This sounds like a violation of the Maryland Wage, Payment and Collection law. It is illegal for employers to make you clock in and work without being paid. Speak to an employment attorney.See question

If you were injured, contact an attorney. You will need to file a claim under the Maryland Tort Claims Act and there is a specific way to do it as well as a time deadline. The failure to file a proper and timely claim will be your claim.See question

I agree that having the landlord move you is your best option. Absent that, there are no good options. If the lease does not prohibit smoking, they cannot force her to move. I do not believe that the clause that states the apartment must be safe and free from hazards would be enough.
Perhaps you can have a polite conversation with your neighbor and ask them to refrain from smoking in their apartment.See question

The failure to read your rights under Miranda will only keep out statements made by you while in police custody. It will not result in a dismissal of the charges.
You need an attorney immediately since there are consequences of refusing to take the test at the station. You have a very short time to request a hearing before an administrative law judge or a one year ignition interlock. Your failure to do either will result in a 120 day suspension of your driver's license.
You also face charges for the DUI which carry 12 points, a year in jail, and a $1,000 fine. An attorney can take steps to protect your license and your liberty. It is possible to keep your record clean with the help of an attorney.See question

You need a Virginia attorney since the offense took place there. Use the Find a Lawyer feature to locate an attorney in the area where you received the ticket. This is a criminal offense so get an attorney so you do not end up with a criminal record.
The points will not follow you to Maryland, but the conviction will.See question

You are likely to go to jail, but you can take steps to minimize the damage by taking steps to having your license reinstated. Do not drive until you do so. Hire an attorney to defend the charges. Use the Public Defender if you cannot afford a private attorney.
This is a serious situation that requires counsel.See question

It is irrelevant that other kids were not charged, but many counties have diversion programs for underage drinking where you do community service and take a class. Upon completion, the charges dropped and can be expunged. Consult with an attorney about your case.See question
