2 DBAs under 1 LLC. Do 1st DBA have protection from creditors of 2nd DBA even if separate actg, bank a/c etc.? ie. can creditor of 1st dba sue 2nd dba bcs under same LLC

I just filed to form Tom LLC.   My new online business will be tom.com.   I am setting up 2nd different online business named joe.com.   I want to make them 2 different DBAs.   Can I get 2 different EINs for DBAs or only 1 for LLC?  If only 1 EIN, do I get protection from creditors for DBAs individually.   ie  If I operate DBAs independently with separate accounting, bank account etc,   will creditor pursuing one DBA can also pursue other DBA just because both are under 1 LLC?  If I cannot protect one DBA from the creditors of other, I want to form  2 LLCs.

You are asking for a legal opinion, not a tax question.  Suggest you obtain competent legal guidance.
