Our office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. After hours or on weekends or holidays you may leave a voice mail message for any of our staff or attorneys by calling (904) 396-2322.

Our fee arrangement for services depends on the case and cannot be determined until your situation is reviewed by the attorney. Although we do charge a fee for the initial consultation, our fee for this service is less than our usual and customary hourly rate. Currently, the fee charged for the initial consultation is between $85 and $125 per half hour, depending on the attorney.  Many of our cases can be accepted on a contingent fee basis so that no fee is paid unless there is a recovery.

Security Clearances....

Federal Security Clearances

Certain jobs in both the government and private sectors require federal security clearances. Whether you work for the federal government, in the defense industry, intelligence, or law enforcement or are a contractor working for the government, a security clearance may be both required and necessary for you to perform the specialized tasks you were hired to do.

Periodic reviews and background checks may also result in a loss of your clearance and subsequent loss of your job. At the Law Offices of Archibald J. Thomas, III, P.A. we work with clients who are trying to obtain, retain or reinstate their federal security clearances. Contact us today to find out how we can help.

Appeals of Revoked or Denied Federal Security Clearance

The responsibility that accompanies security clearance is serious. Essentially, the federal government is granting you limited access to private or secret information. If you have been considered for or have obtained such access but have had your clearance suspended, revoked or denied, your job security is probably your greatest fear, and rightly so.

Applying for a security clearance should be taken seriously and conducted with care and strategy. Denial or revocation of a clearance could mean the loss of your job as a whole.

Our experienced team of federal employment and national security law attorneys assist federal employees and government contractors in all stages of the security clearance application process and have helped individuals secure or retain their own clearance at all levels.

At the Law Offices of Archibald J. Thomas, III, P.A. our lawyers represent employees in government security personal appearances and review hearings. Our attorneys are available to provide counsel throughout the entire security clearance application, revocation, and appeal process, including:

  1. Counsel and advice on completing the SF-86 security clearance application and other pre-clearance concerns;
  2. Preparation for interrogatories and investigative interviews;
  3. Preparation of response to the Statement of Reasons;
  4. Requests for hearings;
  5. Representation at post-denial hearings in front of the Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals (DOHA), Department of Defense, FBI, CIA, and all federal courts and government agencies, including document and witness preparation; and
  6. Preparation and representation throughout further appeals.
    Our understanding of the review process and our experience in federal employment law allows us to provide our clients with knowledgeable counsel and effective advocacy regarding these important issues affecting federal employees and contractors.

To find out more information about how we can assist you in your security clearance review contact us by-e-mail.
