Legal & Business Consultation

Association attorneys and other professional staff are only a phone call away. Members rely on the association for consultation not only on legal matters but also general business operations and policies.

MALA has a legal services plan through which members can call an association attorney for legal consultation. The most common types of inquiries arise from providers’ day to day challenges with a broad range of complex matters such as employment laws, health and safety standards, contractual obligations, licensing rules, marketing and much more. 

The legal and business consultation is included in the membership dues. When a matter cannot be appropriately handled by an association staff person, the association has a network of attorneys and other professionals to whom they can refer the member for more specific consultation or private legal counsel.

For more information about the scope and limitations of the legal services plan, please call 1-800-482-0118.
