    I have known Borquaye and worked with him in connection with a number of Education/Administrative law matters for many years. We have been on opposing sides. He has also been a lawyer whom I have turned to for advice on numerous matters. He is extremely knowledgeable and he is a tireless advocate for his clients. For a number of years, he has been one of the foremost advocates for teachers and other professionals facing job termination or sanctions against their licenses. Borquaye has an excellent reputation and his clients are in extremely good hands.
