1 MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 2 I. 3 STATEMENT OF RELEVANT FACTS AND DISCUSSION 4 On December 18, 2020 an involuntary petition under chapter 7 of title 11 of the United 5 States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101 et seq. (the “Bankruptcy Code”), was filed against Girardi Keese (th 6 “Debtor” or “GK”), commencing Case No. 2:20-bk-21022-BR (the “Case”). On January 6, 2021, 7 Elissa D. Miller (the “Trustee”) was appointed as the interim trustee. ECF No. 50. On January 13, 8 2021, the Clerk of the Court entered an Order for Relief (ECF No. 69) against the Debtor, and the 9 Trustee was appointed and accepted her appointment in the Case (ECF No. 71). 10 Dinsmore & Shohl LLP (“Dinsmore” or the “Firm”) appeared as bankruptcy counsel to 11 Erika Girardi in the Case. As set forth in the attached declaration of Peter J. Mastan (the “Mastan 12 Declaration”), the relationship of trust and confidence that is essential to a properly functioning 13 attorney-client relationship has broken down and, in the good faith assessment of counsel, the 14 relationship is irreparable. Withdrawal is appropriate under such circumstances. If the Court 15 concludes that additional information regarding the nature of the breakdown is necessary to decide 16 the Motion, counsel requests the opportunity to present such evidence in camera to protect the 17 confidential nature of the relationship between counsel and its client. See, e.g., Manfredi & Levine 18 Superior Court (1998) 66 Cal. App. 4th 1128, 1133 (general description of situation sufficient to 19 support withdrawal where there is no reason to doubt counsel’s good faith; in camera hearing may 20 held to obtain further non-privileged facts supporting the motion where necessary); Aceves v. 21 Superior Court, (1996) 51 Cal. App. 4th 584. 22 In moving to withdraw, there is no foreseeable prejudice, and the Firm’s withdrawal will n23 delay or prejudice these proceedings. No later than June 14, 2021, Ms. Girardi learned of the Firm24 withdrawal and the Firm’s willingness to facilitate the transfer of Ms. Girardi’s client file to new 25 counsel. Concurrently with the filing of this Motion, on June 15, 2021, Dinsmore again encouraged26 Ms. Girardi to locate replacement counsel. 27 ///

1 The Firm is ready, willing, and able to cooperate in a smooth transaction of the bankruptc 2 file and will make the client file available to Ms. Girardi or Ms. Girardi’s replacement counsel 3 promptly upon the granting of this Motion. 4 Dinsmore’s withdrawal will not delay or prejudice these proceedings. The following are t 5 upcoming deadlines in the Case affecting Ms. Girardi: None. There are no deadlines pertinent to M 6 Girardi scheduled in the Case at this time. 7 8 II. 9 CAUSE EXISTS FOR AN ORDER GRANTING LEAVE FOR THE FIRM TO 10 WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL OF RECORD FOR MS. GIRARDI 11 Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(p) provides: 12 The following motions may be determined without a hearing after notice 13 provided in the corresponding LBR cited [emphasis added]. 14 (4) Motion to Withdraw as Counsel [LBR 2091-1(a)] 15 Local Bankruptcy Rule 2091-1(a)(1) provides that, in the absence of a substitution of counsel, an 16 attorney seeking to withdraw from representation of an individual in a bankruptcy case must file a 17 motion requesting authorization to withdraw. 18 A federal court has the authority to permit an attorney to withdraw from an action at any 19 time for good and sufficient cause, and upon reasonable notice. In re Wynn, 889 F.2d 644, 646 (5th20 Cir. 1989) (“An attorney may withdraw from representation only upon leave of the court and a 21 showing of good cause and reasonable notice to the client.”); see also Lovvorn v. Johnston, 118 F.222 704, 706 (9th Cir. 1941). 23 Rule 1.16 [formerly Rule 3-700] of the California Rules of Professional Conduct sets forth24 when an attorney shall or may withdraw from representing a client. Rule 1.16(b) states that “a lawy25 may withdraw from representing a client” in several circumstances, including: 26 (4) the client by other conduct renders it unreasonably difficult for the 27 lawyer to carry out the representation effectively;

4

1 (10) the lawyer believes in good faith, in a proceeding pending before a 2 tribunal, that the tribunal will find the existence of other good cause for 3 withdrawal. 4 This Motion is brought on the grounds that the relationship of trust and confidence so 5 necessary to the effective and proper functioning of an attorney-client relationship has ceased to exi 6 and, in the good faith judgment of counsel, has been permanently and irreparably damaged. As a 7 result, the Firm has determined that it can no longer effectively represent Ms. Girardi and has sough 8 permission to be relieved. 9 The breakdown in the attorney-client relationship has long been recognized as a ground fo10 authorizing the attorney to withdraw. See, e.g. Rus, Miliband & Smith v. Conkle & Olesten (2003) 11 113 Cal. App. 4th 656, 673 (“The law can afford to take a relatively permissive attitude toward 12 withdrawals qua withdrawals. If attorney and client cannot agree, how can they litigate together? 13 There is no need to unequally yoke a union when one of the parties clearly wants out.”). 14 Due to the breakdown of the relationship between the Firm and Ms. Girardi set forth in th15 attached Mastan Declaration, cause exists for this Court to enter an Order granting leave for the Fir16 to withdraw as counsel of record in the Case. 17 18 III. 19 CONCLUSION 20 Based upon the foregoing, the Firm respectfully requests that this Court enter an Order 21 granting the Firm leave to withdraw as counsel for Ms. Girardi in the Case, and for such other relief22 as this Court deems just and proper. 23 DINSMORE & SHOHL LLP Dated: June 15, 2021 24 By: /s/ Peter J.

1 DECLARATION OF PETER J. MASTAN 2 I, Peter J. Mastan, declare as follows: 3 1. I am a partner in Dinsmore & Shohl LLP (“Dinsmore” or the “Firm”), bankruptcy 4 counsel of record to Erika Girardi in the above-captioned bankruptcy case. I have personal 5 knowledge of the facts set forth herein and, if called as a witness, could and would testify 6 competently thereto. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein have the same meanings 7 ascribed to them in the Motion to which this Declaration is attached. 8 2. There has been a fundamental and material breakdown in the relationship between 9 the Firm and Ms. Girardi. The relationship of trust and confidence necessary to the proper 10 functioning of an attorney-client relationship has ceased to exist. In my good faith judgment, the 11 attorney-client relationship has been irreparably damaged and it is no longer possible to carry on an 12 attorney-client relationship with the necessary degree of trust and confidence which is foundational 13 that relationship. While I do not believe the precise nature of the breakdown can be described witho14 potentially violating the attorney-client privilege or breaching client confidentiality, I am prepared t15 respond to any questions the court may have in camera, if necessary, subject to the limits imposed 16 case law. 17 3. No later than June 14, 2021, the Firm notified Ms. Girardi of its withdrawal and 18 willingness to facilitate transfer of Ms. Girardi’s client file to new counsel. Concurrently with the 19 filing of the Motion on June 15, 2021, I notified Ms. Girardi that Dinsmore had filed it Motion to 20 withdraw in the Case and encouraged Ms. Girardi to locate new counsel, alerting her to the potentia21 consequences of not timely securing replacement counsel. As of the date of this Declaration, Ms. 22 Girardi has not identified new counsel to the Firm. 23 4. Dinsmore’s withdrawal will not delay or prejudice these proceedings. The followi24 are the upcoming deadlines affecting Ms. Girardi in the Case: None. 25 5. There are no other deadlines pertinent to Ms. Girardi scheduled in the Case at this 26 time. 27 ///

1 6. I, therefore, believe that the Firm’s withdrawal at this time will not unreasonably 2 prejudice Ms. Girardi. 3 4 I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the foregoing is tr 5 and correct. 6 Dated: June 15, 2021 /s/ Peter J. Mastan 7 Peter J. Mastan 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
