Grabbing values from a converted lead to apply to related account?

I have a convet lead trigger that creates an account, contact, and case.  I have values in the lead that I want to apply to the account and case.  What syntax do I use to grab data from the converted lead to put in a variable so I can applie it to the other records later.


(I need to do this to the account because the standard lead mapping is already mapping to the contact and I need it to map to both account and contact... its a pick list value)


The way I've handled this in the past is to create a formula field that copies the value from the real field that is already mapped to the contact, and then map the formula field to the account field.
