Liberty J. Weyandt is a partner at The Lynch Law Group. Her practice is focused in Family Law, Collaborative Law, Employment Litigation and Estates and Probate.

 In her Family Law practice, Liberty handles matters related to divorce, equitable distribution, support, child custody, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and protection from abuse matters. In addition to handling traditional family law litigation matters in Court, Liberty is also a trained Collaborative Law Attorney and Mediator. Through her Collaborative Law practice, clients can choose an alternative dispute resolution process in which the parties and their attorneys work together to resolve their disputes respectfully and civilly, without ever going to Court. Her Collaborative practice is not limited to divorce, as civil, probate and employment matters can also be handled collaboratively.

 In her employment law practice, Liberty handles cases involving a multitude of prohibited work place discrimination and harassment charges under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, such as gender, sexual, religious, national origin, race, and pregnancy discrimination and harassment, in addition to matters under the Family Medical Leave Act, the American’s with Disabilities Act, the Wage and Labor Act, and the Age Discrimination Act. She also can assist clients with review and/or drafting of employment agreements; severance agreements, dependant contractor agreements and non-compete agreements.  Liberty is currently developing a Civil Collaborative Law practice, as the Civil Chair of the Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania, to provide clients with a valuable alternative to traditional litigation.

 Liberty also is able to assist clients in estate planning, by drafting Wills, Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives/Living Wills, as well as estate probate.

Josephine
I would have not been able to have any time with my daughter. I now have 2 weeks vacation, holidays and other special events. Liberty was also very supportive and lifted my spirits, I always felt better after our discussions, about the challenges we were facing. The only disappointment was not being able to give my daughter my daughter my last name. The judge wouldn't hear the case. Obviously I wish that would have went different.

Knows how to solve the problem
I was in a very disorienting situation with my employer and in a position that needed immediate help. I hired Liberty and from the initial consultation she knew exactly what to do to help me. From that point forward and until final contracts were signed, she had the expertise in the employment field to handle each step of the way. I would recommend her services to anyone who may be facing a critical situation involving employment relationships.

wonderful,personal service
Liberty helped me through a recent domestic break up. Not only did she give sound advice, she listened to what I wanted. She also made personal visits to where I was staying since it was near her home to bring me paperwork to sign. She even went a retrieved my pets for me! could not ask for a better lawyer

Child Support
Liberty was so helpful from start to finish when dealing with child support for my two children. She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you step in her office and gives you logical/sound advice. Also, she makes you "calm" in what can be a very stressful situation and is very knowledgeable about the laws, etc. I highly recommend Liberty to help with any family issues/challenges you may have.

Family and Estate Planning Services
Ms. Weyandt was a tremendous asset to our family in navigating the legal framework of estate planning. Her legal proficiency and advice helped us to better protect our loved ones should the need arise. She was thorough, personable, and approachable with our questions. I would highly recommend her legal expertise to anyone seeking similar services.

Top notch
Excellent. Got my divorce completed quickly and I was very happy with the terms. She is one of the few ethical divorce awyers in the area. I had prior experience with other divorce attornies who were clearly primarily interested in making as much money off my case as possible. Liberty's goal was to help me through a very difficult time in my life quickly and effectively.
