You don't need a lawyer to execute a codicil (or a will). However, having an attorney prepare these documents is recommended so that the proper formalities of execution are performed to ensure that the will/codicil is valid. If you want to execute these yourself, make sure that you are fully aware of all of NY's requirements for proper will execution.
