I would definitely get a lawyer. Sometimes there was no probable cause to arrest, sometimes improper warnings were given before a breath test was given or refused, sometimes evidence is destroyed, sometimes breath test machine has been improperly maintained, sometimes the officer did not perform the field tests properly. Especially a first timer you don't want to just plead out. Let an experienced DUI attorney review it. I,as well as many other attorneys in Illinois could handle it.
