I believe most people who want to own and run their own business, can probably complete the steps to obtain a business license, register the LLC with the Washington Secretary of State, and obtain a federal tax identification number.
All of this can be done online. Here are the links:
State of Washington Business Licensing Service
Read the material presented and don't forget your city and specialty license.
Register the LLC with the Washington Secretary of State
Federal Tax ID Number
Where lawyers add value is in the drafting of the Operating Agreement between the LLC members, and I do not recommend that business founders draft these themselves or use free sample forms that they find online.
