Jobs for Cleared Attorneys

Anyone know what the market is like or if there is a demand, probably in the DC region only, for attorneys with clearances and/or experience in the intel field?

Outside of the obvious government jobs, there are some big firms with Nat Sec practices in DC (I recall Covington having one), and a lot of firms have done pro bono work defending people at Gitmo (, which I'm sure requires a clearance. I'd also look at Booz Allen Hamilton for attorney and non attorney/consulting positions.

Might also consider the San Diego market, as I know military contract stuff is big down there, but I have no first hand experience with that market.

ETA: I doubt there is much demand for "cleared attorneys" as such, but there is a lot of demand for attorneys with relevant prior government experience (USAO, DoD, DoJ, etc.) who incidentally have/had security clearances.
