Alicia Taylor moved to Naples in 2012, after graduating from the University of Florida with Bachelor of Science, Juris Doctor and Master of Laws degrees. However, as a partner at the law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP, practicing in the areas of estate, tax and business succession planning, she says her family roots have been a big part of her career.

“As a seventh-generation Floridian, fifth-generation cattle rancher and third-generation citrus grower, I think my heritage gives me a unique perspective, in the courtroom and the community,” she says. “My family is active in Florida’s cattle and citrus industries and I stay connected to agriculture through the Wedgworth Leadership Institute for Agricultural and Natural Resources as both a program graduate and alumni association board member.”

Taylor is a 2014 graduate of Growing Associates In Naples, and recently completed board service for Girls on the Run of Southwest Florida. She also participates in community events with the Humane Society Naples, the Cancer Alliance of Naples and the Chamber of Commerce.
