Default non compete agreement - and joining end client

I'm employed by H1 body shop company-A (New Jersey). I'm working for end-client company-C (Maryland) through vendor company-B.

I got a full time offer from my end client company-C. I spoke to company-B to see if they have any issues, and they were totally OK.

So, I accepted the offer, and company-C got my H1 transferred.

Now, I gave notice at my employer company-A. But, it seems I had signed "non compete agreement" as part of my on-boarding, which says:

Quote:
"the employee shall not, directly or indirectly, on behalf of any entity be employed by any of Employer's clients, vendors, brokers, end-clients, end-users, or any entity or individual introduced to employee by the Employer or any entity or individual that Employee provided services to or for pursuant to the Employee's obligations under this agreement".
Quote:
"any defend and litigation...be..in...court of New Jersey"
Few additional details:
  1. Company-A did not introduce me to company-B or company-C. Instead I found the company-B through Dice and got the interview at end-client C. (though company-A already had other H1Bs working through the company-B)
  2. Also, I never solicited the full time. The company-C offered it to me first.
  3. Company-A says they will be withholding by 19k+ bonus untill I pay them 16K+

Does this non compete agreement looks binding? Should I be consulting Employment Attornery in Maryland, or in New Jersey?

Any chance if I go ahead and try defend this in court.

Does anyone know any employer won any such non-compete agreements?
