KEVIN MCHALE is an associate at Youman & Caputo. McHale, a Philadelphia-area native and former Ivy League student-athlete, vigorously represents and fights for catastrophically injured victims and their families.

McHale has significant experience as a litigator and is comfortable handling high-stakes litigation and high-pressure cases. Before joining Youman & Caputo, he practiced at an Am Law 200 defense firm, specifically in the firm’s well-respected medical malpractice group, where he successfully litigated complex catastrophic injury and medical malpractice cases from start to finish. McHale uses the valuable skills and insight he gained as a defense attorney to effectively represent his Philadelphia medical malpractice victims and their families.

McHale graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in criminology, and he lettered multiple years as a member of the Men’s Heavyweight Rowing team. McHale was also a two-time national champion in high school at St. Joseph’s Prep, and he relies on the same work ethic and competitive spirit that fueled his rowing career to drive his success in the courtroom.

After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, McHale earned a full merit scholarship to Villanova Law School. While at Villanova, McHale excelled in a litigation-based curriculum, including courses designed to test his pre-trial motion practice, deposition skills and overall trial advocacy abilities. He was a member of the Villanova Environmental Law Journal, and one of McHale’s articles was chosen and selected for publication in the Texas Environmental Law Journal, overseen by the State Bar of Texas. The article was selected over similar pieces written by seasoned attorneys.

McHale was raised in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and now resides in Center City, Philadelphia.

She continued to work as an attorney on the defense side for several years defending complex toxic tort, motor vehicle, trucking and construction cases. Andrea’s experience representing insurance companies has proven to be invaluable, giving her a unique understanding of how to develop cases and anticipate strategy with the defense perspective in mind.

Andrea has an intimate understanding of how an accident or malpractice can affect a person and their family. Her strong communication skills enable her to translate the effects of an injury to a jury to maximize compensation for her clients. She understands what is necessary to obtain a great result and will not quit until she accomplishes that goal.

Andrea has successfully represented injured victims and litigated numerous claims at the municipal, arbitration and trial court levels in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She has been successful at resolving cases at mediation and binding arbitration as well.  Andrea serves as a certified Arbitrator for the Court of Common Pleas Philadelphia Compulsory Arbitration program.

In 2019 and 2020, Andrea was named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyers “Rising Star,” an award bestowed on the top 2.5% of all lawyers in Pennsylvania under the age of 40.

Andrea is a graduate of Widener University School of Law. As a student, she was elected by her class to be the Student Bar Association Representative. As an alumnae, she works to give back to the school volunteering as a member of the alumni board. Andrea is a graduate of Temple University where she was a double major in Communications and Political Science and a member of the Temple University Diamond Gems Dance Team.

Andrea is currently licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the United States District Court for New Jersey, and the State of New Jersey.

Outside of work, Andrea enjoys traveling, summers at the NJ shore, and taking advantage of everything the great city of Philadelphia has to offer. A former marketing professional who worked in concerts and radio prior to law school, Andrea is an avid music fan and can be found attending concerts large and small around the city.  Andrea enjoys challenges outside of the court room as well, and has completed the New York, Delaware and Philadelphia marathons. Andrea lives in center city, Philadelphia.
