Appeal Your Denial or Adverse Decision

If you have been denied security clearance, our lawyers can help. You typically have twenty days from the point of denial to request a hearing before an Administrative Judge. We can help you request an extension. Our attorneys can help you file the necessary documentation and represent you during the appeals process. Our goal is to help you feel at ease during this process while our expert attorneys strive to gain you a favorable outcome for your appeal.

Responding to SORs and LOIs

A statement of reasons (SOR) or letter of intent (LOI) can be confusing for those going through the appeals process. Our attorneys can help with an SOR or LOI response, helping you present your case for security clearance reinstatement.

Department of Hearings and Appeals

You may not know how to respond if you’ve received a letter from the department of hearings and appeals (DOHA). This department represents the government in litigation with regards to security clearance applications. If you have received a letter from the DOHA that concerns your application, our experienced lawyers can help you navigate this difficult process.

Security Clearance Applications

At Security Clearance Law Group, we encourage you to be vigilant during the application process and never leave your approval to chance. Our attorneys can give you the expert guidance you need to traverse this critical initial step. Our attorneys can help you prepare the application and submit for a more favorable decision.

SF-86 (e-QIP) Preparation

SF-86 document preparation is one of the most fundamental and crucial steps for obtaining security clearance. Whether your clearance is being sought from the FBI, Department of Defense, CIA, or Department of Homeland Security, or any other agency, our team can give you the advice and guidance you need to fully-prepare all SF-86 documentation.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

We can review your Personal Investigative File through The Freedom of Information Act, which defines which agency records are available for disclosure and dictates the proper procedures for disclosure. Having access to your PIF could be critical in defending against your security clearance denial.

Responding to Interrogatories

An agency investigating your eligibility for security clearance could send you written questions, also referred to as interrogatories. The purpose of these questions is to provide further information and documentation to the agency in order to assist the investigator. A skilled and experienced attorney can help you provide clear and accurate responses to all interrogatories, giving you more favorable chances for obtaining what you are seeking for.

Other Considerations

Our firm can help with AFCAF denials, DONCAF refusals, and all other security clearance revocation and denial.
