1 I. INTRODUCTION 2 This Motion requests approval of a compromise between the bankruptcy estate, 3 Angelo White ("Angelo"), and Panish Shea & Boyle LLP ("PSB") regarding the allocation4 of the contingency fees earned in an action pending in the Eighth Judicial District Court, 5 for the County of Clark, Nevada. Prior to the filing of the bankruptcy petition, the Debtor 6 and Angelo commenced actions on behalf of three plaintiffs in the Eighth Judicial District 7 Court, for the County of Clark, Nevada. The Debtor later associated PSB to prosecute 8 the cases. The cases have settled and PSB is holding the settlement proceeds pending 9 an order approving this Motion. 10 The compromise contemplated by this Motion was reached after taking into 11 account the efforts by all parties in prosecuting the cases and in negotiating the 2 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 sinettetlreemste onft sth. e T Ehset aTtreu.s tee believes the compromise is fair and equitable and in the best ornia ax 71 a, Calif00 • F 14 s0 15 II. BACKGROUND e1 M5- a 4 ost4 4 16 A. The Debtor's Bankruptcy Case C1 7 el 17 The Debtor was a plaintiff's law firm based in Los Angeles, California. On T 18 December 18, 2020, petitioning creditors Jill O'Callahan, as successor in interest to 19 James O'Callahan, Robert M. Keese, John Abassian, Erika Saldana, Virginia Antonio, 20 and Kimberly Archie (collectively, the "Petitioning Creditors") filed an involuntary 21 chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against the Debtor.1 On December 24, 2020, the 22 Petitioning Creditors filed a Motion for Appointment of Interim Trustee Pursuant to 23 11 U.S.C. § 303(g) [Docket No. 12]. The Court entered an order granting the motion on 24 January 5, 2021 [Docket No. 45]. On January 6, 2021, the Trustee was appointed as th25 interim trustee [Docket No. 50]. 26 1 The Petitioning Creditors also filed an involuntary chapter 7 bankruptcy petition 27 against Thomas V. Girardi, which is currently pending as Bankruptcy Case No. 2:20-bk-21020-BR.

1 On January 13, 2021, the Court entered an Order Directing: (1) The Clerk of Cour2 to Immediately Enter an Order for Relief under Chapter 7; (2) The United States Trustee 3 to Immediately Appoint a Chapter 7 Trustee; (3) The Debtor to File All Schedules and 4 Related Documentation for Chapter 7 Case within Fourteen Days of the Entry of this 5 Order; and (4) Vacating February 16, 2021 Status Conference [Docket No. 68]. On 6 January 13, 2021, the Clerk of Court entered an order for relief against the Debtor 7 [Docket No. 69], and the Trustee was appointed and accepted her appointment in the 8 Debtor's case [Docket No. 71]. 9 B. The Compromise 10 Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor and Angelo were retained by Heidi B., 11 Megan K., and Christina S. (the "Clients") to represent them in actions pending in the 2 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 Eeti gahl,t hv .J MudGicMia lR Deissotrritcst ICntoeurrnta, tfioorn tahle, eCt oaul,n Ctya osfe C Nlaor.k A, N1e8v 7a6d9a7, 5e2n tCitl e(cdo Rlleaccthiveel lSy,h tehpep ard,ornia ax 71 a, Calif00 • F 14 "Cases"). The fee agreements with the Clients provide a fee to the Debtor and Angelo s0 15 based on a percentage of the gross amount of any recovery obtained after the filing of e1 M5- a 4 ost4 4 16 the complaint (collectively, the "Contingency Fees"), plus reimbursement of costs. In C1 7 el 17 2020, the Debtor associated PSB to prosecute the Cases on behalf of the Clients. The T 18 Clients' Cases recently settled and PSB is holding the gross settlement funds for the 19 Clients, which includes funds for the Contingency Fees. The Trustee, Angelo, and PSB 20 have reached an agreement with respect to the allocation of their shares of the 21 Contingency Fees and for the reimbursement costs. The compromise is described as 22 follows: 23 The Trustee, Angelo and PSB have agreed to allocate the Contingency Fees with24 respect to the Clients' Cases as follows: PSB will receive 35% of the Contingency Fees,25 and the Trustee and Angelo will share the remaining 65%, with the Trustee receiving 26 45% and Angelo receiving 55%. By way of example, if a contingency fee is $100.00, 27 PSB will receive $35.00, the Trustee will receive $29.25, and Angelo will receive $35.75.

The Trustee believes the compromise is equitable to al3 parties. 4 A copy of the Agreement, which fully sets out the terms of the settlement, is 5 attached hereto as Exhibit "1." 6 7 III. MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 8 A. The Court Can Approve the Settlement Agreements 9 Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure ("FRBP") 9019(a) provides, in part, that a 10 court may approve a compromise per motion by the trustee and after a hearing on notice11 to the debtor, all creditors, and all interested parties.

In re A & C Properties, 784 F.2d e1 M5- a 4 ost4 4 16 1377, 1380-81 (9th Cir. 1986). C1 7 el 17 "The bankruptcy court has great latitude in approving compromising agreements."T 18 See id. In approving a settlement agreement, the court must find that it is fair and 19 equitable and the product of good-faith negotiations. See id. Generally speaking, the 20 court may defer to the business judgment of the debtor-in-possession or trustee in 21 deciding whether to settle a matter. See In re Mickey McLean Entertainment Group, Inc. 22 292 B.R. 415, 420 (B.A.P. 9th Cir. 2003). The court need not conclude that the propose23 settlement is the best possible compromise, but only that the settlement is "within the 24 reasonable range of litigation possibilities." See In re World Health Alternatives, Inc., 3425 B.R. 291, 296 (Bankr. D. Del. 2006). Similarly, the court need not, and should not 26 conduct a "mini-trial" on the compromised claims but simply determine that disputes 27 related to those claims exist. See In re Schmitt, 215 B.R. 417, 423 (B.A.P. 9th Cir. 1997)

Colo. 1986) ("[T]he court's 3 assessment does not require resolution of the issues, but only their identification, so that4 the reasonableness of the settlement may be evaluated."). It is enough that the court 5 conclude the probability of success is uncertain. See, e.g., In re America West Airlines, 6 Inc., 214 B.R. 382, 386 (Bankr. D. Ariz. 1997). 7 B. The Settlements are Fair and Reasonable 8 The settlement is reasonable and in the best interest of the Debtor's Estate. The 9 allocation of the Contingency Fees considers the role and effort put forward by the 10 collaborating attorneys, the ultimate result of the Cases, and the amount of fees and 11 costs at issue. This result benefits the Estate. The Trustee believes that the allocation o2 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 tthhee Cpaorntiteinsg' erenscpye Fcetivees raosl esse.t fTohrteh Tinru tshtee eA gbreelieemveesn tt haantd t hine tchoism Mprootmioins eis i sfa fiar ibr aasnedd on ornia ax 71 a, Calif00 • F 14 reasonable for the reasons stated below. s0 15 The Trustee negotiated this settlement to minimize the risks and costs associatede1 M5- a 4 ost4 4 16 with possible litigation if the parties were unable to arrive at an equitable resolution. In C1 7 el 17 the absence of a consensual resolution, the Estate would have to litigate a quantum T 18 meruit claim for fees and costs. The litigation would be time consuming and would 19 require a significant expenditure of the Estate's resources. The Trustee believes that the20 upside is marginal even if the Trustee were to be successful in the litigation. Moreover, 21 no litigation is without risk. The Trustee evaluated the potential strengths and 22 weaknesses of the Estate's position in the litigation and negotiated the settlement 23 described in this Motion in an effort to maximize the return to creditors. 24 The compromise was entered into in good faith and was negotiated at arm's 25 length. 26 27

Authorizing the Trustee to enter into the Agreement; 6 3. Approving the terms of the Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto7 as Exhibit "1"; 8 4. Authorizing the Trustee to execute any documents or take any actions9 reasonably necessary to effectuate the terms of the Agreement; and 10 5.
