Protecting Yourself In A Security Clearance Revocation Hearing

Mounting a proper defense against drug possession charges

When a member of the armed forces is facing charges of drug possession, it can compromise that person's freedom, career and reputation.

Without the right defense strategy, a drug possession charge could carry lifelong negative consequences.
