DUI- Clearance Reinstated

April 2018

Client - a civilian employee of our military- was convicted of a DUI while holding a security clearance. Later, he was accused of violating the terms and conditions of his probation. This led to an immediate revocation of his clearance via a Statement of Reasons. He retained Ms. Ayotte for his case, and began working on mitigation with her team of experts. The case proceeded to a hearing before the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals, and after almost a year of waiting, the decision was granted in client's favor. Client was fortunate to be able to remain working during that time, but now has access to his complete range of duties reinstated.
