Zuratti Management

Zuratti is a world-class premiere sports management agency with locations in Colorado, California and North Carolina.

President & founder Michael Chelala is a man who prides himself on treating his clients as his own brothers and sisters.  Michael had a vision of creating his own extended family. That family is now known to him and the world as “Zuratti”.

A product of the inner city streets of Cleveland, Michael is regarded by NFL front offices as one of the fiercest negotiators in the industry. General Managers know to expect a battle when they draft any of his clients. Michael’s financial and Accounting background gives him a leg up on other agents with law backgrounds. He simply does NOT leave money on the table.

Prior to launching his new family, ZURATTI, Michael joined forces with Lamont Smith in the representation of several Hall of famers including BARRY SANDERS, JEROME BETTIS and EDDIE GEORGE. At All-Pro Sports, he rose to leadership roles in contract negotiations, NFL relations, procurement of marketing and endorsement deals, pre-draft training, talent acquisition and client relations.

Cephus has spent the last decade serving as a Trial Lawyer resolving multi-million dollar cases for families with catastrophic injuries. Cephus is a HIGH POWERED ATTORNEY who is regularly asked to lend his legal knowledge to the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association.

Cephus brings his passion for sports and entertainment and his wealth of knowledge as a Certified NFL and NBA Agent.
