Accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable!
My small business is from out of state and turned to Stephen for help with a trademark issue. Throughout the whole process, he was very accommodating to my schedule and budget, prompt with his communication, and completely stayed on top of everything going on.

Client Review
Our firm is not from the Nashville area and we needed local counsel for mediation. Mr. Zralek was referred to us by our primary counsel and to say that we were pleased with his performance is an understatement. Thanks again Stephen for your attention to detail, responsiveness and knowledge of the issues.
