My condolence on the loss of your father. You do not provide enough information for a good answer. If there is no real estate, all the bank accounts had a Pay On Death provision, all insurance had a beneficiary, he was not owed any money and all three agree then no attorney or probate action will be needed (probably). If all three agree there is no need for each to have an attorney. If he was due money, refund on pre-paid insurance, return of deposits, etc. it will probably be necessary to do some type of estate administration to receive that money. If he owned real estate an estate administration will likely be required.
