Are You Being Waited on, Ma'am?

When working in a public establishment, what is a good way to ask:

Are you being waited on, ma’am?
¿Le están atendiendo, señorita?
¿La están atendiendo, señorita?
¿Le atienden, señorita?
¿La atienden, señorita?

Is anyone waiting on you, ma’am?
¿Alguien le está atendiendo, señorita?
¿Alguien la está atendiendo, señorita?
¿Alguien le atiende, señorita?
¿Alguien la atiende, señorita?

Are you being helped, ma’am?
¿Está siendo ayudado, señorita?

Is anyone helping you, ma’am?
¿Alguien la está ayudando, señorita?

Any corrections and suggestions as to how to convey the above is appreciated.

Any explanations as to whether "le" or "la" is used with the verb "atender" when addressing a female is also appreciated, even if that is the wrong verb to use in the examples I have written above.
