Carlos A. Kelly Appointed to The Florida Bar's Eminent Domain Committee
The law firm of Henderson Franklin is pleased to announce that Carlos A. Kelly, a stockholder with the firm, was recently appointed to serve on The Florida Bar's Eminent Domain Committee by the then President-elect (and now President) of The Florida Bar, Frank Angones, for the 2008 term.

According to The Florida Bar, "the scope and function of the Eminent Domain Committee is to study and keep informed of recent developments in the field of condemnation of private property for public use by governmental agencies or private companies who have the power of eminent domain. It should keep the members of the Bar informed of developments of great significance in this field, maintain liaison with private companies and governmental agencies who have and use the power of eminent domain, and study and consider legislation, law or problems in the area of eminent domain law as developed by the committee or assigned by the president or the Board of Governors."

Kelly represents individuals and entities at the trial court level. He focuses his practice on real property disputes, including eminent domain matters. He also represents clients in business tort claims, creditors’ rights matters, and contract-based disputes.

Kelly takes a keen interest in eminent domain matters, having published an article in the October 2006 edition of The Florida Bar Journal, "How to Obtain an Order of Taking", which discusses how to obtain an order of taking in eminent domain. Most recently, he tried a condemnation case to a six-person jury in a mock trial at a seminar organized by the Association of Eminent Domain Professionals.

Lea E. Anderson joins the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals
In addition to her current membership with CLASP (Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania), Lea Anderson has recently joined the IACP (International Academy of Collaborative Professionals). To qualify for membership, Lea, a shareholder at Goehring, Rutter & Boehm, has completed training in collaborative law and mediation.

The Collaborative Law process establishes a positive divorce environment and is acclaimed for “promoting respect, placing the needs of children first and keeping control of the process with the spouses.” The methods and strategies outlined by collaborative law allow all parties involved to make the transition from married life to single life a healthy one, viewing the divorce as a new beginning, as opposed to an end. Collaborative law is respectful and aware of the needs of all affected individuals, as not only the divorcees are affected.

Dedicated to the needs of her clients and thoroughly believing in positive outcomes for families in divorce, Lea has joined these associations to further conform her practice of family law to the strategies of collaborative law. She believes the collaborative process provides her clients with healthy, positive outcomes in post-divorce situations. These strategies minimize the conflict that is often found in the traditional divorce model, are more cost effective, and enforce a more controlled, constructive environment.
