    • I recommend Alan Edmunds.

    I was represented by attorney Edwards for a complex security clearance issue and he provided the most professional, proficient and timely service. Our outcome was a positive one and the follow-up and follow-through on all matters from Attorney Edmunds was the best service I've receive in any representation. If you have a security clearance issue, Mr. Edmunds is definitely the attorney to call. Thank you and your staff Attorney Edmunds for outstanding service.

    • I recommend Alan Edmunds.

    I used the law firm of Alan Edmunds to assist with responding to a Statement of Reasons. I emailed Alan on a Saturday and received an immediate response the same day. Alan asked me about the case and offered me a flat rate. I told Alan I wanted to speak to a few other attorneys locally and that I would get back to him.

    After speaking to these other firms, I was astonished at the cost they waned to charge. All of them wanted to skip the written response because they said that written responses hardly work and wanted to go right to a hearing and bring in expert witnesses. Their cost was between 8-12K.

    I went back to Alan and he said that his firm has a great track record of written responses and I trusted him. Well, that paid off because after working with one of the attorneys in Mr. Edmunds firm, my security clearance was granted.

    Ryan and the rest of the firm were easy to work with, very accessible, and good at explaining what documents I needed and why. I would use this law firm again if I ever needed legal assistance with a security clearance and highly recommend them.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    I used Alan Edmunds lawyer for my security clearance case on 2010. They charged flat rate for the hearing, The flat rate is cheaper compare to other lawyer charged, but services are cheap too. DO NOT WASTE COUPLE THOUSAND DOLLARS AND LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WIN THE CASE. The lawyer told me this is a easy case, nothing to worry about, we will win. They did not told me the strategy how to win this case, and whatever they prepared for the hearing were other security clearance cases that post on government website and documents related to me. We met at the build where hearing office located, he only asked two or three questions about my personal information which are on my documents that he should have in his office. The hearing did not take very long because he did not have any documents or points to show to the judge. After case denial on the
    hearing, I paid them again to file appeal, all they did were mailed my write up letter to appeal the case to the appeal office without anything else, I could do it by myself, and they charged me couple thousand dollars again just to mail the letter for appeal. Either they already know this case is not going to win or they just do not case about the case, because the flat rate is pay advance, they already got the money.Good luck if you going to use him.

    I really can't thank Mr. Edmunds enough for getting me my DOD Secret Clearance. I had tough case (Foreign Influence) and my clearance was declined because I have foreign family around the world. I asked few people I know and they recommended Mr. Edmunds to handle my case. I contacted him and hi did not hesitate to take the case despite the fact the difficulty of the case. I flew from Kuwait (I work as a contractor for the US Army) to Arlington, VA for the hearing and I met Mr. Edmunds and went to the hearing together. He fought so hard for me in court and the judge granted me security clearance. I really can't thank him enough for taking care of me and taking my case on personal level. I will recommend him to everyone I know for sure.

    Very Powerful lawyer, I contacted Mr Edmunds in September 2013 about my security Clearance which was about to be revoked due to Financial issues. Mr Edmunds was able to reply my SOR that was sent to me and requested for a hearing. I could not afford the fee due to my financial issues, but he went ahead and took my case. He flew to Virginia and represented me at the hearing. After a couple of weeks I got a call from him wishing me congratulation and now I am happy and no stress and more educated in Clearance issues. I would recommend Mr. Edmunds to anyone who needs help in Security Clearance issues....The whole staff was always in contact with me for any updates..

    • I recommend Alan Edmunds.

    Mr. Edmunds and his firm helped me draft my SOR response. They were extremely thorough and seemed to know exactly what would work. In short, less than a month after submitting my SOR response, my security clearance was reinstated. I would definitely recommend this firm.
