Anderson

Former Jefferson County District Court Judge Leland Anderson joined the professional staff of arbiters at Judicial Arbiters Group in February 2007. Anderson served on the trial bench for ten years in a general combined trial assignment handling civil, domestic, and felony criminal cases. His caseload included complex domestic division of property, construction defect, trademark infringement, insurance coverage, personal injury, and professional malpractice matters.
 
Anderson’s commitment to the legal profession is clearly demonstrated by his many awards and recognition for his public service. He was recognized by the Colorado senate for pro bono public services for his effort in resolving the tragic 1987 Berthoud Pass Bus Accident case with the State of Colorado, and has received the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice and the Award of Merit from the 1st Judicial District Bar Association. Anderson served in the United States Marine Corps, where he was recognized as Platoon Honor Man (tops in a platoon of 75 recruits). Following law school, he also served as a Judge Advocate General’s Corps officer in both the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Army reserves.
