Let me try this reverse: As a professional; you can really only commit three types of errors or torts and further let's presume in each case that the error/tort committed exceeds the assets of the business entity:

1. You commit a professional error.
2. Your employee, subcontractor or business associate commits a professional error.
3. You commit a business tort.

An LLC or corporation will protect your personal assets after the assets of LLC/corp are exhausted in ALL cases; except where state statute says otherwise....
Correct B U T be sure you dot your i's and croiss the t's. There have been several cases where the "corporate shield" and the "llc shield" (if that's the proper term have been pierced and the shareholders, members etc were personally liable.
Have your atty spend a few minutes telling you haw he would "get you" if he were sueing you and how he would pierce the shield. Then make sure you don't make the mistakes.
