Do You Need An Attorney To Create A LLC?

On Behalf of | Feb 3, 2022 | Firm News, Real Estate |

Many of our clients are looking to form a LLC; whether it’s for a new business venture, holding real estate, or co-owning assets with other members. One of the first questions we get many times is “Do I need any attorney to do this?” The short answer is no, you do not need an attorney to create an LLC. But what are you putting at risk?

If the LLC is not formed correctly, you’re certainly risking the assets of the LLC itself. But even worse? You’re risking your personal assets. The whole purpose of creating your LLC was to protect your assets from the LLC. But if it’s not formed correctly, then it’s almost as if you didn’t even have the LLC in the first place.

We generally charge $995 to create and file your LLC, and the state of Washington charges $200 for the filing fee (prices subject to change). And while this can be a lot for some people, the risk of losing your LLC assets or personal assets far exceeds the cost to ensure it is done correctly.
