U.S. Government agencies conduct background investigations and reinvestigations of individuals under consideration for a security clearance or for the retention of their security clearance in national security positions. Applying for a security clearance requires an employee to undergo a comprehensive background investigation into all aspects of his or her personal and professional history.
The investigation includes interviewing the applicant, checking state and federal criminal databases, and interviewing other persons. An employee’s full cooperation with all aspects of the investigation is a requirement in order for him or her to obtain a security clearance.
We often advise and represent individuals in the security clearance investigations process in conjunction with the clearance investigation process. Should you need to discuss potential security clearance issues or need legal representation in connection with a security clearance matter please contact us by telephone at (703) 668-0070 or through our contact page.
