  1. Professor Jay C. Carlisle, II

    Irwin was an old, valued and trusted friend of mine for over forty years. He was a highly respected and appreciated lawyer who was an active leader in the Jewish Lawyer’s Guild and the New York State Bar Association. I was privileged to be one of his guests at a dinner in his honor sponsored by the City of New York (CUNY University) which presented him a distinguished alumni award! Irwin will be sorely missed my many, including his clients, colleagues from the bench and bar, friends, family and those he supported and assisted by his good works. May he Rest In Peace!

  2. Greg Perrin

    Irwin was a dear friend to my Father and I. He also served as my lawyer for a time and was an excellent attorney. He was a wonderful man and he is missed by all who knew him.

    Rest In Peace dear friend.
