As expected from researching the Edmunds Law firm, I have nothing but good things to say about the firm. Certainly, it was discouraging to have a case passed to multiple assistants (and have to answer the same questions continuously to bring them up to speed) however, in the end, what should have been an easy victory case (relative to others seen on the DOHA website) proved to be just that. I was deployed for a majority of the time that the case was open, and the firm worked on my behalf due to not being able to attend the hearing in person. Attorneys interfaced with the judge on my behalf and the end result was a favorable decision. Do NOT risk your livelihood to a shadetree lawyer. We all make mistakes and clearances can get called into question. This firm did a knockout job of proving that there was an isolated incident, and I did my part to back that up.

I hired the Edmunds Law Firm shortly after receiving a Statement of Reasons from my security officer concerning their intent to revoke my security clearance. Attorney Ryan Nerney expertly handled my case which led to a favorable adjudication. He advised me of items he needed to review and requested detailed information from me regarding the security concerns. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Nerney quickly answered my concerns and was always available to me whenever I contacted his office. Following his receipt of all facts and information, a very thorough written response resulted in the favorable adjudication without the need for a hearing or board. I highly recommend the Mr. Nerney and the Edmunds Law Firm for anyone facing a security clearance issue.

I initially emailed the Edmunds Law Firm about a letter I had received from the Department of Defense stating they were getting ready to deny my SECRET security clearance and giving me a very short window to appeal. The first call I got was from Alan Edmunds and they were on the case immediately filing the correct paperwork, contacting the appropriate government folks and staving off a pending denial of my clearance. Mr. Ryan Nerney was assigned to my case and he carefully walked me thru the exact steps I needed to take (including requesting a hearing to which my company FSO said I didn't need to request and reply in writing) to ensure I had the best chance of reviving my now on life support security clearance. I am happy to say it worked! I had spent almost 3 years responding back and fourth with the government when if I had only reached out to the Edmunds Law Firm when I got my first SOR I could have saved myself a year of stress and had my clearance much earlier. I can't say enough about the Edmunds Law Firm and Mr Nerney, they are professional, know the law, have great experience and relationships with the local (in my case San Diego) government personnel and treat you with the utmost respect even with some of your "skeletons in the closet" are a bit embarrassing. I would hire again in a second and highly recommend the Edmunds Law Firm for any DoD security clearance issues as they'll definitely get the job done!

Hired law firm to clear security clearance issue. After paying $$$, I still have no idea what the issue is on why my clearance has been flagged. A complete waste of money!!

Attorney Edmunds and his team at The Edmunds firm provided excellent and quality service. My needs were met and that the firm was invested in me and my case. They were easily accessible, got back to me quickly, aggressive and got me the results that I needed. They saved my career. Attorney Edmunds, his associates, and his staff all produced the quality of an attorney that anyone would want when responding to an SOR or any other Security Clearance issues.

After getting notice from my security officer that I would be receiving a Statement of Reasons to preliminarily revoke my Secret clearance and deny my request for a TS/SCI, I thought my career in the military was over. I had no clue what I was doing or who the best option would be to help me with my case. I contacted Alan Edmunds Firm after spending hours on Google reading reviews for other firms. I called and spoke to Mr. Ryan Nerney about my case. He explained the entire response process, all possible outcomes, pricing, and even offered a military discount. He was friendly, professional and sounded like he had a lot of experience.
It all sounded too good to be true so I decided to look into a few other firms before making my decision. None of the other lawyers I spoke with even came close to comparing to the Edmund Firm in pricing, willingness to help or professionalism. I decided to go with Mr. Nerney and his team, which turned out to be the best decision I have ever made for my career.
It took me two months to gather all the documents needed to build a strong response with Mr. Nerney. He provided valuable input along the way, advice on how to communicate with my chain of command about the matter and was always quick with responding via email. This was especially important to me because of being stationed overseas.
After the response was submitted, I was still preparing for the worst. Mr. Nerney told me it would take 1-3 months to hear back and that if the response was not favorable, we would do what needed to be done to prepare for the hearing stage. Not even TWO WEEKS later, I had my answer from DODCAF - FAVORABLE SECURITY DETERMINATION AFTER DUE PROCESS. I cannot describe the relief I felt in that moment and I owe all my thanks to Ryan and the Alan Edmund's Team. If you are active duty and have a security clearance concern, this firm is your best chance to keep your clearance and your career.

Over the past two years, I’ve worked with several divorce attorney’s and Alan was by-far the most professional, passionate and determined of them all. His clear direction and guidance allowed me to achieve both of my life-balance goals; financial and family-based. I would highly recommend Alan and his firm to anyone seeking professional and successful divorce litigation.
