Is Your Security Clearance At Risk?
Throughout Northern Virginia, many people hold various types of security clearances. At Boone Beale PLLC, our experienced traffic attorneys want you to know that traffic tickets, a reckless driving citation or a DUI can affect the status of your security clearance.
Of course, how much your clearance is affected is based on what type of clearance it is, how long ago the tickets/offenses occurred, and how you have behaved since. For some clearances, even multiple traffic tickets during a certain period of time could indicate to employers that the employee (or prospective employee) has a problem with displaying good judgment.
You Don’t Want Any Red Flags
Any misdemeanor traffic conviction – such as reckless driving – can raise red flags during your clearance investigation. That conviction, combined with any other red flag – be it personal or financial – could be enough to reject you from getting a clearance, or end your clearance and your position with the government or a government contractor.
If you have a security clearance, it makes sense to do everything possible to protect it. While one reckless driving conviction alone might not hurt your clearance now, the next one could. Therefore, it’s important to hire Boone Beale PLLC, the traffic attorneys in Fairfax, Virginia, to fight your reckless driving ticket.
A DUI/DWI Can Cost You Your Clearance
A DUI/DWI conviction alone could prevent or cause the loss of security clearance. Many former service members wishing to obtain a security clearance after they separate from the military have learned that lesson the hard way.
It’s always important to fight a DUI/DWI charge – but for anyone who has a security clearance – or who hopes to have one in the next seven years – you need the best defense you can get. At Boone Beale PLLC, our experienced attorneys have more than 40 years of legal experience in this complex area of the law.
