. In any case, you're always better off with a lawyer who regularly practices in the courthouse where your case will be heard. That lawyer will know all the judges and the ADAs and will have a track record and a history of credibility with the court, which will make negotiations easier for him than with a outsider.
Also, though this is your first offense, and you're certainly right to be concerned, as a case itself, it's pretty garde variety. You're not going to need Perry Mason, and your worst case scenarios here (upgrading the weight, for example, or enormous fines) are not likely to come true.
The chances of a conditional discharge rather than probation are very good. You won't get the conditional discharge if you pay a fine. You won't get the fine if you are sentenced to a conditional discharge. With a disorderly conduct -- which doesn't give you a criminal record -- if you couldn't get the conditional discharge, it would still be worth it to have the fine but not the misdemeanor.
You will find community service very intrusive if you have a business. You'd be better off without it and I don't in general think that avoiding it will be a problem.
There is, before I forget, a mandatory state surcharge (court costs) which would be assessed. It's now $175 for a misdemeanor and $95 for a violation. There may also be small local court costs. You'd be given a date by which you had to come back to pay the surcharge.
