Military Officer Unqualified Resignations
By regulation, each branch of the military authorizes Unqualified Resignations. Officers must make a request, and if approved, the officer receives an honorable discharge upon receipt of separation orders. Acceptance or approval of the officer’s request is, however, discretionary with the commander acting as approval authority. It is imperative, therefore, to present a thorough and complete packet for consideration, whether the officer is in an obligated or non-obligated status. And if obligated, the officer will need to present compelling evidence supporting the request in order to receive favorable consideration.
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.
