I cannot guarantee how a judge will rule in a particular case and there are a lot of factors which go into a Judge's ruling. Keep in mind that I am licensed in California, not New York. What I would suggest you do is speak with a lawyer in Manhattan or the surrounding area who can advise you.

Ms. Johns is a lawyer although she is not your lawyer unless and until you have consulted with her and signed a fee contract or letter agreement confirming her representation of you. This post does not constitute legal advice and no attorney client relationship results.
