One question is “Whether or not I need an attorney?” People call me about all types of matters and I do not recommend an attorney where it is a non-serious matter that doesn’t have severe consequences. But I would caution you on a DUI that you always need an attorney that knows how to handle your case. You would not consider performing surgery upon yourself, and the same thing is true with a DUI. You need an experienced individual who has an objective perspective leading you through this matter. You should definitely talk to an attorney to determine what the defenses are in your case and whether or not you make a decision to hire one will then at least be an informed decision.
