Attorney Carl Starrett Obtains $39,000 Judgment

The Law Offices of Carl H. Starrett II has successfully obtained a default judgment against Joseph M. Encarnacion ("Encarnacion") in the amount of $39,617.62. The Court entered the judgment on December 15, 2006.

The lawsuit was filed on July 12, 2006 on behalf of Dominador C. Mauricio ("Mauricio"). The lawsuit alleged that Encarnacion failed to repay a large sum of money borrowed from Mauricio. Encarnacion failed to respond to the lawsuit and the Court entered a judgment for the loan balance of $34,000 plus interest, legal fees and court costs.

Civil judgments in California collect interest at the rate rate of 10% per year. In this case, interest will accrue at the rate of $3961.76 per year or $10.85 per day until paid. Efforts to collect the judgment will begin immediately.
