Advocates For Employees In Security Clearance Matters
Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., has been representing people in employment law matters for nearly 20 years. We have the experience, knowledge and resources needed to help you obtain and protect your security clearance.
If your security clearance is at risk — We understand the suitability factors that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) considers when reviewing the status of an applicant or the status of a person with security clearance. If the applicant or security clearance holder has negative factors in his or her background, such as bad credit, alcohol or drug use, a DUI, questionable personal behavior or personal bankruptcy, we can develop an appropriate response. For example, we defeated an effort to revoke a security clearance for a client who had admitted to recreational drug use in college.
If your security clearance has been suspended or revoked —Our lawyers are knowledgeable about the security clearance appeals process, and we are skilled at presenting mitigating evidence to overcome the basis for the revocation in the Statement of Reasons issued by the DOHA or review board. If necessary, we will litigate an appeal on the merits.
"I also appreciated Alan's frankness and his ability to identify what is important and what is not when going through a case like this." — A client of Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C.

"Alan gave me the information I needed to save my federal career.
I was selected for a promotion requiring a drug test. I tested positive for a drug my doctor authorized in conjunction with a cancer diagnosis. A Medical Review Officer in my agency questioned the validity of my doctor's authorization, and even the medical basis for the medication I used. I turned to Alan for help.
Alan quickly gathered the relevant details during a consultation. He gave me advice I needed to marshal the support of my supervisors and medical team. He told me how to work with the MRO to get a verified negative test result.
Most importantly, he didn't charge me for unnecessary services. The consult was all I needed. He told me, "if you had a real problem, I would tell you. Return if the MRO verifies the test positive. There is more we can do."
Alan was right. After a great deal of effort the MRO verified the test negative. I got my well earned promotion.
Alan gave me peace of mind and a plan to achieve a just result. He offered only the services I needed to be successful. I doubt I will need his services again, but if I ever did, Alan would be the first person I'd call.
Alan is an outstanding lawyer. My family and I owe him a debt of gratitude."
