Security Clearance

Our DC-Metropolitan Based Law Firm Specializes in Employment, Security Clearance, and Retirement Law.

Security Clearance Responses and Appeals

When a Statement of Reasons (SOR), Notice of Revocation, or Notice of Suspension in connection with a security clearance is issued by a federal agency, it is important to take the matter very seriously.  If the SOR or Notice is not responded to appropriately or in a timely fashion, an individual runs the risk of potentially losing his or her security clearance and employment.

Each federal agency has its own internal procedures for the security clearance appeals process based on the National Security Adjudicative Guidelines, in SEAD 4. Depending on the federal agency, the process for security clearance appeals varies, but include, under Executive Order 12968, the ability to provide a formal written response (with affidavits and exhibits) and the opportunity to present an individual’s case in a personal appearance or an administrative hearing.
