One size truly does not fit all.
IF you are comfortable and have the time, get the LLC yourself. Use legal zoom, or call your state, most states have the documents online. Staples and office depot, have generic papers that ARE NOT the same documents used from state to state. Legal Zoom will get you the documents that you need for your state. BUT they will also try to sell you upgraded packages.
I guess I'm somewhat lost on the use of the attorney for the LLC, other than making you feel comfortable or for convenience.
What advice and expertise can an attorney offer you on setting up an LLC for a BBQ business? LLC's are not rocket science. A small business course on business set up will walk you through the same steps and offer you for advice and expertise.
