In conjunction with four other members of the newly formed Collaborative Law Committee, Lea Anderson addressed lawyers of the ACBA of the benefits of Collaborative Law. More commonly known as a resolution-based approach to divorce, the presentation, “Collaborative Law is Catching on in PA, and it is Not Just for Family Lawyers,” provided strategies for using the Collaborative Method in other areas of law, such as business-related disputes.
Since 2007, Lea has concentrated her Family Law practice in the methods of Collaborative Law, though she remains an active litigator in traditional divorce matters as well. Lea is an active and founding member of CLASP (Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania), which has been the driving force in bringing the collaborative process to the area. She is also a member of the IACP (International Academy of Collaborative Professionals) and serves as the first Vice-Chairperson of the ACBA’s Collaborative Law Committee, which was formed in 2011
