Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Just to make sure we are all on the same page, you need to understand that the JA attorneys do not actually act as your attorney and cannot directly represent you or directly refer you to a local attorney.
I can answer your questions regarding your situation and point you in the direction of the type of attorney you should hire. If that is what you are looking for here, let me know and I'll respond. If not, let me know and I'll send you over to customer service for a refund.
I understand that you do not act as my attorney. If you can help and point me in the right direction or if I should just leave it alone.
The first thing we need to talk about is the "paper" that you signed.
Do you have a copy of this with you?
Also, do you know what kind of entity it is exactly (is it a C-Corp, an LLC, or a Limited Partnership)?
Finally, on what grounds are they saying that you owe them $30K?
Yes I have a copy and it is a LLC. He says this based on the paper that was signed and that I am responsible for the percentage of bills and tax liability
If you signed a document which made you a member of the LLC subject to an operating agreement that would require that all members are liable for portions of the LLC's debts personally, then you may have some problems.
I very much doubt that you can be held personally liable for this though, as your liability for LLCs are generally limited to the value of your membership. So, this sounds like a claim that you need to fight.
I would recommend contacting a local business attorney (or even one from Atlanta) to read through the documents that you signed. The kind of attorney you want is a "business law attorney". You can find these by simply googling "gwinnett county georgia business law attorneys" and this will pull up several law firms which should be able to help you.
If you have the documents with you, you can scan them in and attach them to your response here and I will look at them and tell you my thoughts on whether or not you are liable.
Thank your for help. I will contact a local attorney
