Legal Question in Employment Law in New York

I was hired as a 1099 contract worker at a real estate firm. I signed a non-compete agreement and attended training for a week. I've received a better offer at another firm and want to work there - is the non-compete agreement enforceable? Also, my current employer only lists properties in Brooklyn, NY and the new employer only lists in Manhattan.

Unfortunately without reviewing the non-compete itself, it's impossible to answer this question. In addition, there are additional facts that need to be discussed to render an opinion.

My office has a special offer for LawGuru clients where we can conduct a limited review of the matter for $198 an hour. To take advantage of this limited time offer please go to:
