Q: What kind of lawyer can a massage therapist go to to create a liability waiver for free information sessions?

Sessions would include education on stretches, self-massage, and self-care. These free sessions are part of advertisement/marketing efforts to build a massage therapy business. Class would take place in libraries, churches, stores, any place that would like to partner with the licensed massage therapist to educate the community for free on massage and wellness. Would partners also need to create a waiver for potential participants to sign? Thank you.

A: Your best bet is a business law attorney. A general practitioner who handles civil contracts should have familiarity with those issues as well.

A: It's possible that within those business law attorneys, you could even find practitioners who are experienced with standard forms that arise in the health care field, including waivers, releases, HIPAA authorizations, etc.
