No, but a good attorney can give guidance as to likely expectations.  As
you say, nobody can be sure of something even if it's previously been
"established law", but a good attorney can point out potential pitfalls on
the one hand and identify, on the other, things that are much less likely
to be an issue.  It's not a guarantee, but you can often get a
recommendation about whether or not it's a good idea (not necessarily
"alright") to do something.

Attorneys often have to a take a stand on these matters.  If a company
needs to use software that performs a specific thing and, say, only three
companies provide such, but under different licensing terms, it's the job
of that company's legal department to say which, if any, they can be used.
"Doing nothing" will have a cost and risk here too because this example is
talking about something that the company needs done.
