Our security clearance law firm understands how pivotal the application and clearance renewal process can be. There will be a deep dive investigation into every aspect of one’s financial and personal history. When every detail matters, it’s important to have the right security clearance lawyer by your side. It’s important to note that gaining a security clearance is not a lifetime designation. Everything from a ticket for speeding to an outstanding credit card debt can have a clearance revoked.

How Our Security Clearance Attorneys Can Assist You

Our security clearance attorneys promise to work with each client to conduct a carefully planned application and strategy for success. Every step of the security clearance process must be approached with complete honesty as failing to maintain a security clearance due to a lie will likely lead to the loss of employment.

We recommend choosing our security clearance lawyers because of our track record of helping hundreds of clients obtain and retain their clearances. In fact, our security clearance lawyers have gone through the process of gaining a security clearance themselves so that they can advise from a place of personal experience.

Obtaining and maintaining national security clearances can be a complex and challenging process. Security clearance lawyers specialize in assisting individuals who are navigating this intricate system, offering invaluable support to both initial applicants and those who have lost their clearance. The Edmunds Law Firm Team consists of security clearance lawyers representing Federal employees and government contractors nationwide and help you with the following, and more:

Initial Clearance Applicants:

Initial Security Clearance Application Review

Security clearance lawyers can provide comprehensive guidance on completing the initial clearance application, ensuring that all necessary information is accurately provided, and potential red flags are addressed upfront.

Preparation for Interviews

We assist security clearance applicants in preparing for interviews with investigators, helping them understand the types of questions that may be asked and how to respond effectively to maximize their chances of success.

Response to Security Concerns or Denials

If an initial clearance application encounters concerns or is denied, legal counsel can step in to assess the situation, identify reasons for denial, and develop strategies to address concerns or appeal decisions.

Advocacy During the Security Clearance Investigation

Security clearance lawyers serve as advocates for initial applicants before the federal government, representing their interests throughout the clearance process and communicating with relevant authorities on their behalf.

Lost Clearance Holders:

Review of Denial Reasons

For individuals who have lost their security clearance, Edmunds Law Firm can review the reasons for denial and assess the viability of appealing the decision.

Assistance in Responding to Statement of Reasons or Clearance Revocation Proposals

We assist clearance holders in preparing appeals, security clearance reconsideration, gathering relevant evidence, and presenting compelling arguments to demonstrate eligibility for clearance reinstatement.

Representation During Security Clearance Investigations, Hearings and Appeals

Security clearance lawyers can represent clients in clearance hearings, presenting their case before adjudicative bodies and advocating for their clearance to be reinstated.

Mitigation Strategies

We develop mitigation strategies to address concerns raised during the clearance revocation process, such as addressing personal conduct issues or demonstrating rehabilitation efforts.

Monitoring and Compliance

After clearance reinstatement, our experienced security clearance attorneys can provide assistance and ongoing support to ensure compliance with clearance requirements and address any issues that may arise.
