    It is a hearing at DMV to see if you improperly refused taking a chemical test. If you lose the hearing your license can be revoked. It might be worth consulting with an attorney.

    You can try to appeal if you are still within the statutory time limits. As for the issues, an attorney would need much more information in order to answer your question. Good luck.

    You should certainly have an attorney for DWI cases as the ramifications could be serious. You should not be posting facts about any criminal case on the internet as it will serve no useful purpose. I suggest consulting with a local criminal defense attorney and saving any conversation for a face to face meeting. If you are unable to afford counsel, it is possible the court will appoint one to represent you.

    It is possible. That does not mean that the testimony will be extremely helpful. That would depend on numerous factors.

    The use of statements would be determined shortly before trial. One should not speak to federal law enforcement without counsel as lying to a federal law enforcement official is a felony. If you cannot afford an attorney then the agents will help you get representation. Good luck.
