What is Functional Lawyer?
Functional Lawyer™ is a legal document and education system designed to fill the gaps in legal coverage for integrative and functional medicine providers.
Most functional medicine providers experience one of three things:
- They contract with an attorney who doesn’t have experience with functional medicine.
- They overpay for basic education and contracts.
- They “borrow” documents and education from friends and colleagues.
We created Functional Lawyer to provide trusted legal protection and education at an economical investment without compromising on quality, accuracy, or currentness.

The 5 Essential Documents That Every Functional Medicine Practice Must Have
How does Functional Lawyer work?
You’ll be relieved to find our process easy to navigate and customized to your unique needs.
There are three steps to the process:
- Legal Health AssessmentTM
- Functional Lawyer VIP Membership
- Document Library
Legal Health Assessment
The first step is our proprietary Legal Health Assessment. This is a 45-minute appointment in which a 360 analysis of the legal health of your practice is conducted by Scott.
Scott brings his legal background as well as his experience running the finances and best business practices for his wife’s successful functional medicine practice, to fully evaluate where you are, where you want to be and how to get there safely.
After this appointment, you will receive a fully written legal assessment with recommendations for your practice.
Many providers need not only foundational legal documents, but also regular guidance and education to safely protect their practice. The documents are tools, if you don’t know what they mean or how to use them properly, they will not protect you the way they are intended. For this reason, Scott developed a full education library with continued live support to best assist you and your individual needs.
The Membership is the best option for many for this reason.

Document Template Library
For more well-established practices, or those that are only trying to fill a specific acute need, the Document Template Library provides the opportunity to purchase individual or a handful of document templates a-la-carte. Each template can be downloaded immediately in MS Word format so you can easily customize it to fit your needs.
Each template comes with a line-by-line video walkthrough of the template so that explains some of the legal language in plain English, and draws your attention to the parts where you may want to make edits.
Is Functional Lawyer right or me?
Functional Lawyer is for MDs, DOs, DCs, NPs, and PAs in all 50 states that want a foundational legal system to protect their license, business and income.
Most of our clients say they "want to do things the right way." If that sounds like you, then you are in the right place.
Our providers fall within three main groups:
- New businesses that are just starting out, or that have recently started and recognize the need for strong legal foundations from the start;
- Established practices that pieced it together themselves, but know that their handiwork probably needs an overhaul from a real attorney source; or
- Practices that have been in business for a while, have good foundations, and have only one or two gaps to fill in order to shore up their legal compliance plan.
