Our approach is to see our clients through whatever difficulty they're facing ... thoroughly, wisely and compassionately. Our goal in the administrative law arena is to preserve and protect careers, retirements and futures. In criminal law and Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) matters, we strive to keep our clients free from final convictions, findings of guilt, and incarceration.
Our law firm, primarily focused on military law and criminal defense, uses the art and craft of negotiation, a well-developed and seasoned skill in communication and advocacy, a detailed knowledge of the facts, law, regulations, and our clients' and opponents' relative strengths and weaknesses to fashion a winning defense. Whenever possible, we engage early on and use every available advantage to secure a favorable and timely result.
Bill Meili is aware of how things can and should play out in the military system for service members who are struggling. This includes Disability Evaluation System (DES) Representation case work. As an experienced military attorney and criminal defense lawyer, Bill Meili has the capability, resources, and networks to handle cases throughout the United States and globally.
Please note: We do not handle divorce or custody cases . . . even if one or both parties have a military affiliation. We understand the need for experienced, qualified representation in these matters, and so we recommend you contact your local county Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service for further assistance. Thank you.

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.
