A: If you are residing in California, then you should be fine with just a California licensed attorney. Each of the membership interests of your LLCs will be assets that will be held in the name of your trust. Although it may be preferable to find an attorney licensed in both states in case novel issues arise out of your ownership of the two LLCs.
