    Yes I would highly recommend consulting with an attorney. Only attorneys who specialize in DUI can really help you so stay away from the general practioners.

    Keep in mind that the average cost to fight a DUI is $10,000 which usually includes attorney fees, increased insurance, etc.... However not fighting a DUI and having it on your record could cost much more as it would make finding employment much more difficult.

    Yes, you will definitely need a lawyer. DUI is a serious offense. You cannot get through this alone without the help of someone that is knowledgeable and experienced. Find a lawyer that is specialising DUI laws in your place and seek for initial free case consultation.
