You Get What You Pay For.
Counselor Bowen was handsomely compensated for his efforts on my wife's and my behalf during our during our recent and regrettable situation. Although not entirely because of this fact---Mr. Bowen was referred to me via a trusted tax accountant and a fellow lawyer---but certainly it didn't hurt. Thus far through the process I have no regrets nor do I anticipate any. There are some areas where bargain basement deals don't return the real value spent. Three categories come to mind immediately: Doctors, lawyers and Lasik surgery.
