CSP History


Founding director, Bill Handel, started his practice of surrogacy in 1980, through the Law Offices of William Handel. In 1986, the Center for Surrogate Parenting, Inc., was incorporated. Bill Handel and Karen Synesiou are the co-directors and co-owners of CSP. With our over years of experience, we are proud to help a wide variety of intended parents.

We believe that surrogate parenting should be a collaboration of professionals who guide the entire process. The team should consist of doctors, psychologists or psychotherapists, attorneys and an agency that is the liaison between all the participants. CSP has created a "team" that is unsurpassed anywhere in the world. CSP is unique because we have created a team that is involved with each surrogacy arrangement from beginning to end.

Over the years we have had the privilege of assisting intended parents from a variety of countries and cultures. It is imperative that couples thoroughly research their choices, work only with skilled professionals who have excellent reputations, and choose an agency with extensive experience. CSP meets these criteria and has a world-wide reputation as being the leader in the field of surrogacy.
