A Client Overwhelmed With Conflicting Information
IRR Delay and Exemption Client Testimonial #31 - From a Client Who Was Overwhelmed With Conflicting Information
When I received IRR mobilizations orders from the Army, I was caught completely off guard, and I felt as overwhelmed as I ever had. I knew that I had to fight it but I had no idea where to begin. I went through every scenario I could think but I didn't have a clue on how to go about doing anything. I started searching online for any information I could find on getting an exemption from IRR deployment. The amount of information out there is vast and I didn't know what was true and what wasn't. Scanning though all of these ideas the other people say they've had success with just made me feel more overwhelmed.
Then by chance I stumbled upon Bill's website. I had never hired a lawyer for anything before and had no idea on what to believe. I brought up the idea with my family and we decided to think about it while we put an exemption packet together on our own. We figured, "what could a lawyer do that we couldn't do ourselves?" After an informative phone conversation with Bill we decided to go ahead and hire him. Right from the start we began to see how vast Bill's knowledge of the exemption process really is.
He immediately gave me a list of things that I needed to do, and I only had about a week to do them. I was completely freaked out about getting the request in on time, but I did everything that Bill told me to do and everything seemed to fall into place. The difference between the packet we would have sent in and the packet Bill put together was night and day. If you are hesitant at all when it comes to hiring Bill don't be. The knowledge that he brings to the situation is priceless and the support and confidence that he gave to me and my family was second to none.
My request for exemption was approved by the Army and with it came an honorable discharge. This process helped me put my life back into focus. Bill not only helped me with the exemption request but he also helped me find the help that I didn't even realize I needed. With Bill's help and expertise I was able to achieve an exemption from IRR mobilization. I am 110% confident that without hiring Bill Meili I would not have gotten an exemption and I would now be deployed.

I contacted Col. Meili as a fellow practitioner to gain some context and perspective on a pretty complex set of issues. Because I practice in a different field of law, Col. Meili's extensive expertise was invaluable and he was more than generous with his time. A skilled and dedicated professional who cares deeply about obtaining the best possible outcome for his clients, Bill's a leader in this field.

After an exhaustive search of military attorneys, I came across the name of Bill Meili. From my first email exchange and telephone call, I knew that Bill was the right person to handle my case. I had discussed my unique circumstance with a handful of other attorneys who felt it may be too difficult to achieve the outcome that I was seeking - but Bill was interested in me and my case, and wholeheartedly believed that we had the ball in our court. I could tell that Bill cared about me as a person and soldier, not just viewing me as a paycheck.
