Our clients often come to us concerned about how a reckless driving conviction will impact their current or future security clearance. In Northern Virginia, a sizable percentage of the population either works directly for the government, for a government related entity, or for a government contractor. Many of these positions require a rigorous background check. While there are many levels of security clearance, a criminal conviction is detrimental to passing the background check and attaining even the lowest level. Once an employee has attained a security clearance, a criminal conviction can jeopardize that clearance, and by extension that employee’s job and even career.
Unfortunately, even a single reckless driving conviction can complicate the process of obtaining a background check or security clearance. The attorneys at Henson Pachuta have handled cases where our client has security clearance and understand the special considerations that are put into play under these circumstances.
