Proactive and effective legal representation for your business can lessen, and often prevent, disruption of operations and keep your company viable. Keri Trask Lazarus has more than 15 years of experience as a lawyer in Salem and has earned her MBA as well. Two common areas of business law that the Law Offices of Keri Trask Lazarus practice are business formation and contract disputes.
