Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
I am a licensed attorney and will do my best to provide you an honest and accurate answer to your important legal question.
My goal is to make your experience here highly satisfactory. Toward that end, please keep a few details in mind during our interaction:
I am a lousy mind reader. If you do not supply information to me, I do not know it. Please, give me the needed details to work with so I can provide you with the best possible service. Also, if you use the RELIST or BLOCK features, our discussion ends and I may no longer be able to assist. Please, just write back to me, directly, and talk to me.
Also, while I make every effort to work in a timely fashion, answering legal questions is not an instantaneous process. I am required to conduct research, interact with multiple customers simultaneously and sometimes take a break. Also, there may be times when I have to sign off for the night or to attend to other obligations. Rest assured, however, I will get back to you.
If you have a new legal question, the terms of this site ask that you post it in a separate thread. In other words, please be fair and reasonable. You can direct any future questions to my attention. Just go to my Profile Page, type in the text box "ask Your Question", click the hyperlink that says "15 minutes", and use the drop down menu to select 12 hours.
Please remember that many times even attorneys disagree with the law. But, we cannot change it. The answer I give you is based on my years of legal education and professional practice. It may well not be what you were hoping to hear. I will be upfront and direct. I will not mislead you, misstate the law to suit your hopes, or agree just to meet your expectations.
Lastly, please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done. Clicking "FEEDBACK" to leave your positive comments is always greatly appreciated. Information provided is informational and not legal advice. I am not your attorney. No attorney-client relationship exists between us. Consult legal counsel in your jurisdiction.

Hello and thanks for choosing Just Answer®:
Thanks for your patience in writing back and awaiting the formulation of my answer!
QUESTION: "...I would like to get an attorney to review and make any suggestions."
ANSWER: First of all, please allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate you and wish you every success in your endeavors! I commend you for being prudent and proactive by seeking a review. Your idea of having each customer sign a copy is right on point. Definitely follow through with that as well as posting on your web site and on the wall. There is a legal presumption (valid in Texas specifically) that if a warning was provided, it was read, when it comes to product liability cases. Having signed proof of that fact makes your position all the more strong. Now, as to specific suggestions, frankly I have very few as you have done an outstanding job of drafting everything. For your consideration, I offer these recommendations: (1) switch the order of third and fourth bullet points "Service" and the third "Warning" so the three "Warning" sections appear together as a group to stress the importance and priority of adhering thereto; (2) review fifth bullet point from "All customers will be advised..." to "All customers are hereby advised and placed on notice..."; (3) fifth bullets point onward could be grouped under a general "Disclaimers and Release from Liability" heading -- likewise for placing the earlier ones under an "Important Warnings" heading; and (4) the last statement "Prices are subject..." could be bullet-pointed for uniformity of appearance.
That is about it...as I say, you have already very nicely addressed the main points.
