OFFICER MSO ELECTION OPTION WAS AN ISSUE
IRR Delay and Exemption
Client Testimonial #7 - This Officer's MSO Election Option Was An Issue
I will never forget the day I opened the memorandum from the Department of the Army requiring my involuntary mobilization from the IRR to Active Duty. My first thought was disbelief, followed by panic then anger. I called HRC to discuss my options. Needless to say they were no help. I spoke with my PMO, he was as helpful as HRC. My father-in-law suggested I contact an attorney. I Googled "Delay & Exemption Attorney's." Bill Meili's website appeared.
I served as an Infantry Officer in the Army. I separated from Active Duty as a Captain in 2001. I had been in the IRR for seven years following my separation. In September of 2006, I received an Election of Options – Military Service Obligation memorandum. I selected box # 2, electing to stay in the IRR not ever thinking I would receive orders requiring me to report to Active Duty.
After speaking with Bill at length about my situation, I felt confident that I had hired the right attorney. Bill began working on my case to meet the initial deadline. We spoke often, including weekends. His diligence in returning emails and phone calls is equally impressive as him flying to St. Louis to speak in person with my case manager. Bill also took the time to meet with Senior Management from my company to discuss the process of gaining a successful exemption. He provided me with guidance along the way to aid him in assembling the evidence he needed for a complete brief. In addition, Bill frequently updated my wife and I as to the status of my case.
When you hire Bill Meili you are hiring an individual who is committed to your case. His twenty-six years of experience becomes apparent with the extensive knowledge he exhibits of Army Regulation. Bill's professional integrity, strong work ethic and dedication to his clients is admirable. He gave me the confidence we would be successful, therefore allowing me to stay focused on my family and career. In closing, I gained my exemption with an Honorable Discharge. My family and I are eternally grateful for the personal touch Bill Meili provided to us.
