No, you would normally only pay for your own attorney who would be representing you in the transaction.

Hi mendezsonia126@gmail.com

What they said.

Generally you would only pay for your own Lawyer, unless you agree to pay for the other sides attorney for some reason. This sometimes happens in Seller's markets and/or purchases from the Developer of a property or a purchase from a co-op sponsor.
