Security Clearance


Helping Clients Obtain and Retain Security Clearances

For many military members, federal employees, and government contractors, a security clearance is necessary to obtain and keep their jobs. The clearance process can be stressful and daunting for anyone, even if you have a clean past and believe you should sail right through. Issues can arise when you least expect it. In addition, if you already have a security clearance, many types of events can put you in jeopardy of having your clearance revoked.

We help clients who received a denial of their clearance application, as well as those who are facing the suspension or revocation of a clearance.

Security Clearance Services

We can help with any stage of the clearance process, including the following:

Pre-investigation guidance – We can help with all aspects of the complex clearance application for both SF-85 and SF-86 clearances. We can also provide advice if you have to take a polygraph test.

Help during adjudication – We can help you take intermediary actions during the decision-making process, such as drafting correspondence to challenge any derogatory information obtained from Scattered Castles or the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS).

Formal responses – When you receive a Statement of Reasons (SOR) – also known as a Letter of Intent (LOI) – stating your clearance will be denied or revoked, it’s crucial that you respond in the proper manner. Our firm knows how to gather evidence in support of your clearance and draft detailed responses based on sound legal reason and the National Security Adjudicative Guidelines.

Appeals – We help you through the entire formal appeals process, including drafting appellate briefs and representing you at hearings in front of the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA).
