Phil Kearney is an Assistant United States Attorney in his native San Francisco, California.  During 2007 and 2008, the U.S. Justice Department loaned him to the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.  From his post in The Hague, Netherlands, Kearney helped prosecute the former prime minister of Kosovo for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Before that, Kearney was hired as one of a handful of “international prosecutors” for the UN Mission in Kosovo.  While serving in that post in 2001 and 2002, he prosecuted war crimes and human trafficking offenses in the district courts of Kosovo and Belgrade.

In 1981, Kearney earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Davis, followed by a doctorate in law from the Hastings campus of the University of California in 1984. After law school, he joined the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office as a trial attorney.  He served there for 17 years, finishing a distinguished career on the homicide team. Kearney is married with one son.
