Being denied security clearance can sting. Not only does it mean that you are ineligible to be hired for the position you applied for that required security clearance, it also means that you are being denied privileged information that other people are allowed to know because of something in your background. Receiving a Statement of Reasons as to why you were denied can make you feel like you’re being judged, and in a way, you are. However, a security clearance denial isn’t the end of the road. You still have options available to you. You have the ability to appeal your security clearance denial. Many people are denied security clearance in the U.S. every year, simply because it is unclear whether or not the person is fit to have clearance – in these cases, the government simply defaults to denial. You have the ability to request a hearing in front of an Administrative Judge within fifteen days of receiving your denial, and it is imperative that you request your hearing within this time frame, or you will lose the ability to appeal your denial all together. It is important that you have a skilled attorney on your side who is familiar with security clearance appeals. The Security Clearance Law Group has the expertise necessary to challenge the Statement of Reasons and petition for you to be granted the security clearance you need. Contact us immediately to discuss your security clearance appeal. Don’t wait! (858) 345-1720
