I’m trying to seek legal advice about my job contract, there are some places locally however they aren’t open at a time I can go without taking off work. I have pretty straightforward questions that I feel could be answered, especially if I am able to send copy/pasted parts of my contract through a message.
Theres literally no shortage of websites that offer to do this., most require a monthly subscription which I don’t mind paying for one month and then canceling. I’m just curious if anybody has used one of these before and if it was worth it/a scam/etc and which one you would recommend?

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.

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.

Take an afternoon off and meet with an actual lawyer, face-to-face, in your area.
