What is a Security Clearance in the Military?

The Military has to manage large amounts of sensitive and classified information throughout its operations, and they most carefully vet the people who have has to that information. When you go through this process you receive something called a security clearance. There are three levels of security clearance in the military (in order from least to most secret):

  • Confidential
  • Secret
  • Top Secret

What Does the Application Process Consist of?

As former active duty military officers who advised clients on security clearance issues, we understand the value of your security clearance and are prepared to help you fight for this crucial asset at every stage of the security clearance process. The application process consists of three stages:

  1. Application initiation;
  2. Investigation; and
  3. Adjudication.

What Are the Types of Security Clearances That We Handle?

We handle all types of security clearance cases:

  • Security clearance appeals
  • Service member security clearances
  • Revocation of security clearance
  • Facility security clearance
  • Personnel clearance process

What is a Statement of Reasons?

A Statement of Reasons (SOR) is a list of reasons detailing why a security clearance is being denied or revoked. The best chance you have of retaining your security clearance is by providing an effective, accurate, and timely response to the Letter of Intent (LOI) or Statement of Reasons (SOR). Unfortunately, many hardworking, honest people lose their security clearances simply because they fail to provide the right information in this crucial step of the clearance process.

When you receive a Statement of Reasons, it is important to seek the advice of an attorney with security clearance experience quickly so that there is time to help you respond. Most facility security officers and security managers are not qualified or permitted to provide you with the comprehensive, personalized support that you need to fight for your clearance. Our law firm represents individuals in all stages of the security clearance process.

The Hanzel Law Firm understands how important your clearance is to your livelihood. Your clearance is worth fighting for. We can help.
