Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The average cost of such a review would be a minimum hour charge with a local attorney, which usually would be about $300-$500 I am afraid. You can get local attorneys to do this at the same site used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org.
If you have some specific questions about the contract you would like answered we can do that for a bit less, depending on the nature of your situation and contract length.
