I'm not a patent attorney, but worked cheek by jowl with them and worked as attorney in patent litigation for many years.  
My thoughts are:  
1) Make sure your notes on your invention are detailed and dated.  
2) Don't make a public disclosure of it (that starts a clock running on your time to file an application).  
3) Get a few books on inventions and patents from your public library to quickly familiarize yourself with what patents are and the process.  
4) Then get a recommendation for a patent attorney and see if your idea seems like one worth checking out for possible patent protection.
