Closing is the last step in a real estate transaction. Depending upon your state laws, you may or may not be required to have an Attorney represent you at the closing.
It’s important to understand that while other Attorneys may be present at the closing. For example, a lenders Attorney. They do not represent you, you can have your own legal representation and retain an Attorney to review, all contracts to represent you at the closing and to answer any questions you may have.
