If no one is contesting a will, do you need an attorney to probate it?

The Will has no legal effect until a Court admits it to probate (proving). A lawyer is required. Please remember that without a Court proceeding, it is not known whether the Will is valid or whether there is indeed "no one left to contest it" and creditors will have difficulty submitting claims to the executor.
