I am starting a Texas LLC, but since I also have a full-time day job, I don't want to be the registered agent so that if someone were to sue me I wouldn't have to risk being served at work. Are there any reputable companies or law firms I can hire to be my registered agent? What are the pros/cons of doing this?
As a starter, you could ask the law firm that you are engaging to form the LLC if one of its attorneys as the registered agent. In addition there are companies such as CT Corporation that handle the services and if you do a Google search you will find some other companies.
TONS of companies do this. You have to pay, but it is totally available. Do a search and find someone reputable.
There are many companies that provide the service and their fees will vary. The pros of using a company is that most of the time the address won't change and you will get any notices in a timely manner. The con is the cost that you have to pay, rather than doing it yourself. Speak with a business attorney about helping set up the LLC as well as serving as registered agent. Good luck to you.
