Security Clearances

Worldwide Legal Help with Federal Security Clearances | Washington, D.C.

Certain jobs in both the government and private sectors require federal security clearances. Whether you work for the federal government, in the defense industry, intelligence, or law enforcement or are a contractor working for the government, a security clearance may be both required and necessary for you to perform the specialized tasks you were hired to do.

Periodic reviews and background checks may also result in a loss of your clearance and subsequent loss of your job. At Passman & Kaplan, P.C., Attorneys at Law, in Washington, D.C., we work with clients who are trying to obtain, retain or reinstate their federal security clearances. Contact us today to find out how we can help.

Appeals of Revoked or Denied Federal Security Clearance

The responsibility that accompanies security clearance is serious. Essentially, the federal government is granting you limited access to private or secret information. If you have been considered for or have obtained such access but have had your clearance suspended, revoked or denied, your job security is probably your greatest fear, and rightly so. Will you lose your job if you lose your clearance?

When a security clearance is denied to a contractor for the Department of Defense, it can be catastrophic to your career. DOD regulations and attitudes could turn what should be a simple delay into a long-term ban on you or your company.

At P&K, our lawyers represent clients in government security personal appearances and review hearings, providing compelling advocacy and strong support for security clearance denials or revocations.

Our understanding of the review process and our firm grounding in federal employment law positions us to provide our clients with knowledgeable counsel and powerful advocacy.
