Another Security Clearance Victory

Bill Savarino successfully assisted an applicant to gain his clearance through a reapplication following an adverse ruling by the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA). The applicant was denied a clearance and contested the denial in a hearing at DOHA where he represented himself. The DOHA hearing judge found that it was not in the national interest to grant him a clearance. Mr. Savarino subsequently persuaded the Director of DOHA to permit the applicant to reapply for a clearance after which DOHA granted him a clearance.
