Former Active Duty Colonel and Current Defense Contractor Seeking to Overcome Push Back From Agency Investigator During the Personal Interview Process



This case involved a veteran defense contractor and former senior military officer who had held a top level security clearance for many years. During the periodic re-investigation process our client ran into an apparently inexperienced, arguably over-zealous investigator.
Client was, is and always has been, competent, loyal, responsible and dedicated. He is not and never has been a threat to national security, and there are any number of good reasons why it is clearly in the national interest that our client be afforded continued access to sensitive information. However, our client ran up against an investigator and investigation process which seemed more adversarial than any he had previously experienced. This made him somewhat anxious and impatient, and his frustration didn't help alleviate the perceived adversarial nature of the process. It was my job as his attorney to evaluate all relevant issues in his past which might, in any way, be causing the investigative team from the agency concern.
After several frank and thorough meetings — in person and by phone — we were able to identify the root causes of any contention — real or perceived — and were then in a position to provide client with the tools, perspective and context necessary to make the interview process work in his favor.


Client's new Top Secret clearance was issued last week. (07-2018)


Using thirty years of experience in security clearance defense work to assess, explain and simplify a process which all too often can cause good, loyal, responsible and highly functioning people to lose sleep.

I contacted Col. Meili as a fellow practitioner to gain some context and perspective on a pretty complex set of issues. Because I practice in a different field of law, Col. Meili's extensive expertise was invaluable and he was more than generous with his time. A skilled and dedicated professional who cares deeply about obtaining the best possible outcome for his clients, Bill's a leader in this field.

After an exhaustive search of military attorneys, I came across the name of Bill Meili. From my first email exchange and telephone call, I knew that Bill was the right person to handle my case. I had discussed my unique circumstance with a handful of other attorneys who felt it may be too difficult to achieve the outcome that I was seeking - but Bill was interested in me and my case, and wholeheartedly believed that we had the ball in our court. I could tell that Bill cared about me as a person and soldier, not just viewing me as a paycheck.
