This favorable Industrial Security Clearance decision came down last week. Good result for an outstanding man, and it truly was a gratifying day when we heard the news. Long in coming, but sweet nonetheless. I’ll let my client tell you about it in his own words…..
SUCCESSFUL INDUSTRIAL SECURITY CLEARANCE HEARING FOR KEY EMPLOYEE WITH MAJOR DEFENSE CONTRACTOR
I wouldn’t wish my circumstances on anyone, but if you ever do need a lawyer for security clearance issues, I would highly recommend Bill Meili. These issues are not to be taken lightly. The government will have a lawyer representing them.… Why not have a proven lawyer like Bill Meili and his team in your corner?
I am a former Air Force officer who works for a major defense contractor, and I’ve held a security clearance for over 22 years. But that didn’t stop me from doing something really stupid in November 2013. As a result, during my reinvestigation, I received a Statement of Reasons (SOR) informing me that my top secret clearance was in jeopardy of being revoked. Before I got in touch with Bill, I had contacted one other attorney, but his demeanor was not to my liking. I found Bill through a search on Google, and phoned him. He returned my call almost immediately, and within a couple of days I was in his office discussing my options.
Bill was very thorough in preparing the response to my SOR (Statement of Reasons). He laid out a very detailed description of the items he needed from me, and he guided me through the complex process. Bill has extensive experience as a former US Army JAG, and it shows. Based on his legal experience, we elected to have my case heard before an Administrative Judge (AJ) in person. I was very impressed with the response package that Bill and his office put together.
Bill battled for my best interests at the trial and with all follow-ups, post hearing. He never let up. I am pleased (and relieved) to say that I got a favorable ruling, and my clearance was granted.
I’ve had the occasion to need a lawyer’s assistance in the past, but I can say without any hesitation that Bill is hands-down the best lawyer with whom I’ve had personal experience. I can’t say enough good things about him as a professional, and as a person.
Thank you Scott. It was an honor and a privilege. Bill
