You should hire an attorney, there are some complex state and federal laws involved. Even the difference of a few days makes a huge difference here.

If you want any chance of getting paid, you need to hire counsel. Chapter 11s are very procedural and your key to getting a leg up in this case is being determined as a secured creditor. You may be able to recover attorneys' fees in the bankruptcy process to recover your claim. Hire a local attorney in New York who works on Chapter 11s frequently.

You will be secured if you have a valid lien and are properly perfected. You may be able to get relief from stay depending on the facts.
