You do not need an attorney for the closing unless you would want them to go through the paperwork to make sure you are getting the loan you expect to get.
Congratulation on your refinance.

I don't thing you are required to have one in most cases. Personally though, I think I'd want one to help me sift through all the paperwork. I am not good at handling that sort of thing. I would like the help of someone who knows what they are doing.

Some people do, but most do not. Either way, read the papers carefully and ask lots of questions if you do not understand something. An attorney may catch a mistake that you would have missed.
