Do I need a will?
99.9% of the people I see do need a will. The alternative is state law intestacy which may not yield the results you want. Use of a will allows you to direct what happens when you die to your property. You may also express wishes in there that are not legally binding on the court or better instructive to the court or to your family. I believe that it also saves money in the long run to have a will over intestate succession if you do go to probate because of savings of cost on the surety bond which is usually waived if you have a will.
