    • I recommend Borquaye Thomas.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Attorney B.A. Thomas, is honestly worth his weight in gold. I could not ask to be represented by a more knowledgeable lawyer, and his responsiveness is remarkable. In addition, I found the staff at The Law Office of B.A. Thomas, LLC to be affable and well informed. My family and I highly recommend Attorney Thomas.

    • I recommend Borquaye Thomas.
    • I hired Borquaye more than 3 years ago.
    • Borquaye handled my Education matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    If I had to describe B. A. Thomas in one word, it would be, "fearless." He fought the attorneys for the school district, the hearing officer and even challenged the Superintendent! Had it not been for Mr. Thomas' expertise, I would be out of my teaching job. His staff was friendly and professional and they understand the importance of putting "Client's first." The Teacher's Lawyer is one of a kind.

    Mr. Thomas was referred to me by 3 different teachers. He was very professional and knowledgeable about education law and wasn't afraid to fight. I appreciated Mr. Thomas' ability to explain the various steps in the legal process. After my hearing, the Tribunal voted that I should keep my job AND backpay!

      Lawyer Comment:

      The posted comment, "Do not waste your money" is simply disrespectful. I've been blessed with the opportunity to represent Educators for close to ten (10) years.

    • I do not recommend Borquaye Thomas.
    • I hired Borquaye more than 3 years ago.
    • Borquaye handled my Education matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    This attorney initially seemed interested in my case and lead lme to believe he was looking out for my best interest. Within two months of handling my case and submitting the retainer he became unavailable and often did not return my calls. I eventually had to find another attorney and when I informed him I no longer needed his services, he did not reply.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This comment is very disturbing as I have literally represented 100's of Clients and never want a dissatisfied customer. While every attorney at our firm aims to please every Client, we sometimes fall short of every Client's expectation. If possible, I respectfully ask this "Client" to contact me to discuss their experience, so I can improve as an attorney and as an advocate for Teachers. I am pleased, however, that this "Client" at least rated me as knowledgeable. In all seriousness, I apologize that the above individual's experience was not a pleasant one.
