Can an IL Business Attorney engage a client in California who wants to form an LLC in Delaware?

If I understand the question being asked, this would be a Professional Responsibility question.
A lawyer is legally only allowed to practice law in the jurisdiction to which they are licensed in. Assisting a client with paperwork is, by most accounts, the practice of law. The attorney in question may be licensed in DE as well. There's also several exceptions and allowances for attorney's to handle transactions in other states, for certain reasons, which can get very complicated. But it wouldn't matter what type of business is formed. If the lawyer is licensed in DE, or meets one of the exceptions, they can. If not, then no.
