Military Criminal Defense Attorney Shawn Cline

Security Clearance Actions

Need an attorney to help you get security clearance?

There is virtually nothing that one can do in the military without a security clearance. So when the command takes away a servicemember’s security clearance, or even just suspends it, the servicemember is suddenly unable to function as a member of their unit. This can lead to administrative discharge, as the military will not continue to pay a servicemember who cannot perform in a meaningful way.

A servicemember’s security clearance is like a lawyer’s license to practice law. Shawn Cline knows this, because he has both. Without a law license, an attorney is useless; and without a security clearance, a servicemember is no better. Don’t let this happen to you! A security clearance is not a right, it is a privilege, so the military can be rather arbitrary in how clearances are given out and taken away. But you have significant procedural rights tied into your security clearance. You need to talk to someone who understands these rights.

The Law Office of Shawn M. Cline, PC has handled the entire security clearance process, ranging from talking with commanders before they take action on a clearance, to appearing before a federal judge at the Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals in Los Angeles. Attorney Shawn Cline understands every facet of the security clearance process, but most importantly, he understands that your security clearance is your livelihood, and he will fight hard to make sure you don’t lose it, or that you get it back.

There are many reasons that servicemembers lose their clearances, from interactions with foreign nationals (including marriage), to financial issues, to misconduct. The revocation process is terribly cumbersome, and resolving these issues can take months or longer. You cannot afford to sit idly by and let this bureaucratic nightmare trudge on, as your career continues to flounder.
