Why wouldn't it? The new wall will simply catch everything the old wall is letting by.

I think it is hard to know that without seeing it, and I believe the OP would have thought of that first, but I guess anything is possible.

I certainly could build a wall with substantial footings that might contain the old wall but the sections that are all broken up should be removed as well as the concrete bumper supporting the base of the wall. At one point my neighbor suggested building the new wall on my property and that might be the way out of the squabble as long as she agrees to remove the old one. Disturbing and compromising the large oak tree that is pushing out one section of the wall will still be an issue since she wants to keep the tree. I hate to see it get chopped down too but oaks have shallow roots and are sensitive to having their roots disturbed (says an arborist... not making it up! ) I kind of feel like she's going to be difficult no matter what and make every step incredibly painful. I have an appointment with an attorney next week.
Thank you all for your kind words and recommendations!
