Alison Lee Farquhar

Annapolis, Maryland

Alison Farquhar earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Arizona State University and returned to Boston in 2011 to work in biomedical research. Not finding lab work to be satisfying, Alison spent several years at a non-profit organization, and eventually decided to attend law school to study government regulation and public policy. Once there, she soon discovered her interest in tax law and completed Suffolk's three-year combined JD/LLM in Taxation program in 2018. During law school, Alison built her tax acumen by volunteering with the Boston Tax Help Coalition (an IRS VITA program) and clerking at DeFranceschi & Klemm, a tax controversy firm. Alison is a native of Scituate, MA, but grew up in Phoenix, AZ. She recently moved to Annapolis from Boston to join Frost & Associates.
