It’s not too difficult these days to promote one’s self as an “expert” in something. Put up a fancy website and it seemingly translates into instant credibility.
There are plenty of opportunistic lawyers out there who do just that. You may have seen some of them advertising on Google. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong attorney to handle your security clearance case can have real consequences. With your career on the line, don’t settle for an armchair expert or an attorney who is handling your security clearance matter today and someone else’s divorce or court martial tomorrow.
You deserve better and, as your security clearance lawyers, we believe we can provide it.
To start, we won’t take your case unless we believe that we can help you. When you contact us for your free, no-obligation case evaluation, we’ll talk about the issues in your background and address your concerns in a non-judgmental manner. While we can’t ever guarantee an outcome, we will give you a frank assessment of where we believe you stand.
AN EXCLUSIVE FOCUS ON SECURITY CLEARANCE LAW
That assessment is based on our combined 100+ years of experience as some of the federal government’s top security clearance officials, as well as years of private practice. Unlike some of our competitors, we didn’t just wake-up one day and declare ourselves “security clearance attorneys.” We also mean it when we say that we “exclusively” practice federal security clearance defense: we don’t take cases in any other area of the law. Our professional backgrounds, combined with our niche law practice, gives us a depth and breadth of experience handling security clearance cases that few other law firms can match.
We handle hundreds of cases per year, across nearly every adjudicative guideline, and before a broad range of federal agencies. But don’t let our case volume fool you. We give each case significant personal attention and we have the results to prove it.
All of this experience has provided us with invaluable insight on the security clearance process – including common traps and tricks the government uses – that we can leverage in your favor. We know the system, the applicable law, and the arguments that work. And we believe this positions us to effectively advocate for you in a manner that is both efficient and economical.
TRANSPARENT, FLAT FEE PRICING AND HELPFUL CONVENIENCE
We may not be the cheapest attorneys out there, but we’re also not into billing games or surprises and we fight for our clients like their cases were our own. When you initially contact us, you will be provided up-front with a flat fee relative to the complexity of your case. If you decide to retain us, you will then receive two emails. The first contains a secure, encrypted means of communication (so you can send us your documentation without compromising your security) and a link to pay securely online via credit card. The second email is your retainer agreement, which can be e-signed with the click of your mouse. It is a simple, streamlined process designed to take the hassle out of legal representation.
A LAW FIRM THAT PUT YOUR NEEDS FIRST
The direction your representation takes from that point is largely dependent upon your specific case. It could be advising you on how to avoid problems before submitting your SF-86, or it could be starting the appeal of a denial. No matter what the situation or where in the world you are located, you will be provided with your attorney or security specialist’s direct telephone line and the guarantee that you can call us any time for questions without incurring additional charges. We won’t pass you off to an assistant or ignore your calls, and we answer our own phones.
Whether you are facing a preliminary security clearance denial or appealing an adverse decision, we hope you will consider contacting us for a free, no-obligation case evaluation. It would be a privilege to represent you.
