Divorces don't have winners or losers. They're messy disputes over assets and kids. The lawyers who handle them? Many just want to help their clients move on with their lives as quickly as possible.

When Gabriel Cheong—owner of a small family law firm in Boston—graduated from Northeastern Law School at the start of the Great Recession, his back was against the wall. Today he's proven that he can build a sustainable business by putting client needs first. In this episode, Gabriel explains how his use of technology and fixed fees maximizes time spent on his clients' legal dilemmas.

Gabriel’s practice does not reflect what you see on Law & Order. He devotes most of his time to paperwork rather than arguing in court. He mixes traditional litigation with mediation, conciliation, and guardian ad litem. With this kind of work, Gabriel experiences emotional ups and downs. Yet he observes that they’re two sides of the same coin. After all, his job is to help clients whose lives are being torn apart.

This episode is hosted by Aaron Taylor, a law professor at St. Louis University.
