in the amount of 56.00 hours.

7. Applicant maintains contemporaneous records of the time expended for the

professional services and expenses related thereto performed in connection with this Chapter 11

case and such records are maintained in the ordinary course of its business. These records

provide a detailed description of the services rendered and expenses incurred during the period

for which this Application is being made. A summary of Applicant's time records in the sum of

$16,947.00 is attached hereto as Exhibit B. This summary is broken down according to specific

task categories relating specifically to this Chapter 11 case. In some cases, Applicant found a

situation where the task of a professional may fit into two or more categories. In these cases,

Applicant has tried to categorize the time expended into the most appropriate category. If the

Court requires any further descriptions on these time entries, Applicant will provide additional

information.

8. Applicant believes that the post-petition services for the period May 1,

2009 through May 31, 2009 are reasonably worth the sum of $16,947.00 as set forth in the

summary identified as Exhibit B. Applicant notes that these costs are customary charges made to

other firm clients in the ordinary course of its billing practice. To assist the Court in its review of

the fees sought by Applicant, Applicant has separated its time entries in Exhibit B into the

following categories:

9. The attorneys who primarily worked on this case occasionally found it

necessary to consult with other attorneys in the firm on various aspects of the case. A brief

biography of each of the primary attorneys, along with a description of their areas of expertise,

are set forth in the summary identified as Exhibit C.

10. As outlined above, the attorneys who worked on this case from May 1,

2009 through May 31, 2009 have various levels of expertise. From time to time these attorneys

consulted with each other and other attorneys on different aspects of the case. It is submitted that

this is a more efficient way to run a case than to expect a single attorney to be an expert in all

applicable areas of law. If a single attorney were to attempt to run a case such as this, the

attorney would have to learn through research what other attorneys know and can tell him based

on their years of knowledge and experience.

11. Applicant requires reimbursement of costs expended May 1, 2009 through

May 31, 2009 in the sum of$657.68 as set forth in the summary identified as Exhibit D.

course of its billing practice.

#10922474 v3

12. In accordance with the factors enumerated in section 330 of the

Bankruptcy Code, it is respectfully submitted that the amount requested is fair and reasonable

given (a) the complexity of the case, (b) the time expended, (c) the nature and the extent of the

services rendered, (d) the value of such services, and (e) the costs of comparable services other

than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code. Moreover, Applicant has reviewed the requirements

of DeL BanIa. LR 2016 and the Administrative Order and believes that this Application complies

with such Rule and Order.

WHEREFORE, your Applicant respectfully requests, for the period May 1,2009

through May 31, 2009, an interim allowance be made for compensation in the amount of

$16,947.00 and actual and necessary expenses in the amount of$657.68 for a total allowance of
