Born in Brazil in 1951, Handel immigrated to the U.S. with his parents, when he was five years old. He grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, learned English without the benefit of a bilingual education program, and became a leading reproductive law expert. As a result of his assertive style on radio and television discussing reproductive law, he was offered his first radio job at 34 years old. He took the offer and began to address listeners’ legal issues on-air. In 1989, Handel on the Law debuted on KFI AM 640/Los Angeles and in 1998, the show went national. Premiere Radio Networks assumed distribution of Handel on the Law in April 2004, and today the program airs on nearly 200 radio stations.
