Setting Up LLCs

Setting up Louisiana LLCs

Business Law Attorney in Louisiana

A limited liability company (LLC) combines aspects of a traditional business partnership with a corporation, providing the company with both operational flexibility and a limit on the owners' liability.

In order to qualify as an LLC, the business can't feature more than two of a corporation's four core features:

  • Limited liability to the extent of its assets
  • Continuity of life
  • Centralized management
  • Free transferability of ownership interests

When setting up an LLC in Louisiana, you need to conduct a search to ensure that the name you are proposing hasn't already been taken. The name of your business must include "limited liability company," "LLC," or "LC." If the name is available, you then need to simultaneously file the "Articles of Organization" (states the purpose of the business and the duration of the LLC), the "Initial Report" (contains the contact information and lists everyone who signed the Articles of Organization), and the "Transmittal Information For All Business Filings." You can mail the documents along with the required fee, or you can submit them in person.

Filing an LLC can be the exciting start to your new business. However mistakes made during the filing can jeopardize your chances of a successful submission. I am available to provide the legal counsel you will need in multiple business matters, including helping you properly file your LLC.

  • How much money can I expect in a settlement?
    Each personal injury accident is different and the worth of the injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of injuries and disability. Insurance companies have specific calculations they use when assigning a monetary value to the pain and suffering resulting a personal injury causing accident. The firm will protect your right to compensation and pursue legal action if necessary.

    Before settling an insurance claim, contact The Layfield Law Firm, LLC to review your case. They can zealously protect your right to fair and full compensation, and your case will be given the focus and priority it deserves.

  • How will child support be calculated?
    Child support is calculated differently depending on the state one resides in, but the general factors taken into consideration by the court when calculating payments include:
    • the standard of living of the child prior to the divorce;
    • the ability to pay of the parent giving child support;
    • the specific needs of the child, including their food, clothing, and educational costs; and
    • the needs and income of the custodial parent (the parent with primary custody of the child).
  • How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?

    A personal injury accident is the result of the negligent, reckless or careless action of another. An accident that occurs from the use of a dangerous or defective product is an example of a personal injury accident. Another example is a drunk driver who causes a car collision with injuries or fatalities. In the case of negligence, the victim may be eligible for monetary compensation that can include lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Beau Layfield and The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can represent a client in court and negotiate with insurance companies to pursue the maximum possible compensation.

  • Do I need a lawyer in a personal injury claim?
    • Insurance company studies show that those who have legal representation in their case recover an average of 3.5 times more than those who try to get the issue resolved on their own. Insurance companies do not like to pay out large settlements, and frequently move fast with an offer, within days of a car accident or other serious injury accident. If you accept this early offer, it can be a terrible mistake; you may later require more medical treatment, or not recover in the expected amount of time, or could experience complications. I will carefully evaluate your injury case and ensure that we are pursuing every type of damage that could be claimed in your case. It is very important that you have legal counsel that will protect your right to fair compensation, and I will fight for fair treatment for you and your family. A personal injury lawyer is imperative if you suffered serious injuries. I am a Louisiana attorney that is interested in helping your resolve these issues.

  • Should I take a settlement offer?

    It is never a good idea to settle an insurance claim before speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney that has experience with injury accident cases. Insurance companies have tactics they use to deny claims, redirect fault, and withhold available compensation. An insurance claim can be a complicated process and insurance adjusters can be intimidating to accident victims. An insurance company may assert that the injuries are not as serious as claimed, and attempt to settle quickly for a low amount.
