Talk to a lawyer and see if they think the case may be worth more, and if so, how much more. The increased amount needs to cover the lawyer's fees and expenses for you to break even. You might also consider paying a lawyer by the hour to try and increase the amount without litigation. If you didn't lose any work, incur any medical expense, or suffer any lasting after-effects, it's hard to see a lawyer making this case pay on a contingent fee basis. Good luck.
On its face, yes. The question then becomes whether it can be waived, whether both parties are willing to do so, and whether or not the lawyers are also willing to take that risk. The answers to those questions are both case-specific, and involve individual judgment calls beyond the scope of any answer here.
Since a felony is by definition an offense one can be sent to prison for, jail wouldn't be the worst outcome. Probation is usually the preferred disposition for someone with no criminal history, but jail can be imposed as a condition of your probation. Depending upon your age, you may be eligible for expunction upon successful completion. Do not go to court without a lawyer. If you can't afford one, go see the public defender as soon as possible. Good luck.
There is a lot of law, both cases and statutes, that you would need to know to have a chance at pursuing a successful stop motion, and no one can give you the benefit of three years of law school, not to mention years of experience, in a web post. The real question you need to ask yourself is can you afford not to have a lawyer.
A challenge to the existence of probable cause for the arrest needs to be raised by pre-trial suppression motion. It is not a trial issue. If someone has filed such a challenge, then the discrepancies between the report and the video can be used to challenge the officer's credibility. It can be used this way at trial as well, but I'm not sure anything on the video is going to contradict or directly call into question a breath or blood test revealing a prohibited alcohol concentration.

Unless the case involved injury to another, or you had a minor passenger in your vehicle, a first offense is not criminal, and does not carry jail as a possible penalty. However, a BAC of .15 or higher will trigger a mandatory ignition interlock requirement that applies to all vehicles that have your name associated with the registration or title. A lawyer can be of assistance even if you do not intend to contest the case through jury trial. Keep calling lawyers until you find one that is a fit...
No. A third offense enhanced by the presence of a child in the vehicle is a felony. Not only is there a mandatory minimum jail sentence that applies, but prison is also a possibility. Getting yourself immediately into treatment will help mitigate your sentence, but you need to get yourself a lawyer.
