If an attorney is hired to prepare the LLC, the flat fee varies- anywhere between $400-1500 is the most common. The price depends on the attorney's area of expertise (ie if all they do is LLCs they will generally charge more), where the attorney is located (rural area vs. city), the prestige of the firm, and whether the individual is a partner or an associate.

Some people will prepare all the forms and hire that attorney to review the forms to ensure that the forms are filled out properly and that the business is properly set up (making it, for example, more difficult to pierce the corporate veil).

Here is a list of forms and detailed instructions;
