Serving Clients with Distinction Since 1976

The question arises: Why do so many people choose The Edmunds Law Firm to represent them in cases involving national security clearances? The answer is really simple. First and foremost, the experience of Attorney Alan Edmunds and his associates can create a huge advantage to any applicant. Our law firm’s attorneys have handled security clearance cases across the United States. Our firm is one of the largest law firms in the nation for security clearance. We have found no other law firm that has had such a high frequency of representation in so many different states.

The second reason that people hire The Edmunds Law Firm is attributed to our success rate. While no lawyer or law firm wins every case, The Edmunds Law Firm has had an incredible record of winning cases throughout the United States. This record is no secret. Any individual can browse the websites of The Edmunds Law Firm or the Defense Office of Hearings & Appeals (DOHA) website and review the decisions of the court. The Edmunds Law Firm prominently appears and has won virtually every type of case that has been brought by the government.

The third reason that individuals hire The Edmunds Law Firm is due to our unique fee structure. The Edmunds Law Firm quotes a flat fee that keeps overall costs manageable for our clients. Other law firms-particularly those in the Washington, D.C. area-charge an hourly rate that can result in legal fees exceeding $10,000.00 for a hearing. Normally, The Edmunds Law Firm can handle hearings throughout the United States for half that amount of money. We offer payment plans and we accept credit cards.
