Contact a local DUI attorney right away. I recommend the Head firm and the Ghosheh firm, both very capable and in your area. Sounds like this is not something to take on yourself. I use to prosecute DUIs and loved pro se representations. If you are truly invested in your case, an attorney can either settle this or do his best to keep it off your record depending on what the investigation turns up. Needless to say, an attorney will have access to investigative materials/people you will not.
If the D.A. has proceeded with the case, it will always be on your record unless you can get it dismissed and expunged. You need the assistance of counsel in this case. There may be technical defenses such as chain of custody issues involved with your urine test that would cause the evidence to be inadmissible. ONly a trained lawyer is going to recognize and be able to present these technical defenses. I am a former Cobb County prosecutor. Call me if I can be of assistance.
