The Trustee is requesting that the Motion be granted without a hearing as provided in Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(o) unless a party in interest timely 26 files and serves a written opposition to the Motion and requests a hearing. The Motion issummarized as follows: 27 1. The Motion requests approval of compromises with Melanie Savarese of 28 the Savarese Law Firm ("Savarese") regarding the allocation of contingency fees earned

1

1 in three cases where the Debtor and Savarese acted as the plaintiffs' co-counsel pre-petition. Savarese has been the attorney primarily responsible for prosecuting the cases 2 The Trustee has reached agreements regarding allocation of contingency fees with Savarese. The compromises contemplated in the Motion were reached after taking into 3 account the efforts by all parties in prosecuting the cases. The Trustee believes the compromises are fair and equitable and in the best interest of the Estate. 4 (a) Settlement with Savarese re Sarmiento v. City of Los Angeles. Prior5 to the Petition Date, the Debtor and then-co-counsel Savarese commenced an action in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Case No. BC710070, on behalf 6 of plaintiff Delia Sarmiento ("Sarmiento"). The fee agreement provides for a percentage of the gross amount of any recovery obtained after the filing of the 7 complaint, plus reimbursement of costs. The Sarmiento Case recently settled. Based on the settlement amount, the Estate's share of the Contingency Fee is 8 33.33%, or $107,989.20 and Savarese's share of the Contingency Fee is 66.67%,or $216,010.80 . The Estate will receive $25,236.94 for costs incurred by the 9 Debtor in connection with the case. A copy of the Sarmiento Agreement, which fully sets out the terms of the settlement, is attached to the Motion as Exhibit "1." 10 (b) Settlement with Savarese re Bilgin v. City of Los Angeles. Prior to 11 the Petition Date, the Debtor and then-co-counsel Savarese commenced an actio2 in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Case No. BC676034, on behalf of 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 ptrhelaeimi ngbtriuoffrs sPse aamtmreiconiaut noBtf i locgfoi nas tn(s"y.B riTelghcineo" vD)e. er yTb htooebr tfaweiienth eaddgr eraewftee mfrr oethmnet tpfhilreion vgcia dosefe st h ifneo rDc aoe mcpeepmrlcabeinentrt, a 2pg0lue2s 0o ,f ornia ax 71 and Savarese subsequently took several depositions and prepared for trial.

The Estate's share of the Contingency Fee is 25% and a 4 ost4 4 16 Savarese's share of the Contingency Fee is 75%. Savarese is responsible for C71 paying any counsel she associates in the case out of the Savarese fees. The el 17 Estate will receive $39,212.88 for costs incurred by the Debtor in connection with T the case. The Debtor incurred costs totaling $42,077.88, but received $2,865.00 18 in refunds that were not recorded on the Debtor's cost report, and the Trustee hascredited the Estate's Bilgin Costs in that amount. A copy of the Bilgin Agreement,19 which fully sets out the terms of the settlement, is attached to the Motion as Exhibit "2." 20 (c) Settlement with Savarese re Rosemarie McElvea. Prior to the 21 Petition Date, the Debtor and then-co-counsel Savarese commenced an action in the Ventura County Superior Court, Case No. 56-2019-00525571-CU-WT-VTA , 22 on behalf of plaintiff Rosemarie McElyea ("McElyea"). The fee agreement provides for a percentage of the gross amount of any recovery obtained after the 23 filing of the complaint (the "McElyea Contingency Fee"), plus reimbursement of costs. The case recently settled and the Trustee and Savarese discussed at som24 length whether the Debtor should be entitled to any part of the McElyea Contingency Fee given that Savarese did all of the work while they were co-25 counsel with the exception of one telephonic hearing and has done a substantial amount since. The Trustee could locate no billing records related to this case. 26 Accordingly, the Trustee has agreed to waive any portion of the contingency fee based on the Debtor's de minimis role in the case. The Estate will receive 27 $6,670.76 for costs incurred by the Debtor in connection with the case. A copy of the McElyea Agreement, which fully sets out the terms of the settlement, is 28 attached to the Motion as Exhibit "3."

1 2. The settlements are reasonable and in the best interest of the Debtor's Estate. The allocation of the contingency fees considers the respective roles and effort 2 put forward by the Debtor and Savarese. This result benefits the Estate. The Trustee believes that the allocation of the contingency fees and the waiver of fees with respect to 3 McElyea as set forth in the agreements and in the Motion are fair based on the parties' respective roles. The Trustee negotiated these settlements to minimize the risks and 4 costs associated with possible litigation if the parties were unable to arrive at an equitablresolution. In the absence of a consensual resolution, the Estate would have to litigate a5 quantum meruit claim for fees and costs. The litigation would be time consuming and would require a significant expenditure of the Estate's resources. The Trustee believes 6 that the upside is marginal even if the Trustee were to be successful in the litigation. Moreover, no litigation is without risk. The Trustee evaluated the potential strengths and7 weaknesses of the Estate's position in the litigation and negotiated the settlements described in this Motion in an effort to maximize the return to creditors. The 8 compromises were entered into in good faith and were negotiated at arm's length. 9 DEADLINE FOR FILING AND SERVING OPPOSITION PAPERS AND REQUEST FOR A HEARING: Pursuant to LBR 9013-1(o), any party who opposes the 10 Motion may request a hearing on the Motion. The deadline to file and serve a written opposition and request for hearing is 14 days after the date of service of this notice, plus11 3 additional days if you were served by mail or pursuant to F.R.Civ.P. 5(b)(2)(D) or (F). 2 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 TIf ryuosute feIaf iwly toiollu fc itloiemm aepnlyldy fswileeit rhav enth dai s sn edorevtiacede al io nwfe rh:i teteanri nogp paot sleitaiosnt 1a4n dd areyqs uine satd fvoar nac hee oafr itnhge, htheea ring. ornia ax 71 a, Calif00 • F 14 properl(ya )s erveTdh,e ( 2T)r uthsete ree swpioll nfislee ap edreiocdla eralatiposne tdo, iannddic a(3te) n(1o) p tahret yM fioletido na nwda ss erves0 15 a written opposition and request for a hearing within 14 days after the date of e1 M5- service of the notice; a 4 ost4 4 16 C71 (b) The Trustee will lodge an order that the Court may use to grant the el 17 Motion; and T 18 (c) The Court may treat your failure as a waiver of your right to oppose the Motion and may grant the Motion without further hearing and notice. 19 DATED: August 23, 2021 SMILEY WANG-EKVALL, LLP 20 21 22 By: /s/ Kyra E.
