Resignation Supported by Chain - Rejected by HRC
Resignation Supported by Chain, Rejected by HRC
Client Testimonial #2
I can only provide the strongest recommendation for Mr. Bill Meili as an attorney, especially with respect to military matters. Bill's former service in the JAG Corps, his remaining contacts on active-duty, and his knowledge of the inner-workings of the Army were invaluable in securing a favorable outcome.
Bill took a denied request for an early release from active duty via an Unqualified Resignation (UQR) and turned it in to recommendations for approval. Bill was able to convince the same individuals who recommended disapproval to recommend approval for my reconsideration! Bill's knowledge of the system and his interpersonal skills were pivotal to the reversal of my denied request. Bill saw the entire process through completion without wavering - over six months of effort!
I was hesitant to hire an attorney who was five time-zones away, but Bill quickly learned the best hours to reach me during the day and his communications with me never left anything to be desired. In fact, during busy weeks, Bill would often make time on the weekends to discuss my case. Bill was readily available via emails and text messages as well.
There is really only one difference between my original UQR request, which was denied, and my reconsideration request, which was approved, and that is Mr. Bill Meili. I attribute the favorable outcome, and my freedom, to the abilities of Bill to get the ball rolling in the right direction and to see it all the way through.
I would not hesitate to hire Bill again.

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.
