A Message from the Chair

Welcome to the NSLA

I am honored to be elected as the Chair of the National Security Lawyers Association. The members of the NSLA believe in the importance of safeguarding sensitive national security information. We seek opportunities to assist members of the intelligence community who might be looking to get a better understanding of the national security framework, adjudicative guidelines, and the adjudicative process.

Our board members are litigators with years of experience in assisting individual and facility security clearance applicants through the application process from application through final appeal and reapplications for individuals who have previously been denied a clearance. Nearly all of our board members have served as military members and have held security clearances in the military and intelligence community capacities in the past. All are regular contributors and resources for media outlets dealing with security clearance questions and concerns. Please do not hesitate to reach out to discuss what we might have to offer you or your organization. ​
