If you are considering trying to obtain
security clearance, or have already begun the process of obtaining security clearance, a
skilled and knowledgeable attorney from Claery & Green can be of great
assistance to you. A security clearance is a determination by the United
States government that a person or company is eligible for access to classified
information. There are two types of clearances: Personnel Security Clearances
(PCL) and Facility Security Clearance (FCL). No matter which type of security
clearance you are seeking, a lawyer from our firm can help you through
the every step of the process.
Your National Security Clearance Attorney will help you being the process by helping you file the appropriate security clearance application. Once this has been submitted, the Federal Agency Security Adjudication Officer will determine whether or not security clearance or access to national security information will be granted or denied.
The Supreme Court has ruled that, “security-clearance determinations
should err, when they must, on the side of denials.” This means
that when a government decision maker is unsure whether or not a candidate
is fit for access to restricted information, they will favor security
clearance denial. In many cases, a
security clearance denial is made because the applicant is not considered trustworthy or reliable
enough to handle the information they may receive.
An experienced and skilled attorney from our firm will provide you with invaluable advice and guidance during security clearance adjudication no matter what level of security clearance you may be seeking. Individuals often have many questions during the application process and it can be very beneficial to have a lawyer to fall back on for legal support.
