What others have said about Hon. Irma Poole Asberry


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA12223
Judge Asberry is the best judge in all of Riverside County. If you are assigned to her, you've hit the jackpot. She exemplifies what judges are suppose to be - fair, impartial, intelligent. I can't say enough good things about her. I wish I could be assigned to her for every case I have.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: CA11482
J. Asberry is a consummately fair judge, even tempered, and diligent in her obligations. It has been clear to me in my several appearances that she has read all of the pleadings before her and thought carefully about them. She also takes care to review exhibits attached to pleadings and knows them as well as the practitioners.
She has a very calm demeanor and can be subtly forceful when she needs to be, without being heavy handed. It is also very clear she works hard to be fair to all sides and is careful with substantial decisions.
The one trait she shares with most judges is her adherence to the tentative decisions regardless of argument. Argument is rather perfunctory.

Comment #: CA5014
New to criminal, I was concerned she would err on the side of pro-prosecution but was happily proven wrong. She does not appreciate courtroom antics or theatrics and was very fair at sentencing.
