Very helpful!
I called the law firm for some general information and left a message. I was so happy to have Katie call me back and spend a generous amount of time discussing things with me and not making me feel rushed. Thank you so much for your time and we will be coming to you for help with our Social Security issues!

Miracle Attorney with Awesome Paralegals
Mr. Irwin and his team (Denise and Robin) are awesome and very approachable. My case was difficult yet Mr. Irwin's team never lost sight of me the client. Even though my case took so long (almost a year) they plowed forward. This office was also very much in contact with me, to say they are very accessible when I needed them or had a meaningless question or if i was frustrated with the whole process. Even though they experienced the same trials and tribulation during this COVID-19 outbreak the office put me first. I think this attorney and team could actually walk on water and would for their clients. Thank you Mr. Irwin, Denise and Robin, you have made an impact in my life.

Long shot success
Mr Irwin was willing to take my case when many others would not touch it due to my unlikely chances of winning. I was far to young and my ailment is relatively unknown but he settled may worries and promised he would do all that he could. our road was not easy but he continued to fight for me ultimately winning our case. without Mr Irwin and his amazing staff i would not have been able to return to some semblance of my normal life, I can't thank them enough.

Would Recommend for Guardianship Cases
Emmett has been great to work with during my family's guardianship instance. He is well known in his space and we have found that to be very valuable during the whole process. I would suggest contacting for more information for your instance.

Review for Emmett Irwin, Esquire
In dealing with Mr. Irwin, I have found him to be very ethical, understanding and extremely competent. I have been in business over 25 years and to me these traits are at the top of my list when it comes to working with an attorney. He is a man I can trust to get the job done without having to micromanage. Keep up the GREAT work!

disability case
My experience with this attorney was terrible after being in the hospital from January 3rd 2022 for three months with Covid on a ventilator on a feeding essentially in a coma i was fortunate to come out of it after rehab i went home still too weak to work i could barely walk up the stairs i consulted this firm and they told me what a 'great case' i had after 4 months i called to inquire about my case and no one ever got back to me when i received an email from the Irwin people telling me they could no longer represent me no reason no explanation nothing about my case i finally was able to get one of Irwin's assistants on the phone who was rude disrespectful and wouldn't answer any of my questions when she then hung up on me i received another email from Irwin stating he didn't like how i spoke to his indignant assistant so basically he was the victim and i was the bad guy with 'friends' like this who needs enemies these people are despicable they treat you with no dignity no respect and discard you like trash then blame you! Listen folks run from these people they are ambulance chasers slip and fall lawyers the scum of the earth
