The security clearance attorneys at Lawscape regularly assist federal employees and contractors, as well as military personnel, in all stages of the security clearance process. We help you obtain any of the three levels of security clearance – confidential, secret, or top secret.
Obtaining a security clearance, no matter the level, is the ultimate sign of trust from the government. Federal employees, military members and government contractors are often required to obtain and hold a security clearance in order to maintain their sensitive position with the government or a secured contractor. In the last decade, the federal government has greatly increased the number and type of positions that require security clearances, making it difficult for many to be employed or stay employed in their federal positions.
Applying for a security clearance should be taken seriously and conducted with care and strategy. Honesty throughout the application and renewal process is key. Oftentimes, failing to hold a security clearance will lead to the loss of one’s job.
We regularly assist federal employees and contractors as well as military personnel in all stages of the security clearance process and have helped hundreds retain their clearances. All of our security clearance lawyers have held security clearances – meaning they understand the process from personal experience.
Our attorneys are available to provide counsel throughout the entire security clearance application, revocation and appeals process, including:
Preparation for interrogatories and investigative interviews
Pre-Clearance Counseling for SF-86 and DD Form 1879 – Our attorneys can help identify mitigating circumstances, and assist in drafting answers
Preparation of response to the Statement of Reasons and Denial Letters
Requests for Hearings
Representation at post-denial hearings in front of the Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals (DOHA), Department of Defense, FBI, CIA, DHS, and all federal courts and government agencies, including document and witness preparation
Preparation and representation throughout further appeals
If you believe the information gathered about you during the investigation is misleading or inaccurate, the appeal process is your opportunity to correct or clarify the situation and gain access to a security clearance. A lawyer with experience in reviewing records and preparing written appeals will be able to assist in proving that you are not a security threat and should be granted the security clearance.
The team of security clearance attorneys at Lawscape is familiar with the application process, adjudicative guidelines, and mitigating factors. All of our attorneys have held security clearances themselves and know how it feels to go through the investigative process.
In case of a denial or revocation, we will fight fervently to demonstrate your trustworthiness and grant you access to the security clearance you deserve. We often represent clients on appeal and at hearings before the DOHA, multiple federal agencies and administrative bodies, and in federal court.
