I may have to participate in a PA ARD program but I live in potomac maryland. Is there a reciprocal program in maryland?
While at Penn State an officer entered my apartment and shut off my stereo. Not knowing he was an officer, I asked if I could help him. He turned on me quickly and we pushed each other.

Does it matter if I have a $1000 attorney or a $2500 one for a first time dui. BAC .11
I have been talking to a few attorneys. The general consensus is that I will get a pbj. In this case is a more expensive attorney ($2500) better than one who charges $1000.

Could I be liable for medical bills if someone gets hurt at my vacation cabin while they were drunk?
I am contemplating allowing my daughter and some of her friends use our vacation cabin but I am concerned that if they are drinking heavily and someone gets hurt I could be held liable. We co-own the cabin with another family.
