly articulate and knowledgeable attorney that has consulted me and my colleagues through numerous legal matters. I've felt like i'm working against the clock with other attorneys ive used in the past, but John always takes the time to listen to my needs and regularly goes above and beyond. I've never had any issues getting a hold of him and he very consistently delivers high quality work. I'd happily recommend John for any business or personal legal needs.

Knowledgeable San Diego Business Attorney
John sets time aside to make sure he is well informed on your specific industry that he will be providing legal advice and services for. He also puts focus on looking at the big picture of where your business stands legally and prioritizes your legal needs to handle the most important items first. Besides helping my start-up business with Incorporation, Agreements, Trademarking and advice he is also a good guy to just have a conversation with and learn from. His eagerness to go above and beyond to help with the constantly changing needs of a growing business is much appreciated as an owner of a company. I look forward to continued work with John as he helps secure the success of my business in the future by setting up a solid legal foundation to build on.

"I have known John Masnica for the past 6 years. We first met while clerking together at one of the county's most prestigious criminal defense firms. Now, John is in private practice and has his own firm, where he focuses on business law and estate planning. I recently came to use his skill and expertise in helping me start up my own private practice. His counsel and advice have been spot on and he would be a tremendous asset for anyone. I highly endorse John Masnica. He's a superb attorney and a fine human being as well."
