Client Reviews

I was introduced to Irwin when facing a regulatory issue which, at the time, felt overwhelming. From my first meeting with him, Irwin gained my trust and explained all options and potential outcomes in a way I could comprehend. He was there to talk me through any questions and concerns I had until we decided on the best option for me. On top of that, he is a genuinely caring person and has remained someone I go to for guidance throughout the years. I could not recommend him highly enough!

- Securities Industry

I found Irwin to be my advocate, in the best sense of the word. He truly cares about his clients, and because of his work ethic and perceptiveness, was an exceptional litigator in my lengthy and complicated case.

- Business Owner

I was referred to Irwin by a colleague who is in the securities business. I cannot thank him enough!. Irwin has been amazing…my case was complicated but Irwin has a way of looking at situations through different lenses and gets results. I can’t say enough about his “bedside manor”. As good as he is as an attorney, he’s an equally good person. He actually cares.

- Securities Industry

Irwin is a rare breed of lawyer, he’s honest, straightforward, smart and doesn’t over bill


Irwin has been my go-to lawyer for arbitration and regulatory matters for years. He’s smart, cost-efficient and gets results. I highly recommend him.
