Colorado Springs Security Clearance Lawyers
For many individuals in Colorado, both military and civilians, security clearances are essential to your job or career. Criminal charges and convictions can jeopardize these clearances, both in the initial investigation stages to secure them and in the revocation of clearances. Clearances can be canceled in the wake of criminal convictions that are accessible on permanent criminal records. When your livelihood or potential livelihood is threatened, you may benefit from the knowledge and experience of a Colorado Springs security clearance attorney at Aviso Law.
Our team includes former military service members with Army Judge Advocate experience who remain active in the military to this day. Both attorneys fully understand the security clearance process and how to assist those whose clearances face cancellation due to various scenarios. With so many military personnel, defense contractors, and civilians who work in our state in connection with its six military bases, we are ready to serve you in protecting or expanding your career with beneficial security clearances.
Security Clearance Issues
Security clearances are needed for many individuals who need to work in government-related operations. These individuals can include but are not limited to:
- Military personnel
- Federal law enforcement
- Intelligence agency employees
- Medical personnel
- Financial personnel
- Education personnel
- Telecommunications personnel
These clearances give these personnel a “license” to access classified information in connection with their jobs that may be Confidential, Secret, or Top Secret. Clearances are issued after an investigation is conducted into a person’s background, character, and financial responsibility. The process to obtain them can take months or more than a year and may require periodic renewal, based on clearance levels.
Additionally, random and ongoing investigations may be conducted on certain personnel between renewals. When any of these investigations turn up criminal matters, you may be denied a clearance, or your existing clearance may be canceled.
How a Security Clearance Attorney at Aviso Law Can Help
If your criminal arrest or charges or military disciplinary proceedings have led to security clearance loss or jeopardy, our team may be able to help you mitigate its impact on your clearance. We can present positive evidence to examiners that work in your favor related to the original criminal incident as well as how you have conducted your life and career since. Just because you were arrested or charged does not automatically disqualify you for clearances except in certain instances.
The nature and consequences of the original conviction as well as how you handled court sanctions that followed, your lifelong job history, training, advanced education, and other positive factors can all work in your favor. Our team will do everything possible on your behalf to help you preserve or obtain the security clearance you need to fulfill your career path and/or maintain your livelihood.
