I can’t count the number of times I have received calls from clients who tell me they have waived their right to a Hearing before the DOHA and submitted a written response to a Judge who then ruled against the clearance being granted. As a representative for individuals facing clearance issues, I know firsthand the benefits of a Security Clearance Hearing. Your best chance of winning an appeal is at the Formal Hearing where we can speak directly to the Judge and answer any questions he/she might have. When a client has already waived their right to a Hearing, they make their case more difficult to win.

That’s not to say that a case that requires a written response are impossible to win, and if you look at my track record of success, you will see that success is still very possible. The next mistake that can be made is attempting to prepare a written response on your own. When clients attempt to prepare written responses on their own, the responses are often incomplete when filed and missing evidence that is pivotal to their success.

With your job and future on the line, the stakes are too high when responding to a clearance denial, whether in court or in a written response, to not seek legal counsel.
