Security Clearance Adjudication Lawyers

Security Clearance Attorneys

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 & Hammond, LLP 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.

Many different factors will be considered when determining whether or not a person will be granted security clearance, including:

  • Employment History
  • Foreign Connections/Travel
  • Military Service
  • Subversive Activities
  • Loyalty
  • Trustworthiness
  • Financial Responsibility
  • Involvement in Civil or Criminal Litigation
  • Emotional Stability
  • Judgment
  • Ties to others

Security Clearance Application Attorneys

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. For experienced and confidential representation you can count on, call Claery & Hammond, LLP today to schedule a consultation with a security clearance attorney.
