Free Legal Consultation*
For new clients, a legal assistant or other staff member in our firm will intake your case information. If additional information is required to determine if we can assist you with your case, we may offer a free consultation by an attorney to gather more information. A free consultation typically does not include legal advice, is offered only in our sole and absolute discretion, and does not mean that you have retained our firm as legal counsel. Only a written document provided to you by our firm describing our representation and executed by a managing attorney at our firm will establish an agreement by our firm to provide you legal services.

Unlimited Liability: The Dangers of Operating as a Sole Proprietor

A Sole Proprietorship is a type of business entity with a single individual owner whereby there is no legal distinction between the owner of the Sole Proprietorship and the entity, meaning that the owner is personally liable for all debts and liabilities of the company. If you operate your Sole Proprietorship under a name other than your legal name then you must register the entity's Assumed Name with the appropriate Circuit Court's Office of the Clerk where your business is located. For example, in Virginia, if your business is located in Fairfax County, you would file your Fictitious Trade Name with the Clerk located at the Fairfax County Circuit Court.
