I had concerns with the outcome of my periodic security clearance after completing my SF86 and conducting my personal interview with the investigator. I reached out to Ron and discussed with him my issues and received a straight forward and honest path ahead. Changes had occurred since my last periodic review and all arrests, regardless if convicted or not, must now be reported. Even though mine were adjudicated favorably, Ron gave me the peace of mind and avenues to follow while awaiting the next step within the process. Even though adjudication for my arrests were favorable and my clearance continued, I would recommend Ron to anyone with any doubts, the sooner you contact him in the process, the better. After speaking with him, my answers to the investigator would of been different if I sought his advice earlier. He is one of the most professional, and personable, attorneys at law that I have ever associated with and comes highly recommended!

After hiring an attorney off the internet that claimed to "specialize" in security clearance matters. This attorney i hired off the internet helped me put together my response to the governments SOR (statement of reasons). This response was denied by DODHA and my case was set for trial to be heard by a federal administrative judge.
At this point I was in real danger of loosing my security clearance, my job, my home, and everything else I've worked so hard for. I was referred by a lawyer friend of mine to Mr.Sykstus. He told me that he was the best person to contact to get my clearance issues fixed. He was 100% right, not only was Ron professional and knowledgeable, he was constantly in contact with me either via email or phone throughout the process. Keeping me in the loop the entire time leading up to the trial. He even gave me his personal cell number so I could get ahold of him outside of normal business hours should I have a question. He took care of everything for me, and did a fantastic job of laying out the details of my case to the judge when the time finally came for my case to be heard.
I bet your wondering what the results of all this was. My name was 100% cleared and my clearance was reinstated. I truly believe without the help Ron and his legal team, that there may have been a completely different outcome to this matter. I possibly could have had my entire career ruined over something that I had nothing to do with.
I wholeheartedly and without reservation would recommend Ron Sykstus to anyone that is having issues with their security clearance. Don't be like me and waste your time and money trying to hire some so called "security clearance expert" off the internet and go strait to Mr.Sykstus from the start. You will save yourself a lot of time and money that way. He is truly an expert in his area of law and worth every penny. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me and my family.

I hired Ron to help in a financial crisis that I was having. He was very helpful when we met with him. He went above and beyond to settle a claim that would have caused me financial hardship. I am very grateful for all of his help

From the initial consultation to the final discharge, Mr. Sykstus and his team were ALWAYS available to walk us through this difficult decision and process. His advice and recommendations were spot on. Our situation was fairly complex, yet Mr. Sykstus was able to break down each decision so we were comfortable moving forward. I am happy to say his team made a difficult and painful process tolerable and at times even comfortable! I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Sykstus and his team....Thanks Ron!

I consulted with Ron a few years ago when my divorce was finalized to get some advice regarding joint debt with my ex husband. He quickly responded to all of my questions and did not sugar coat anything but was very sympatric to my situation and gave me a very realistic view of the different paths that I could take. I recently hired Ron to handle some new issues that have come to light regarding more joint debt with my ex husband and he helped me come up with a plan that would allow me to settle the debt instead of filing bankruptcy. He is also incredibly knowledgeable of the laws regarding security clearances and continuing to maintain your cleared status while navigating creditors and debt resolution. Even though it had been a few years since I had talked to him, he still remembered my case and I was able to get an appointment with him right away. I have simplify been amazed at how quickly he has answered my emails or responded to my phone calls or questions. Not only is Ron vey knowledgeable he seems to have a passion for helping people.

I was in a lot of school debt and Ron was able to resolve my financial crisis. He helped wipe my slate clean which was amazing. He was very informative and kept me up-to-date on all changes. Couldn't have chose a better person to represent me.

I cannot recommend Ron Sykstus any higher! He is an amazing lawyer & a wonderfully kind person on top of that. We came in in desperation, and on our first meeting he made us comfortable & took the great weight we'd been carrying off our shoulders. We would've lost our house, our possessions, pretty much everything without his help! He saved our lives. I cannot stress enough how wonderful he is. He took our case and bent it to all of our needs where we can have lives again. He and his team make the process so much easier than I could imagine & the service is well worth every penny & more! I had a friend going through a similar bankruptcy & he was charged double what we were & came out almost further behind with large monthly payments being taken out of his checks for years. With Ron's help, we didn't have to do that. AND his demeanor and smile make you happy even when you are feeling desperately sad inside. Love him. Go to Ron. You'll be so happy you did.

I have been a client of Mr. Sykstus for many years. Ron has always provided relative advice, and taken action material to my best interest regarding financial matters, veterans issues and security clearance concerns. Any issue that I have raised with Ron has always been resolved in my best interest.
