He was born near Highland Springs, California, in southwestern Lake County on July 11, 1874. Lea attended Lakeport Academy in Lakeport, and Stanford University. He obtained a degree in law from the University of Denver, in Denver, Colorado, in 1898. Lea was admitted to the bar the same year and began practicing in Santa Rosa, California. He served as district attorney of Sonoma County, 1907–1917, and as president of the District Attorney's Association of California in 1916 and 1917.

He was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-fifth and to the fifteen succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1917 – January 3, 1949). Lea served as chairman of the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce (Seventy-fifth through Seventy-ninth Congresses). He was not a candidate for renomination in 1948.
