Insurance industry, moved from FL to CA and a client would like to remain with me, but I signed NC

While employed by a large national broker in FL I signed non compete agreement which is valid for 2 years. I have 2 property and casualty clients in FL that would like to have me continue to write their insurance under the new national brokerage firm I'm employed by in CA - will the non compete prevent me from taking care of my client? Do I have to wait for 2 years to bring these clients over to my new firm?

Thank you for your help...

CA law would not prevent you from taking care of your clients at a CA employer, but there are some significant tactical issues in such cases. First move should be to review your non-compete with your new employer's attorney, if available. If that's not available, consult with an experienced CA attorney. is a good source for finding an employee-side attorney near you.
