It is not a requirement that an attorney conduct a closing. However, since the cost of title insurance or an escrow does not increase when an attorney represents you at a closing, many buyers hire one to review the closing documents beforehand. While escrow and title insurance companies are generally reliable and efficient, their services are limited to conducting the closing and they cannot offer you legal advice.
