Professional LLCs are created to perform a professional service. A “professional service” is defined as any type of personal service that requires that the person providing the service obtain a license, registration, or other legal authorization, prior to rendering that service. This includes the personal services rendered by an architect, attorney, certified public account, dentist, doctor, veterinarian, nurse, or insurance agent.
