Alan and his staff did an excellent job for me. When I had my initial query of where I stood legally, he immediately jumped on the offensive. His demeanor was excellent and it quelled all the disruptive thoughts I had about my situation. His staff was also a great factor in winning the case. They explained exactly the data which would be needed to win. When Alan explained exactly how the proceedings would occur, I was skeptical because opposing counsel really sounded aggressive. When we finally got to the courtroom, everything went exactly as Alan and his staff had described it. I was not nervous at all and it seemed like the atmosphere was a bit less aggressive than I thought it would be. He handled the witness team with skill and precise questioning - they also thought Alan did an excellent job. I would gladly ask for Alan expert legal assistance if I need representation again.

My security clearance was revoked without a clear explanation. I asked the Edmunds Law Firm for their assistance. I was granted a security clearance within 2 months. The Edmunds Law Firm was very effective and very thorough with my case.

I hired Mr. Edmunds due to receiving a Statement of Reasons (SOR) that my security clearance was going to be revoked. Mr. Edmunds and his staff did an excellent job in preparing my defense and Mr. Edmunds' confidence in the case kept me from worrying myself into an early grave. In the end, my case was found in my favor, so it is obvious to me that his approach and methods worked.

I would recommend Edmunds law firm for a security clearance matter. I hired Edmunds after receiving a statement of reasons for my clearance. Edmunds law firm put together a packet of information and I received a positive adjudication to retain my security clearance. Great job.

I recommend using Alan Edmunds firm in supporting your efforts in retaining your clearance. Mr. Edmunds supported me in my appeal to a clearance revocation. He built up a binder in support of mitigating all the statement of reasons (SOR) that my clearance was being denied and after review by the adjudication facility of all the facts and submissions I was able to keep my clearance.

I highly recommend Mr. Edmunds and his firm to represent you if you have been denied or currently have a security clearance that is being revoked. I have worked for the DON for 10 yrs and found myself in jeopardy of losing my clearance. I retained Mr. Edmunds and his firm and it was the best decision I have ever made. I also want to say that his legal aide Dennis Smith was very professional and knowledgeable dealing with DODCAF and what they expect when preparing a response to any SOR. Thank You very much.

I would recommend Edmunds Law firm to anyone having security clearance issues. It was nice to have some one fighting on your side. They were experienced and knowledgeable throughout the whole process and I don't think I would have been able to get my clearance reinstated without them.

I contacted Mr. Edmunds law firm after my Security Clearance had been denied. They did the Statement of Response (SOR) for me and 6 months later the government did not accept the SOR and again denied my clearance. During the appeal process Mr. Edmunds appeared with me at the hearing and 8 weeks later the Judge granted me my clearance. I am sure if I had not retained Mr. Edmunds I would have lost my clearance!

Thank's to Alan Edmunds firm I got my security clearance! They were very helpful and professional on my case and with their response to the SOR that was completed in less than 10 days I got my clearance only two weeks after it was submitted! Security Clearance advisor Dennis Smith was great! I would 100% recommend this firm and would not hesitate hiring them for security clearance issues.

I hired the Edmunds Law Firm after receiving the Statement of Reasons for my 2013 security clearance application denial. I had previously applied for a security clearance in 2009 and was denied after not fully responding in a timely manner to the response to interrogatories. In both applications my clearance was denied primarily due to a history of drugs, alcohol and criminal charges from my early adult life. I was hopeless, after submitting the response to interrogatories for my 2013 application and reviewing the long listed statements of reasons, that I would ever obtain a security clearance.
I found Alan Edmunds website via surfing the internet looking for National Security Lawyers and reviewing his testimonials from past clients. On my first telephone conversation with Alan, he hit home with me the whole person concept. That, yes, I may have made a series of mistakes in my 20s when it came to drugs and alcohol, but there is much more to my story than what was on paper. Given my starting point in life, I have come a very long way. He helped me to understand the process from the government’s perspective and for once gave me some hope that someday I could obtain a clearance and be able to fully contribute to my profession and society. He gave me many suggestions to prepare for the appeal that I followed to the best of my ability.
Throughout the process I had regular contact with Alan, his law firm staff, and the legal writer compiling my response to the government. The Edmunds Law Firm staff and legal aides were very clear on what the costs would be for me throughout the process. I had never had a retainer agreement with a law firm, but once explained and I took the time to understand the process it made perfect sense. All things included, from the professionally written SOR response to Attorney Edmunds personal appearance at my trial hearing, was well… well worth the fees I paid for his services. I have hired big name law firms in the past to only get their “new hire” representing me; to have Alan’s personal touch and years of experience here, made a world of difference.
I have no doubt that without Alan Edmunds I would not have won my appeal. In fact, I wish I had hired his firm in 2009 when I was first denied the interim clearance.
