Recent PLLC questions

My wife recently received her Cosmetologist License from

My wife recently received her Cosmetologist License from California's Department of Consumer Affairs / Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. I've read on LegalZoom that "if you are required to be licensed to practice your business in your state, you most likely need to form a Professional LLC." Is the above statement accurate? If not, why not? Can a cosmetologist licensed in California form an LLC to rent a booth to offer barbering services? Or does it need to be a PLLC?

I am civil engineer and sometimes doing remote consulting on

i am civil engineer and sometimes doing remote consulting on the side, such as making construction schedules to construction firms. i did not establish a firm for this. i get checks to my name to my address and that is it. so far I did little but i plan to do more. is any type of business registration needed for this? for website i use my name last name dot com.i mean, i am practically a sole proprietor right ? but do i need to establish and register a sole proprietorship for it, or is it ok like this? both federal and state and local level i ask. there is no physical work, they just send me drawings and i make construction schedules and quantity calculations in my home and send them back the result that's about it. for construction schedules or quantity calculations you do not need an engineering license, because i am not doing any design work, though i have the license in another state.

I live in Montana. I am a licensed clinical social worker

I live in Montana. I am a licensed clinical social worker and I run my private practice as a PLLC. My husband is a computer engineer. We want to form a company that will create neurofeedback games and apps, interactive educational software, and virtual reality software. Our prospective business partner is a fine artist. As such, we are not providing direct medical or clinical services, and my role in the company is not to provide any direct clinical services to anyone. My role is to demonstrate how the software should be created in order to be of the highest value to the end-users, which would be clinicians and their clients. The company that makes the neurofeedback headset we will be programming for does not advertise the headset as a medical device. The software and apps are therapeutic in nature, but since I'm not providing direct therapeutic service, it seems to me that the best business model for us is a member managed LLC. Is this correct, or do we need to form a PLLC? Thank you!

I have an ongoing lawsuit and I own the business property it

Hello, I have an ongoing lawsuit and I own the business property it happened on. The business is incorporated under my name with a "PLLC". In a statement in one of their claims that my lawsuit is not valid, they state, "their damages are not damages that belong to the plaintiff."I would like to know:1. Does this comment by the utility co have a leg to stand on & if so,2. How do I go about handling this? OR3. Do I even need to address this comment that the "damages are not damages that belong to the plaintiff." ?

I would like to open a company that basically sells t-shirts

HelloI would like to open a company that basically sells t-shirts and polo shirts online. I currently sell in the middle east region in Dubai, and would like to start selling in the US. My questions are1) Which state should I register the company? I will basically sell nationwide, but the location of the goods will be shipped from Delaware or Michigan.2) I need to know how to register a trademark as these shirts have a logo and a brand name that I would like to protect. Should I establish a company and then register the trademark or vice versa?3) I work as a physician and I already have a PLLC that I work under, should I use the same company or establish another company for selling those shirts?4) If I Sell shirts online, how do I pay sales tax to the states?Thank you
