Public Trust - Moderate Risk

Had a lot of credit card debt. I contacted a bankruptcy lawyer, researched debt relief companies, etc. I ultimately ended up negotiating the debt with the credit card companies and paid the settled amount in full (it was almost 20k) two months ago. Additionally, I got a Drunk in Public about a year and a half ago. Will I get a Public Trust clearance?

Maybe I should ask what are my chances for getting a Public Trust clearance? I’d be working for a contractor for the FDA. I have been working in a similar position (contractor for CMS - Centers of Medicare and Medicaid) for several years but they didn’t require a Public Trust. I’m very excited for this opportunity so I’m wondering if I won’t pass the clearance. Also, would it behoove me to get a lawyer?

Public trust is not a clearance. You have some hurdles ahead of you, but a lawyer is probably overkill.

Okay, maybe I put this question in the wrong category. Thanks for the reply. So, do you think that I have a good chance of getting the Public Trust? Is there an interview?

You will probably require a Subject interview for your Tier 2 (moderate risk PT) using the information you have provided.
