Rhode Island Denied Security Clearance Attorney

Virtually all government employees, contractors and military employees are required to obtain security clearances as a condition of employment. If your security clearance has been denied or revoked, your career will be put on hold. You will not be able to perform any sensitive work until you secure the necessary security clearances.

Government employees who failed to hire an experienced attorney from the start are at greater risk of a denied security clearance. At Flanagan Law Offices, LLC, we offer a strong voice for military personnel and private sector employees in need of a security clearance to perform their jobs.

Mr. Flanagan has a firm understanding of the unique procedures for securing a security clearance based on the specific branch of government. He will apply his years of experience and industry knowledge to help you apply for a security clearance or challenge a denied or revoked security clearance.

Handling Denied or Revoked Security Clearances in Rhode Island

Security clearances can be denied or revoked based on criminal charges, psychological concerns and financial allegations. Military law attorney Flanagan has extensive experience advocating for individuals with revoked or denied security clearances based on a variety of accusations, including:

Significant debt concerns
Domestic abuse allegations
Sexual assault allegations
Drinking and driving or drug charges
Mishandling of classified information
Emotional, mental or personality disorders
Failing to be completely truthful when applying for a security clearance

False or misleading allegations can ultimately prevent employers from hiring the best-qualified candidates for highly sensitive jobs. If your security clearance has been denied or revoked, you will have a hearing before an administrative judge. The procedures for the hearing will depend on which branch of government denied or revoked your security clearance. Attorney Flanagan has years of experience representing clients in security clearance hearings. He will effectively prepare you for this proceeding to present your side of the story.

Security clearance hearings are similar to criminal or civil trials with opening statements, cross examination of witnesses, presentation of evidence and closing arguments. During the hearing, we have the burden to prove why you should be awarded a security clearance. Security clearance hearings are generally won on diligence.

At Flanagan Law Offices, LLC, we are committed to leveling the playing field against you. Attorney Flanagan will present evidence demonstrating your strong job performance to show he knows more about your level of work and the facts leading into your inquiry than the government knows. We are committed to staying ahead of the government at every turn possible. Based on the evidence presented, a judge will make a recommendation to the government agency. If the resolution is unfavorable, our work is not over. We will appeal the ruling to help you obtain the necessary security clearance.
