Skilled Clifton, New Jersey, Employment Law Attorney
For four years, founding attorney James A. Kridel, Jr. served as a special agent for the United States in the field of counterintelligence. This appointment came as a result from his voluntary service with the United States Army in Vietnam. He knows how to handle a security clearance denial and understands how to construct a detailed security clearance revocation defense that is effective, comprehensive and compelling.
What many people do not realize is that one of your employee rights is to challenge a security clearance denial, even if the grounds for the denial are legitimate. For instance, if you have a criminal record and it is discovered after you have been offered the job and now they want to revoke your security clearance, you can appeal and have a hearing before a magistrate to prove that your past does not affect your present performance.
No matter what situation you are in, if there are problems surrounding your security clearance eligibility, it is in your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer.
