Gerald A. Kearney
I graduated from the Law School of the University of New Mexico in 1985. I am a member in good standing with the Washington State Bar.
I am admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the State of Washington. I am a member of the Kitsap County Bar Association and the Real Property, Probate and Trust Section and the Creditor/Debtor Section of the Washington State Bar Association. I opened my practice in Kingston, Washington in 1992. I now operate from my home office in Hansville.
Prior to opening my office, I worked for Kitsap County Department of Community Development as the first Administrator of the newly formed Open Space Preservation Program. In this position, I ran a successful public information and education program; worked with diverse and involved citizens; and gained a thorough knowledge of the workings of our local county government.
I was certified as a mediator and volunteered my services at the Dispute Resolution Center of Kitsap County. The Dispute Resolution Center provides Kitsap County residents with options for resolving disputes themselves, out-of-court, voluntarily, nonviolently, inexpensively and within the community. I am also an approved arbitrator with the Kitsap County Mandatory Arbitration Program.
