If I'm going to be a witness in a federal investigation, should I consult with an attorney?

Question Details: About 2 years ago. I was contacted by the FBI asking some basic questions about my employment at a former company where the owner and his partners were charged last year for health care fraud or kickbacks. Then last week the same FBI agent sent me an email asking if I knew an individual charged in the case. They told me that I could be asked to testify at trial and that could be a couple years away. Should I get a legal representation as a witness? Should I refer any additional questions to an attorney? I'm not really sure what I should do here.
