Get with a local attorney to best protect yourself.

Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online.

It is common for people who work in the legal system to have relationships with people within that system. How close the friendship is and whether it is such that it could be deemed to interfere with the ability of the person to do their job would be the question to ask. The ability to answer that question is far outside anything anyone here can do. Your best bet is to retain a lawyer and ask the lawyer to look at the entirety of your situation and decide whether this is an issue worth exploring.
