Recently, a noncommissioned officer (NCO) represented and defended by attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) had their security clearance reinstated and military career preserved.

Because this was an administrative disciplinary case, there are Privacy Act issues and regulations that preclude the reporting of specific details. However, what can be generally described is…

The NCO client received an administrative disciplinary action and notification of revocation of security clearance. If the security clearance was revoked, the client would face involuntary administrative discharge due to lack of requisite security clearance. Through the course of the processing of this case, the defense submitted multiple rebuttals. This included a rebuttal to the DoD Consolidated Adjudications Facility (CAF). Ultimately, the client received notification that the security clearance was reinstated and, therefore, the client would not face involuntary administrative discharge.

While this military case was successfully defended, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in previous cases does not guarantee success in any particular future case. No military lawyer or civilian defense lawyer, including those who specialize in military law, can guarantee the outcome of any military trial or case.
