Industrial Security Clearance Hearing for Key Employee with Major Defense Contractor

Industrial Security Clearance Hearing for Key Employee with Major Defense Contractor

I am a former Air Force officer who works for a major defense contractor, and I've held a security clearance for over 22 years. But that didn't stop me from doing something really stupid in November 2013. As a result, during my reinvestigation, I received a Statement of Reasons (SOR) informing me that my top secret clearance was in jeopardy of being revoked. Before I got in touch with Bill, I had contacted one other attorney, but his demeanor was not to my liking. I found Bill through a search on Google, and phoned him. He returned my call almost immediately, and within a couple of days I was in his office discussing my options.

Bill was very thorough in preparing the response to my SOR (Statement of Reasons). He laid out a very detailed description of the items he needed from me, and he guided me through the complex process. Bill has extensive experience as a former US Army JAG, and it shows. Based on his legal experience, we elected to have my case heard before an administrative judge in person. I was very impressed with the response package that Bill and his office put together.

After a long delay (it is the government after all), I got a hearing in November 2015. Bill suggested that I have at least a couple of witnesses from work who could testify on my behalf. I was extremely fortunate to have a manager and senior engineer who were willing to speak about my work performance — both before and after the incident. Bill was instrumental in preparing them for the hearing process.

While waiting for the ruling, Bill continued to battle for my best interests. He never let up. I am pleased (and relieved) to say that I got a favorable ruling, and my clearance was granted. The whole process from beginning to end took almost 2 ½ years. And Bill was with me the whole time. Many times during this stressful experience, Bill would offer reassuring words, and it helped me stay grounded in reality.

I've had the occasion to need a lawyer's assistance in the past, but I can say without any hesitation that Bill was hands-down the best lawyer with whom I've had personal experience. I can't say enough good things about him as a professional. Additionally, from the time I spent talking with him about other issues, I would consider him one of the most personable individuals I've ever met.

I don't wish my circumstances on anyone, but if you ever do need a lawyer for security clearance issues, I would highly recommend Bill. These issues are not to be taken lightly. The government will have a lawyer representing them. Why not have a proven lawyer like Bill Meili and his team in your corner?

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.
