Can you email the local places? I would start there. Maybe they could review your contract and answer your questions via email.

Hire a local employment attorney in the jurisdiction that governs the contract (hopefully one that came personally recommended). Email the entire contract to them to review (reading sections in a vacuum leads to bad legal advice) along with your questions. Then review it with them over the phone so you can ask follow up questions to make sure your fully understand their advice.

zl27 :  said pretty much what I was thinking. 

When you send chunks from a contract, the other party is impaired from the entire binder. This can lead to problems and misinterpretations from omission, leading to incorrect or incomplete legal advice.

p.s. I work with attorneys daily. There are some that I have worked with for years that I have never met with in person. It’s very normal to do everything over email and phone.
