Brendan Barrett Lupetin

About me

Brendan focuses his practice on protecting the rights of people and small businesses injured by the carelessness of others. Brendan is one of only eleven lawyers in Western Pennsylvania invited to be an invited active member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), a prestigious national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges.  This follows his 2011 induction into the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County- an invitation only organization limited to 250 of the most exceptional civil trial lawyers in Allegheny County.  Brendan is “privileged to serve members of our community injured through no fault of their own due to the disregard of safety rules.” Brendan’s singular goal and passion as a lawyer is to improve community safety through zealous advocacy of his clients civil rights. When community safety rules are broken innocent people can get hurt. Fortunately, when avoidable tragedy arises, the attorneys of Meyers Evans & Associates, of whom Brendan is a proud member, are there to enforce the rules, protect the injured and bring about just outcomes.


Brendan prides himself on finding the best solutions for his clients’ legal dilemmas, often bringing about life-improving settlements. There are, however, times when wrongdoers simply refuse to accept responsibility for their actions and force the injured and innocent to prove their case to a jury. Brendan points out, “While many attorneys fear having their client’s fate determined by apparent strangers, I believe in our jury system and have the utmost faith that our community’s conscience will enforce important safety rules and ensure that justice is always done.” Brendan’s faith combined with his dynamic ability to tell a simple story that people care about make him a powerful trial advocate for his clients. These attributes recently culminated in bringing about a spectacular verdict in Federal Court of more than $6 million for a small local business. This amazing outcome, comprised of an unheard of $5 million in punitive damages, was chronicled in a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article titled, “O’Hara firm wins $6 million verdict over testing of space heaters.

    If I had to assemble the best and brightest legal team to represent a loved one in a medical malpractice case, I would choose Brendan to lead the team. In addition to knowing all of the "ins and outs" of the very complex field that is medical malpractice, Brendan has an even greater skill--he knows people. He knows how people think and he know how they react, which means he knows how to sway them. If you need a seasoned, effective litigator in your corner, Brendan is your man.
