Workers’ Compensation



Mr. Irwin specializes in employment, liability defense, subrogation, and workers’ compensation litigation. He has invaluable litigation experience in prosecuting and defending hundreds of bench and jury trials before state and federal courts and administrative agencies. He takes seriously the role of counselor – helping companies formulate sound preventative measures to avoid disputes prior to their inception. However, when litigation is appropriate, he believes in an aggressive team-oriented approach combined with the experience necessary to bring about a successful conclusion.


Mr. Irwin is a native of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  He began his litigation practice in public service with the City of Colorado Springs, providing counsel to all City departments including airport, fire, hospitals, human resources, police and the largest four-service municipality owned utility in the nation. He was the primary litigator in employment, subrogation, and workers’ compensation matters. In 2007 he was recruited to a large private firm specializing in workers’ compensation, subrogation and general insurance defense litigation. In 2009 he formed Irwin, P.C., a law firm specializing in all aspects of employer needs, including employment law advisement and litigation, subrogation, and workers’ compensation. Wanting to provide his clients with the advantages of a top tier full service law firm, Mr. Irwin joined Senter Goldfarb & Rice LLC in 2018.
