I have worked with Mr. Van Aalten on several official creditors' committees in Chapter 11. His involvement in the Mervyn's committee was extraordinary which resulted in a significant recovery to unsecured creditors. Seth is very professional and knowledgeable in his handling of committee matters, and I consider him to be one of the finest young attorneys in the country.
