Dental Officer Victorious in GOMOR and Show Cause - BOI Action
Dental Officer Victorious in GOMOR and Show Cause - Board of Inquiry Action
Mr. Meili advocated wholeheartedly for my future. He prepared to engage many POCs at JAG and HRC who may have had a stake in handling my GOMOR, Show Cause – Board of Inquiry (BOI), and RILO situation. The lack of real proof and evidence to support an "alcohol-related incident" warranting a GOMOR had provided enough wiggle room for an honorable discharge. Seven months of agony awaiting what I believed to be my sealed fate finally arrived on 1 September 2016 with a discharge ETS of 14 September 2016. Perhaps a miracle worker, Mr. Meili fought tooth-and-nail to defend my good name, to justify an honorable discharge of service. During the prior seven months, he regularly reminded me to stay vigilant and non-confrontational amid a unit and higher chain of command that marked me for termination. His many years of practicing law clearly speak for themselves. If you find yourself unsure of where to go during adversarial circumstances, Mr. Meili is a terrific advocate to deliver perhaps the best outcome in your case. If your unit or colleagues tell you to simply "Go away and disappear," as if you're a leper, give Mr. Meili's office a call.

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.
