Biography

The Hon. Irma Poole Asberry is a judge for the Riverside County Superior Court in California. She was appointed to the bench by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007. She filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Thomas Douglass, Jr. (Ret.). At the time of her appointment, Judge Asberry held the distinction of being the first African American female judge to serve in Riverside County.

She is a registered Democrat.

Judge Asberry received her B.S. from the University of California, Riverside in 1976. She went on to earn her J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1979.

After law school, Asberry joined the law firm of Butterwick, Bright, Pettis & Cunnison, where she practiced bankruptcy law. At the time of her departure from the firm in 1988, Asberry was serving as a partner and had transitioned into the practice of family law. Asberry then opened her own firm, where she continued in the practice of bankruptcy and family law. She remained in that capacity until her appointment to the Superior Court in 2007.

While on the bench, Judge Asberry has presided over a civil calendar at the Historic Courthouse.

She has been an active member of the Riverside County Bar Association and also served as its past-president.
