Multiple district courts have commented on GDR's knowledge and experience. For 16 example, in Ritchie v. Van Ru Credit Corp., Judge Stephen M. McNamee, Senior U.S. District 17 Court Judge for the District of Arizona, stated upon finally approving a Telephone Consumer 18 Protection Act class action settlement led by my firm: 19 I want to thank all of you. It's been a pleasure. I hope that you will come back 20 and see us at some time in the future. And if you don't, I have a lot of cases I 21 would like to assign you, because you've been immensely helpful both to your clients and to the Court. And that's important. So I want to thank you all very 22 much. 23 Case No. CIV-12-1714 (D. Ariz. July 21, 2014). 24 10. In Donnelly v. EquityExperts.org, LLC, Judge Terrence G. Berg stated upon 25 approving a class action settlement and appointing my firm as class counsel: 26 27 [W]e see a fair number of FDCPA cases that are not necessarily at this level of sophistication or seriousness but I think that the—both sides appear to 28 have really approached this with a positive attitude in trying to reach a -3- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 settlement that from what I can see, appears to be the right thing to do in a reasonable and appropriate way. 2 3 No. 13-10017 (E.D. Mich. Jan. 14, 2015). 4 11. And Judge Carlton W. Reeves recently stated that Plaintiffs' attorneys are 5 "experienced and competent in class action litigation. [Plaintiffs'] attorneys—Greenwald 6 Davidson Radbil PLLC—have been appointed as class counsel in more than a dozen consumer 7 protection class actions in the past two years." McWilliams, 310 F.R.D. at 340; see also Roundtree, 8 304 F.R.D. at 661 (Judge James D. Whittemore declared upon certifying three FDCPA classes and 9 10 appointing my firm class counsel: "Greenwald [Davidson Radbil PLLC] has been appointed as 11 class counsel in a number of actions and thus provides great experience in representing plaintiffs 12 in consumer class actions."). 13 Summary and Overview of the Litigation 14 12. Plaintiffs filed their class action complaint on March 10, 2015. ECF No. 1. Therein, 15 Plaintiffs alleged that Defendant violated subsection 1692g(a)(4) of the FDCPA by failing to 16 17 adequately disclose to consumers how they could obtain verification of the debts Defendant sought 18 to collect from them. Id. 19 13. After two stipulations allowing Defendant additional time to respond to Plaintiffs' 20 complaint, ECF Nos. 13, 16, Defendant filed its answer and affirmative defenses on May 14, 2015. 21 ECF No. 17. 22 14. The parties prepared and filed their Joint Case Management Statement on June 2, 23 24 2015, ECF No. 27, and participated in a telephonic case management conference before this Court 25 on June 9, 2015. At this conference, Plaintiffs informed the Court of their intention to add Bank 26 of America, N.A. as a party-defendant. 27 15. Thus, on June 4, 2015, Plaintiffs amended their class complaint to bring Bank of 28 -4- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 America, N.A.—the client for whom Defendant issued the allegedly violative initial debt 2 collection letters to the class—into this litigation. ECF No. 29. 3 16. This Court then issued a scheduling order on June 15, 2015. ECF No. 35. Defendant 4 answered the amended complaint on June 17, 2016. ECF No. 36. By way of stipulations, Bank of 5 America was granted additional time to respond to the amended complaint. ECF Nos. 40, 45, 46. 6 7 17. Plaintiffs prepared and served written discovery on Defendant on June 18, 2015. 8 That discovery included 18 interrogatories and 21 requests for production. Plaintiffs' written 9 discovery focused on the size and makeup of the class, Defendant's net worth, Defendant's policies 10 and procedures to ensure compliance with the FDCPA, Defendant's relationship with Bank of 11 America, the preparation and dissemination of the initial debt collection letters at issue, and 12 exploration of the affirmative defenses asserted by Defendant in this matter. 13 14 18. All the while, counsel for the parties engaged in class-wide settlement discussions. 15 Plaintiffs first issued a class-wide settlement demand on April 2, 2015, to which Defendant 16 formally responded on April 30, 2015, rejecting the demand but proposing its own settlement 17 terms. 18 19. After consideration of Defendant's response and further discussions among counsel 19 and the parties, Plaintiffs issued a settlement counterproposal on May 29, 2015. Defendant 20 21 responded with its own counteroffer on June 8, 2015. 22 20. Negotiations among the parties continued throughout the summer. Plaintiffs served 23 another settlement counterproposal on June 30, 2015, and after further discussion among the 24 parties and their counsel, Plaintiffs then made an additional class-wide demand on July 20, 2015. 25 21. During this time, the Court appointed Richard Keenan as a third-party mediator to 26 27 assist with settlement discussions. On July 20, 2015, the parties, through counsel, participated in 28 a telephonic conference with Mr. Keenan to discuss preparation for a mediation session. This -5- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 impending session helped focus the parties' private negotiations to arrive at a mutually-agreeable 2 resolution in mid-September. 3 22. And with the terms of Plaintiffs' and the class's recoveries having been set, counsel 4 then continued their negotiations in hopes of reaching an agreement on the attorneys' fees and 5 expenses to be paid to class counsel. They concluded those negotiations on September 15, 2015 6 7 with an agreed range for fees and expenses, and the parties notified this Court on September 17, 8 2015 of their agreement, in principle, on a class-wide settlement. ECF No. 52. 9 23. Following a joint stipulation requesting additional time to finalize the parties' 10 settlement agreement, ECF No. 54, Plaintiffs filed their unopposed motion for preliminary 11 approval of their class settlement agreement on November 2, 2015. ECF No. 56. Along with their 12 motion, Plaintiffs submitted the agreement itself and all related exhibits: a proposed class notice 13 14 for the Court's review and approval, a proposed order of preliminary approval, and a proposed 15 final approval order. See ECF No. 56-1. 16 24. This Court heard argument on Plaintiffs' motion on December 17, 2015 and then 17 took the matter under advisement. 18 25. During the pendency of their unopposed motion, Plaintiffs also submitted three 19 Statements of Recent Decisions—one on December 15, 2015, ECF No. 59; another on January 5, 20 21 2016, ECF No. 62; and another on April 4, 2016, ECF No. 62—in further support of preliminary 22 approval. 23 26. On May 4, 2016, this Court granted preliminary approval to the parties' agreement 24 and directed the issuance of class notice. ECF No. 67. 25 27. Pursuant to that order, First Class, Inc.—the Court-appointed class administrator— 26 27 distributed notice via U.S. mail to each class member. See Affidavit of Bailey Hughes, attached to 28 the accompanying Motion for Final Approval of Class Action Settlement as Exhibit A. To this -6- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 point, no objections or exclusions have been received from class members. Class members have 2 until July 5, 2016 to so notify the parties and/or this Court. ECF No. 67. 3 28. This Court will hold a final fairness hearing at 2:00 p.m. on August 4, 2016 to 4 consider final approval of the parties' class settlement, as well as Plaintiffs' motion for approval 5 of an award of attorneys' fees and reimbursement of expenses. 6 7 The Settlement 8 29. The parties' settlement resolves the claims on behalf of the class of California 9 consumers preliminarily certified by this Court on May 4, 2016. Harper v. Law Office of Harris 10 & Zide LLP, No. 15-1114, 2016 WL 2344194 (N.D. Cal. May 4, 2016) (Gilliam, J.). 11 30. The agreement requires the Law Office of Harris and Zide, LLP ("Defendant") to 12 create a settlement fund totaling $11,570.00. Thus, each of the 1,111 participating class members 13 14 will receive at least $10.41.1 To the extent any settlement checks go uncashed after the class 15 administrator takes all reasonable steps to forward checks to any forwarding addresses, such 16 residual funds will be disbursed to Bay Area Legal Aid as the Court-approved cy pres recipient. 17 Significantly, no settlement funds will revert back to Defendant. 18 31. Additionally, Defendant agreed to pay—separate and apart from the settlement 19 fund—an award of attorneys' fees and expenses to class counsel in an amount to be determined by 20 21 this Court. Defendant also will pay the costs of settlement administration and notice, separate from 22 the monies paid to class members. 23 24 25 1 Initially, the parties believed there to be 1,157 class members. However, Defendant has since 26 determined that there are only 1,111 unique class members because some of those individuals had multiple accounts with Defendant and therefore received multiple allegedly violative letters. The settlement fund 27 will still be distributed among participating class members on a pro-rata basis, allowing approximately $10.41 per person. This payout figure is subject to further adjustment if any class members exclude 28 themselves between the filing of this declaration and the deadline for such exclusions—July 5, 2016. -7- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 GDR's Attorneys' Fees 2 32. Counsel's requested attorneys' fees and expenses are fair and reasonable given the 3 context of this litigation. This case has been pending since March 2015, and during the past 15 4 months, class counsel have devoted significant time and resources to this case, which includes: (a) 5 conducting an investigation into the underlying facts regarding Ms. Harper and Ms. Emerson's 6 7 claims; (b) preparing a class action complaint; (c) researching the law pertinent to class members' 8 claims and Defendant's defenses; (d) preparing Plaintiffs' written discovery to Defendant; (e) 9 conducting an analysis of Defendant's net worth; (f) negotiating the parameters of the class-wide 10 settlement; (g) preparing the parties' class action settlement agreement and the proposed notice to 11 the class; (h) conferring repeatedly with Ms. Harper, Ms. Emerson, and defense counsel; (i) 12 preparing Plaintiffs' unopposed motion for preliminary approval of the class action settlement, and 13 14 the accompanying proposed order and subsequent statements of recent decisions supporting the 15 same; (j) preparing for and participating in the hearing before this Court on Plaintiffs' unopposed 16 motion for preliminary approval; (k) preparing Plaintiffs' motion for final approval of the class 17 action settlement and accompanying proposed order; (l) preparing Plaintiffs' motion for an award 18 of attorneys' fees and reimbursement of expenses; (m) preparing the instant declaration in support 19 of the fee and expense award; (n) conferring with the class administrator regarding distribution of 20 21 notice; and (o) conferring with class members to answer questions about the settlement and related 22 process. 23 33. Based on the quality of my firm's work, the reasonable hours expended to get to 24 this point, and the benefits obtained for both Plaintiffs and absent class members in light of the 25 risks attendant to continued litigation, the requested fee and expense award is reasonable and 26 27 should be approved. 28 34. In short, GDR worked extremely diligently to develop this case, obtain a favorable -8- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 settlement for Plaintiffs and the class, and then shepherd this case through preliminary and final 2 approval, all while limiting the attorneys' fees—and expenses—incurred and preserving judicial 3 resources. 4 35. As of the date of this declaration, GDR attorneys have billed a total of 138.6 hours 5 litigating this case. I, as the lead attorney on this case, have billed a total of 62.8 hours. Three of 6 7 the firm's other attorneys, Michael L. Greenwald, James L. Davidson, and Jesse S. Johnson, billed 8 a total of 75.8 hours. More specifically, Mr. Greenwald has billed 2.5 hours, Mr. Davidson has 9 billed 5.3 hours, and Mr. Johnson has billed 68 hours.2 10 36. Mr. Johnson actively litigated this matter at my side, while the hours spent by Mr. 11 Greenwald and Mr. Davidson largely entailed reviewing and revising pleadings, and engaging in 12 litigation and settlement strategy with myself and Mr. Johnson. 13 14 37. The time included herein is evidenced by my firm's electronically stored time 15 records entered contemporaneously with the respective task to which they relate, each of which 16 accurately reflects the work performed. Copies of those time records are attached as Exhibit 1. 17 38. I, along with Mr. Greenwald and Mr. Davidson, bill at a rate of $400 per hour—a 18 rate specifically approved for class counsel in recent FDCPA class litigation in this District and 19 also in the Southern District of Florida. See Schuchardt, 2016 WL 1701349, at *14-15 ("Given 20 21 that Class Counsel has been appointed in numerous class actions, including FDCPA cases; courts 22 have awarded them exactly the same rates requested here in previous cases; and courts in this 23 District found similar rates appropriate in FDCPA cases, Class Counsel's requested rates are 24 reasonable."); Gonzalez, 2015 WL 738329, at *4 ("Defendant shall pay Class Counsel [Greenwald 25 26 2 Of note, and to avoid any duplication of efforts, class counsel have reviewed their time records and 27 marked as "non-billable" any time which could arguably be duplicative. Therefore, any such arguably duplicative time is not included in the total lodestar amount calculated herein. This amounts to a voluntary 28 lodestar reduction of about 24 hours in this matter. -9- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 Davidson Radbil PLLC] $65,000.00 for attorneys' fees and expenses, which is based in part upon 2 Class Counsel's reasonable hourly rate of $400 per hour."). 3 39. Judge Corley of this District similarly approved Mr. Johnson's hourly rate of $350 4 as reasonable for FDCPA class litigation. See Schuchardt, 2016 WL 1701349, at *14-15. 5 40. Additionally, I conservatively estimate that this case will require an additional 30 6 7 hours of my time to complete. That time will be spent preparing for, traveling to, and attending the 8 final approval hearing set for August 4, 2016, preparing any necessary reply papers in support of 9 final approval or the fee and expense request, finalizing the settlement, conferring with class 10 members and the class administrator regarding distribution of the settlement checks, and any other 11 related matters necessary to bring this case to its conclusion. 12 41. Accordingly, multiplying the hours incurred by each attorney by his hourly rate— 13 14 and including my additional estimated time necessary to conclude this matter—yields a total 15 estimated lodestar of $64,040.00.3 16 42. I respectfully submit that the requested fee and expense award of $45,000.00 is 17 eminently reasonable for this certified class action, particularly given the meaningful cash benefits 18 obtained for Plaintiffs and absent class members, and the change in Defendant's business practices 19 that will benefit consumers for years to come. 20 21 43. Further supporting its reasonableness, Plaintiffs' request represents a nearly 30% 22 discount on the anticipated lodestar in this litigation. 23 Litigation Expenses Borne by GDR 24 44. Also noteworthy, subsumed within class counsel's fee and expense request is the 25 26 27 3 To reiterate, this calculation does not include the 24 hours voluntarily waived by class counsel— worth approximately $9,600 at my hourly rate—to account for any potential duplication of efforts. See 28 supra note 2. -10- DECLARATION OF AARON D. RADBIL IN Case No. 3:15-cv-01114-HSG SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN AWARD OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES 9 1 reimbursement of litigation expenses reasonably incurred in connection with the prosecution of 2 this case. These expenses are reflected in the books and records maintained by undersigned counsel 3 and are an accurate recording of the expenses incurred. In total, to this point, class counsel have 4 incurred reimbursable litigation expenses in the amount of $2,334.02. 5 45. These expenses include the filing fee for the complaint ($400), the application fee 6 7 for my admission pro hac vice ($305), service of process of the complaint and amended complaint 8 ($87), travel costs associated with the preliminary approval hearing ($1,130.82), and travels costs 9 associated with the upcoming final approval hearing ($411.20). 10 46. Class counsel will also incur additional expenses associated with travel to San 11 Francisco for the final fairness hearing, including airport parking in Austin, Texas, transportation 12 to and from the San Francisco airport to downtown, and meals. Plus, a hotel stay may be necessary 13 14 in connection with counsel's travel. Thus, class counsel conservatively estimates that these 15 additional expenses, to the extent necessary, would total approximately $500.00, which would 16 result in total expenses of approximately $2,834.02. 17 47. Class counsel also have incurred additional reimbursable expenses, such as for 18 photocopies, long distance telephone calls, postage, and computerized legal research. Those 19 expenses, while not separately itemized herein, are subsumed within the $45,000.00 fee and 20 21 expense request. 22 48. For the reasons set forth herein and in the accompanying motion, I respectfully 23 submit that: (i) the parties' class settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate, and should be 24 approved; and (ii) Plaintiffs' motion for an award of attorneys' fees and reimbursement of 25 expenses should be granted. 26 27 28 -11- DECLARATION OF AARON D.
