I have what may be an obvious question to someone else, but is puzzling me.
I have heard/read both here and elsewhere that you want to protect your name, credit, assets etc. This makes absolute sense to me in our time of frivolous lawsuits. Let's put aside any discussion for the moment about when it's right to set up LLC's, corp's, land trusts, etc and assume that those things are in place when they "should be".
My question is:
If I am the one running my business then I am the person calling on properties, showing up at closings, answering phone calls, asking for referrals, etc. How hard could it be for someone (esp. a lawyer) to figure out who's behind the veil? I want to make sure that I fully understand this part of the business. Thanks for any information that anyone can provide.
