What others have said about Hon. Richard W. Kirby



Comment #: OK1744
This judge was so rude and disrespectful to us. We went in for a guardianship signed everything and he filed out paperwork for DHS to pick this child up. He called a deputy in the court room and detained us without cause and called DHS. This Judge made us feel like the worst people in the world. He may be a good Judge but he is very Bias and disrespectful to the average person. I will never again try to do the right thing in Oklahoma County and take care of a child if I ever have to go before this man.


Comment #: OK1628
He is bias and refuses to allow defendants to speak or defend themselves. He loses his temper and bangs his fist on bench while yelling at defendants.


Comment #: OK1558
Yesterday, I observed Judge Kirby demonstrating thoughtfulness, kindness, patience, and respect to all attorneys and litigants (some Pro Se) who came before him. His level of patience with Pro Se litigants was exceptional and well beyond the call of duty.


Comment #: OK872
too full of himself, does not know how to listen to anyone else. seems to care very little for the children he is supposed to help.
