My daughter got a OVI in Ohio however is a PA resident. Do I need a Ohio or PA attorney? Ohio took her PA license. Can they?

Do I need a criminal defense attorney for first time DUI?
I was recently charged with a DUI. It is my first offense and my BAC was 0.13. I honestly don't know if I need an attorney for this. I didn't get an attorney for the preliminary hearing and I don't qualify for the Public Defender (because I make TOO MUCH $$! Lol, that's funny if you knew how much I made!) At the preliminary hearing, officer and even the District Judge said that I should go to the DA's and file for ARD. I know that an attorney will cost me a bundle, and I would like to save the money if I can. What should I do?
You need an attorney!!!!!!!

I got an underage but was never breathalyzed. can I get out of it, or plead to a lesser charge so I can keep my license?
I got an underage at 12:30 p.m because I tried to take a cookie from Sheetz and got caught. I gave it back and was charged with theft but the officer said he could smell alcohol on me. I told him I was visiting my friend at Slippery Rock and that I was from Allegheny College and that I did not have a drink since 5 p.m. and the reason he could smell it was because there was some spilled on me because everyone was playing a game. He made me stand up and watch his finger as he went from side to side and I did not move my head or blink. I did not slur any words and that was not indicated on the citation. He said my eyes were blood shot but they always are and I could prove that if I went to court. He did not use a Breathalyzer on me and I had to walk home when he was done writing me up.

Can the police obtain a BAC without concent?
I was involed in a accident were i ran threw a stop sign and hit a house. I was then taken to the ER to have a CT scan, Xrays and stitches to my eye. The medical staff told me they need to draw labs CBC and CMP are the only labs that show on my discharge papers. I was never told they were doing a BAC. I was dsicharged and called a cab and went home. I was not arested or told i was being charged with DUI. Now 7 days latter I recieved papers in the mail charging me with DUI
It is likely the ER checked the BAC for diagnostic and potential treatment purposes regardless of what the police wanted.
