What others have said about Hon. Charles Irwin



Comment #: AZ1510
Everything that has been mentioned against him before he has since reversed on. Very Pro Se! Especially females.


Comment #: AZ722
He literally told us he wanted us to pay to see him even though he was going to do nothing to help. He is the most unethical judge I have ever witnessed. He has been spotted chatting it up with attorneys often.

Comment #: AZ622
Judge Irwin can't be called "pro-defendant" or "pro-plaintiff" because he's "pro-man". I was warned by over a dozen people, pre-divorce hearing, that Judge Irwin was extremely pro-male (and his being censured twice by the AZ Supreme Court for sexually harassing females under him) yet, I couldn't believe a judge would be SO biased. Apparently, he is. If you are a woman living in Cochise County and want a divorce, either do whatever you can do to stay away from Judge Irwin or have it transferred to Pima County. This man is a sexist to the nth degree.


Comment #: AZ582
Judge Charles Irwin has excluded evidence that hindered me from receiving a full and fair hearing, which denied me a full and fair administration of justice. Judge Irwin favors plaintiffs with counsel, and shows prejudice against the unrepresented. His demeanor towards pro se litigators is disdainful. He also has a past history of sexual harassment towards female court employees, and has been caught drinking after hours on courthouse grounds, which has been documented in the Sierra Vista Herald.

Comment #: AZ554
Racist, sexist, imperious, cruel, abusive, short-fused, humorless, sanctimonious, and regularly engages in ex parte communication with select male (only) lawyers; he is abusive to the unrepresented.
