Security Clearance Consulting

Our lawyers represent government contractors and employees facing administrative actions, including clearance revocations. We consult with law firms handling other matters, such as DUIs, DWIs, divorces and bankruptcies, in the consequences to cleared individuals of charges, claims and outcomes in those other matters. We help our clients be proactive by understanding their situations and recommending actions that improve the chance of success before the security clearance appeal is finally considered and decided. so that the subject is in the best posture to secure a favorable determination.

Defense Contractor Security Clearance Practice

Our security clearance attorneys assist companies whose clearances have been called into question and have helped companies reform systems to meet facilities clearance guidelines, which are published in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual.

Individual Security Clearance Practice

Our individual security clearance appeal clients, meaning people who have received a Statement of Reasons or Letter of Intent, reside primarily in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, but we also regularly handle denials of security clearances for clients elsewhere, including recently Florida, California, Massachussets, New Jersey, Ohio, Washington, and overseas. Additionally we can counsel you on how to complete the complex and sometimes misleading forms requried to secure a clearance in the first instance, including the SF-86 (also known as e-QIP if completed on-line) and the SF-85P.

Security Clearance Appeals

We represent you through the process at a range of federal agencies and offices, including DOHA, CIA, NSA, DOE, DOJ, DOHS, ICE, State Department, DONCAF and Army CAF. If you received a Statement of Reasons or a Letter of Intent, look at our page describing the appeals process and contact us.

Some Recent ISCR Successes

Note: NSA and CIA cases are unpublished and the actual decisions are in any event short and largely uninformative as to issues and evidence. The following are a sampling of DOHA cases we've won either in the DC area or at other sites, such as Boston and Miami. In reading these the viewer should understand that we lose cases too and that there are many variables determining how a case will be decided, including but not limited to the breadth and nature of the stated concerns leading to the proposed adverse action, the specific facts that can be proven by the appealing individual, and the clarity and focus of the presentation of an appeal.
