My suggestion is that you hire a DUI attorney to resolve this matter. A DUI conviction could affect your chance of being hired for employment. Then you won't have any chance of H-1B.

It's always best to try to keep the DUI off your record, and the only way to give yourself that chance is with experienced DUI representation. Use this website to find a good DUI attorney in the area where the offense happened, then make some calls to find a good fit for you. Even if a pending DUI might delay your H1B, that's better than the possibility of having it denied altogether due to the DUI conviction.
