"And from everything I read, your background as far as the guardianship work you've done, the work you've done has certainly propared you for this judgeship. And I wish you well."

Gerald Stern, former chair of the Commission on Judicial Conduct wrote in a letter to the editor of the Journal News that "[Charlie Devlin is a] highly qualified and outstanding jurist who has demonstrated integrity, intelligence, knowledge of the law, excellent temperament, a strong work ethic and sensitivity . . .

Charlie Devlin is and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have met in my long career in law.
