You really need to speak to an attorney to get the best possible advice for your specific situation. There are ways to prove you have an ownership interest in the LLC. Even in the absence of an operating agreement, Pennsylvania law has a statutory scheme pertaining to the management of an LLC. It is possible to dissolve an LLC.
