Issues & Cases


Hardship Discharge Representation Case Study #1

Matter: Medical Officer (Doctor) requests discharge for Hardship/ Inability to form a family care plan.

Service: Army

Summary: This case involved fighting for a request for discharge based on Extreme Hardship. Using his experience with Administrative Discharge Boards while serving as a Military Lawyer, Bill Meili has successfully defended many service members who find themselves with family, financial or personal hardship.

Client was a Medical Officer who had gone through a bitter divorce. He had twice submitted his unqualified resignation but had heard nothing back from his higher headquarters when he contacted us. In the meantime, he was struggling as a custodial parent with producing a workable family care plan should his unit deploy. Additionally, because he had a special needs child, it was critical for him to be with his family.

When he contacted our office, our experience as administrative discharge lawyers, and military lawyers with extensive experience with all aspects of the administrative discharge process enabled us to roll up our sleeves as an advocate for his family. At our suggestion, the children were effectively evaluated, physically, mentally and emotionally. Our client collected the documents necessary for us to best speak on his behalf, and we drafted a winning Hardship Discharge Brief and then lobbied on our client's behalf up and down his chain of command.

Result: The Client's resignation was approved and he was discharged Honorably from further military service.

Highlights: Our ability to use our experience with requests for Administrative type discharges and Hardship Cases in particular as a military lawyer, to help a Medical Officer (Doctor) and father make it through an extremely difficult time in his life and in the lives of his two children.
