Without the original parts it's hard to tell if the work was really needed. You probably did not have to spend so much. Lots of folks on this forum do their own work to control these kinds of problems.
I don't know any mechs in the Ohio area, but several forum members are in that area and can sometimes lend a knowing hand to situations like yours. I used speed bleeders this year on all my bikes, and really firmed up the brakes on all the bikes. It also makes it easy to change fluid by yourself, which I do yearly.
There should be no leakage around the cover. Perhaps they nicked the edge of the mating surface of the new master cylinder.
I would be reluctant to use that mechanic's shop again.
