The debtors filed for relief under chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, on an emergency basis, through a petition filed by their former counsel. Some five months later, counsel withdrew as the attorney of record and filed an application for compensation. An agreed order allowing fees was entered, and counsel filed a motion to reduce the agreed order to a final judgment.
