Security Clearance Lawyers

By Spodek Law Group | June 17, 2020


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.  The security clearance attorneys regularly assist federal employees and contractors, as well as military personnel, in all stages of the security clearance process. 


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.


The application process as well as the clearance renewal process includes an extensive and thorough background investigation into your personal life and financial history. Anything from traffic offenses to credit card debt can be called into question. A security clearance can be taken away at any time due to a number of factors that call into question your ability to work in a sensitive position. This can include accruing debt beyond your means, defaulting on your mortgage payments or providing a false answer on your SF-86.


Our lawyers are at your service.  We can provide counsel throughout the entire security clearance application, revocation and appeals process, including:


  • Preparation of response to the Statement of Reasons and Denial Letters
  • Respond to requests for Hearings
  • Pre-Clearance Counseling for SF-86 and DD Form 1879 – Our attorneys can help identify mitigating circumstances, and assist in drafting answers
  • Preparation for interrogatories and investigative interviews
  • 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
