About Us

Welcome to Tailored Legal

There’s a reason there are so many jokes about lawyers – because people don’t like them.  At Tailored Legal, we take that personally and we do something for our clients that other law firms can’t.  We provide an attorney that we know they’ll like.  That’s not all.  We provide an attorney our clients can understand and relate to…someone that earns their trust during their very first consultation and maintains it throughout the representation.

Have you ever met with your lawyer and felt like you’re racing against the clock?  Meanwhile, you don’t want to call because you’re afraid you’ll be nickeled and dimed to death?

You won’t feel that way at our firm because we don’t bill our clients that way…and we never will.

We understand “it depends” is not a fee quote.  That’s why we offer you certainty.  We strive to provide all of our services for a fixed fee so you’ll have peace of mind knowing the fee you pay isn’t going to change before your legal services are complete.  If the scope of a legal matter is too uncertain to offer a fixed fee, we’ll offer you a reasonable hourly rate, and we’ll make sure you are comfortable with our billing practices every step of the way.

We know these aren’t novel concepts — they are common business practices.  It’s just that somewhere along the line, lawyers decided they were immune to the demands of the marketplace.  Not us.  We want to exceed our clients’ expectations.  We want to stay ahead of the competition.  We want to provide our services efficiently and affordably, and we want to do so with a professional, approachable,  and understandable lawyer, who your business and your family actually likes.

Give us a chance to represent your business or your family and you’ll see the difference we are talking about.  That’s our promise.

John Masnica is President and founder of Tailored Legal.  He formed the law firm to deliver legal services to San Diego’s business owners and families in a different way.  John recognized that San Diego’s small business owners and families are in need of quality legal services delivered by an attorney they can understand, relate to, and trust, and for a reasonable price within their business and family budgets.  John strives to help San Diego’s businesses and families plan for the future by using legal tools to start and operate businesses, protect assets, and plan estates.

I can’t imagine leaving my family unprotected, it’s too important. I started Tailored Legal to ensure that every business and family is given the opportunity to purchase affordable legal services customized to their needs. Nobody likes dealing with the uncertainty of legal fees or with a lawyer they can’t relate to or trust. Every business and family is different. Every business and family deserves tailored legal services through an attorney they understand, relate to, and trust.

– John Masnica, Founder

John lives in North County with his wife, Kelly, their son Jack, and their two daughters Frances and Georgia.  Together, they enjoy spending time with their families, watching and playing sports and enjoying all of the forms of recreation that America’s Finest City has to offer.  John’s favorite hobby is cooking and he loves to spend the weekends honing his craft.

John loves San Diego.  Now, through Tailored Legal, he cherishes the opportunity to serve San Diego families and small businesses, using legal services tailored to each of their individual needs, to help them protect what they have built and to secure their future.


I truly appreciate that all services are provided on a fixed fee basis, because my clients and I know the exact cost before moving forward…
John is there to advise me, my business and my family every step of the way…
