From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Len Tillem (short for Leonard M. Tillem) is an attorney in Sonoma, California and radio broadcaster on KGO 810 AM San Francisco. He is notable for being KGO's "Radio Lawyer of the Air." On his program, Tillem answers general legal questions submitted by the listening audience.

Tillem began his radio career in 1990 on KVON in Napa, California, and was later on KSRO in Santa Rosa, California.

On Sunday, January 2, 2000, he began his regular program on KGO with a three-hour broadcast starting at 4 PM, replacing a "best of" broadcast of Dr. Laura Schlessinger's program on the KGO lineup. In June 2000, Tillem's program was expanded to Saturdays and Sundays, 4-7 PM, after Dr. Schlessinger's syndicated program was moved to KGO's sister station KSFO AM 560.

Starting on November 27, 2006, KGO expanded The Len Tillem Program to a weekday program from 12 PM to 12:45 PM. The Saturday program was dropped, but the Sunday 4-7 PM program was retained. The weekday's unusual 45 minute format is due to KGO carrying Paul Harvey's nationally syndicated 15 minute segment at 12:45 PM. In January 2009, Paul Harvey's 15 minute segment was moved to the sister station to free a full hour for the Len Tillem Program.

Tillem's show is one of the most popular ones on KGO. His web page includes a number of favorite calls selected by Tillem.

Len Tillem also co-writes, with attorney Rosamonde McNichol, a newspaper advice column on elder law and estate planning and administration issues. The column is syndicated locally within the northern half of the San Francisco Bay Area and appears monthly in the San Francisco Chronicle, and weekly in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the Napa Valley Register, the Sonoma Index Tribune, the Vacaville Reporter, the Kenwood Press, the Clearlake Observer, and the Lake County Record Bee.

Tillem obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the New York University School of Law and was admitted to the State Bar of California on January 18, 1972.

Tillem's niece Joya Tillem is the wife of actor/director Jon Favreau.[1]
