How does Martin Estrada run a Big Law litigation practice, raise two young boys and maintain a healthy marriage with a federal prosecutor? Texting.

Estrada, a partner in the Los Angeles office of Munger, Tolles & Olson, says the key to making life run smoothly is lots of communication throughout the workday with his wife, Kerry O’Neill, an assistant U.S. attorney. “We’re constantly texting and calling each other to make sure everything’s covered, to make sure each of us is taken care of,” said Estrada, 40.
