CHAPTER 7 TRUSTEE’S APPLICATION 14 TO EMPLOY DEVELOPMENT 15 SPECIALISTS, INC. AS ACCOUNTANTS AND FINANCIAL ADVISORS; 16 DECLARATION OF THOMAS JEREMIASSEN IN SUPPORT THEREOF 17 18 [No Hearing Required Pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rules 2014-1(b)(1) and 9013- 19 1(o)] 20 TO THE HONORABLE BARRY RUSSELL, UNITED STATES BANKRTUPCY JUDGE: 21 Elissa D. Miller, the duly appointed chapter 7 trustee (“Trustee” or “Applicant”) of the 22 bankruptcy estate (the “Estate”) of Girardi Keese (the “Debtor”), hereby seeks authority to 23 employ Development Specialists, Inc. (“DSI”) as her accountants and financial advisors, 24 effective January 11, 2021, and in support of her application (the “Application”), respectfully 25 represents as follows: 26 1. This bankruptcy case was commenced by the filing of an involuntary chapter 727 bankruptcy petition on December 18, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), and Applicant was appointed as 28 the interim chapter 7 trustee on January 6, 2021.

1

1 2. On January 13, 2021, an order for relief was entered and Applicant was appointed2 as the chapter 7 trustee. 3 3. The Trustee seeks to retain DSI as her accountants and financial advisors on the4 terms and conditions as set forth in the Application. The professional services that DSI will 5 render to the Trustee may include, but are not limited to, the following: 6 a. To analyze the books and records of the Debtor to investigate the status7 and values of assets of the Estate; 8 b. To assist in the identification of possible causes of action and support of9 any litigation brought by the Trustee; 10 c. To reconstruct financial transactions of the Debtor; 11 d. To analyze and liquidate claims against the Estate; 12 e. To assist, if necessary, with preparation of the Debtor’s schedules of assets13 and liabilities and statement of financial affairs; and 14 f. Other accounting and consulting services as required by the Trustee. 15 4. The Trustee is informed and believes DSI's professionals have on many occasions16 performed similar services to the ones required in this case for numerous debtors, trustees, 17 receivers, examiners and creditors' committees in other non-related cases under receivership, 18 bankruptcy and other insolvency proceedings in the State of California and elsewhere. In 19 addition, DSI's professionals have experience working on cases with similar fact scenarios in 20 which they were presented with issues and performed analyses similar to the work at hand in this 21 case. Therefore, the Trustee believes that DSI is well qualified to assist her with regard to the 22 above-referenced matters. The employment of DSI as accountants and financial advisors for the 23 Trustee would be economical and in the best interest of the Estate and its creditors, and will 24 greatly assist the Trustee in carrying out her duties in an efficient and effective matter. 25 5. The resumes of the professionals anticipated to have primary responsibility for26 this Estate are attached as Exhibit "A" to the Declaration of Thomas Jeremiassen. 27 28

1 6. Based on the Attached Declaration of Thomas Jeremiassen, the Applicant2 understands that DSI is disinterested with respect to the Debtor, creditors of the Estate, or any 3 other party in interest, as that term is defined in 11 U.S.C. § 101(14). 4 7. DSI has no connection or relationship with any Bankruptcy Judge. Also, except5 with respect to certain other bankruptcy engagements where a DSI consultant acts as a trustee of 6 a debtor, or engagements where DSI provides consulting services to a trustee of a debtor, DSI 7 has no connection or relationship with the Office of the United States Trustee or any person 8 employed in the Office of the United States Trustee. 9 8. DSI has not received, and shall not receive, a retainer from the Trustee for its10 services. DSI has no agreement to share any compensation to be awarded in these cases with any 11 other person. The Trustee shall review and make final adjustments of all compensation and 12 expenses requested by DSI before this court and as permitted under 11 U.S.C. §§ 330 and 331. 13 9. The Trustee is informed and believes that DSI's hourly rates are comparable to14 other firms in the Central District of California area offering comparable services. DSI adjusts 15 its billing rates annually based on the normal increases DSI charges all of its clients. The normal 16 hourly rates currently in effect for DSI personnel who are likely to work on this matter are 17 reflected on Exhibit “B” attached to the Declaration of Thomas Jeremiassen. 18 10. Various levels of professionals and paraprofessionals will be utilized to ensure19 that billing rates are in line with the level of responsibility and specialization of tasks. 20 11. Due to the nature of the services to be performed and the qualifications of DSI,21 the Trustee believes that it is appropriate and in the best interest of the Estate that the Court 22 approve DSI's employment. 23 12. Notice of this Application and an opportunity to request a hearing has been given24 to the creditors of this Estate. 25 WHEREFORE, the Trustee prays for an order authorizing her to retain the firm of 26 Development Specialists, Inc. as her accountants and financial advisors with respect to the 27 matters referred to within this Application, upon the terms and conditions set forth therein, 28

1 effective January 11, 2021, with compensation to be paid in such amounts as this Court may 2 hereafter determine. 3 4 Dated: January 15, 2021 Respectfully submitted, 5 ______________________________ 6 Elissa D.

1 DECLARATION OF THOMAS JEREMIASSEN 2 I, Thomas Jeremiassen, declare: 3 1. I am a Senior Managing Director at Development Specialists, Inc. (“DSI”). I4 have personal knowledge of the facts stated in this Declaration, and if called as a witness, I could 5 and would testify competently to these facts, except where matters are stated on information and 6 belief, and as to these facts, I am informed and believe that they are true. 7 2. In connection with the proposed retention of DSI as accountants and financial8 advisors for the chapter 7 trustee, Elissa D. Miller (the “Trustee”), in the case of Girardi Keese 9 (the “Debtor”), DSI has been provided a list of the Debtor’s creditors and other persons 10 identified as parties in interest in the Debtor’s bankruptcy case. DSI has processed the Debtor’s 11 names, and the names of the creditors and other parties through DSI’s conflicts check system and 12 reviewed the results of that processing. 13 3. Based on the process referred to in paragraph 2 above, to the best of my14 knowledge, information and belief, I am informed and believe that: 15 a. DSI had no previous contact or ties with the Debtor; 16 b. DSI does not provide services to any party on the Conflicts Search List;17 c. DSI is not a creditor, an equity security holder, or an insider of the Debtor;18 d. DSI is not and was not an investment banker for any outstanding security19 of the Debtor; 20 e. DSI was not, within three years before the Petition Date, an investment21 banker for a security of the Debtor, or an accountant or consultant to such an investment banker 22 in connection with the offer, sale or issuance of any security of the Debtor; 23 f. DSI is not and was not, within two years before the Petition Date, a24 director, officer, or employee of the Debtor or of an investment banker of the Debtor; 25 g. DSI does not have an interest materially adverse to the interest of the26 Debtor or of any class of creditors or equity security holders by reason of any direct or indirect 27 relationship with, connection with, or interest in, the Debtor or any investment banker, or for any 28 other reason;

5

1 h. Except with respect to certain other bankruptcy engagements where an 2 DSI consultant acts as a trustee of a debtor or as a consultant to a trustee of a debtor, DSI has no 3 connection with the United States Trustee or persons employed in the Office of the United States 4 Trustee; and 5 i. DSI was not owed any sums by the Debtor for services rendered and costs6 advanced on behalf of the Debtor prior to the Petition Date. 7 4. It is possible that DSI has provided, is presently providing, and may in the future8 provide, consulting services to those parties listed on the Conflicts Search List, or other creditors 9 or parties-in-interest in the Debtor’s bankruptcy cases unrelated to any matter involving this 10 bankruptcy case. However, to the best of my knowledge, none of those prior and current 11 engagements or other dealings makes DSI an interested person under the bankruptcy laws. If 12 DSI subsequently identifies a creditor or other party-in-interest of the Debtor’s bankruptcy Estate 13 that DSI has or is providing consulting services to in connection with this bankruptcy matter, 14 such information will be promptly disclosed in writing to the Court and to the Office of the 15 United States Trustee. 16 5. DSI serves as a fiduciary, accountants and financial advisors in other unrelated17 bankruptcy cases in which the Trustee is or may be involved. Such connections do not give DSI 18 an adverse interest to the Debtor and do not affect DSI’s “disinterestedness” as required by 19 section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code. 20 6. DSI is currently employed in unrelated cases, including bankruptcy cases, as21 expert witnesses and/or consultants for which other counsel associated with this case may be 22 involved. I believe that such connections do not give DSI an adverse interest to the Debtor and 23 do not affect DSI’s “disinterestedness” as required by Bankruptcy Code section 327. 24 7. Resumes of the DSI professionals expected to have primary responsibility for this25 case are attached as Exhibit “A”. 26 8. The hourly rates of DSI professionals likely to work on this case are set forth in27 detail on Exhibit “B” attached hereto. 28
