My husband died recently without a will, do I have to hire an attorney to probate the estate?

Question Details:

My husband died recently with no will. Do I have to hire an attorney to do a succession even though there are no children that are contesting the fact that I am being left everything? He had an old truck that is in only his name and I want to sell it. What are the laws concerning selling or disposing of property in the deceased name?
