Security Clearance Issues and Legal Matters

The United States government assigns a security clearance to selected personnel or companies, allowing them one of three levels of access to certain classified information, documents, facilities and locations. These classifications are 1) confidential, 2) secret and 3) top secret.

Individuals whose jobs require a security clearance to access confidential information (government employees, military employees and government contract employees, among others) may be required to go through the security clearance process, including detailed background checks. For many people, obtaining clearance is essential to earning a living.

When problems arise during the security clearance process or background check or when obtaining or maintaining a security clearance is at risk, it may be necessary to seek legal help.
