Think of the courts as stadium for a professional sports team, paid for by the taxpayers. Think of the lawyers as the athletes that compete in the stadium. Think of yourself as the spectator that gets to pay thousands of net dollars to watch the spectacle. Oh! and the team is called 'the family court raptors.

Judges earn over $250,000 per year ( definitely in the 1% of income earners in this country).

Lawyers bill $350.00 to $800.00 per hour ( A Canadian neurosurgeon typically invoices the government $ $350.00 per hour)
