CAREER SAVING SHOW CAUSE, BOI DEFENSE
Posted by CPT anonymous
October 19, 2021>
As an officer who had never before required a lawyer much less foreseen a Show Cause/Board of Inquiry (BOI) in my future, I had no idea what to do. I began by calling a few military lawyers and their free consultation consisted of a five minute discussion and then what the fee would be. But when I found COL(R) Bill Meili, his free consultation consisted of examining documents, multiple discussions, and a frankness I appreciated when it seemed the whole world was against me. And he provided all of this before I even decided to hire him as my lawyer. COL(R) Meili is someone who cared not only about the case, but also about what type of person I am - and have been - as well as what the Army means to me.
When you're out of hope and optimism while drowning in despair that you have given everything to the Army, and are now in danger of losing it all, he is the one to lift you up and guide you back to yourself. He helped save my career, and I will be forever grateful for everything he did.

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.
